BERT chooses not to do business locally

Editorial Opinion by Gary Wamsley

Continuing a policy of not supporting local business unless you are a member of the Berthoud Economic Resource Team (BERT), local web site developers were eliminated from consideration for building the BERT/Town web site. The contract for developing the un-needed but expensive web site will go to an out of town contractor.

One would think that a prime factor in any contract spending taxpayer money would be to keep the funds in Berthoud and to support local business but that is apparently not important to the committee or the Town.

BERT seems to concentrate its efforts on spending taxpayer dollars to benefit its members but not in supporting existing businesses in town. You can read several opinions about this on the Berthoud Town Form .

I invite you to return here and leave your comments.
