Boise City Council approved 10 firms to work at the behest of the mayor on undisclosed ” “miscellaneous on-call climate, energy and sustainability services.”
The $150,000 amount is pretty much an open ended allotment for the city while it pursues its goal of being 100% renewable-energy powered by 2035.
The resolution giving the mayor authority to spend the money includes deals with an ad agency and a public relations firm. Each of the 10 firms approved in the proposal process will work “as needed.” They all filed “qualifications” as part of the bid process.
This is yet another vague item stashed away in the council consent agenda with little or no public discussion, giving spending authority to the mayor. The IDAHO PRESS lists the firms awarded contracts.
