City staff submitted a proposal for the nonprofit East Market Street Development Corp.
to be the lead agent in the development of the Bessemer Center...
Council member Zack Matheny expressed concern that the lead agent wasn’t sent out to bid,
setting off a heated debate over whether or not East Market Street Development
is qualified as a sole source provider.
...council member Robbie Perkins made a motion
...to set up an RFP process for Bessemer Center.
...the nonprofit already receives funding from the city.
