At this evening’s Cleveland City Council meeting, Ordinance Number 496-10, the 10-year no-bid contract for LED products and a promise of 350 jobs from Sunpu Opto has been tabled! — suspend consideration of a pending motion. For all intents and purpose the Ordinance appears to be dead. There will be further discussions as to why the Ordinance was tabled. It was expected to be voted on as early as Monday June 7th.
Although the Ordinance may be dead. The issue should be kept alive. The City should still be pursuing a strategy to procure and enter the market of LED Lighting, only now, in a way that is more transparent, open and competitive and based on the merits and credibility of the companies and products that respond to the City’s needs.
