In a private contract, SOMEBODY ultimately is accountable. In a public contract like this, EVERYBODY is served by wrangling on and on. There is still much more money to be made by lawyers, arbitrators, consultants, etc. and the board will ultimately pay everybody off because 1) they don't want all the dirty laundry in court and 2) IT'S NOT THEIR MONEY. The only risk to the board is their reputation and that is OK with all the Chamber types. They could care less about "spectators" even if we embarrass them occasionally.
We are nowhere near the bottom yet - order some more ink, Caz.
