City in struggle over contracts with Tony Accurso
The city’s in something of a struggle with Tony Accurso over contracts – it cancelled three, and Accurso responded immediately with legal threats because the law does say the city has to take the lowest bid. But it seems Tony walked out of there with $33 million worth of contracts after all, the mayor pleading the necessity for the work to get done.
I mean, you’ve got to admire the chutzpah. And Tony does get things done.
A stoppage of commuter trains Thursday morning arose because of Tony Accurso – a truck belonging to Louisbourg Construction had been left across the tracks between Vendôme and Lucien-l’Allier, effectively bringing to a halt three entire lines right at rush hour.
