Central Park revamp

Public projects in Elkhart, such as revamping Central Park, may only be awarded to contractors who live up to a list of new requirements if the City Council adopts a Responsible Bidder Ordinance that some local leaders favor.

ELKHART — The City of Elkhart should do more to promote fair contracting.

That is the opinion of the Indiana, Illinois, Iowa Foundation for Fair Contracting (III FFC), which is encouraging Elkhart’s City Council to adopt an ordinance that would make the city’s definition of a “responsible bidder” stricter.
