Council Denies GEW’s Smart Meter Bid Protest

Patrick Petelski of GEW Mechanical explaining Monday night that although his company was unable to obtain Smart Meter pricing from distributors, had spent some 200 hours working on its response to the County’s request for Smart Meters, so bid it without a cost for the meters. The County found the GEW bid nonresponsive. GEW filed a protest and after hearing testimony from witnesses May 7 and May 13, Council voted 6-0 Monday night to deny GEW’s protest, saying the County had followed the proper bidding process. GEW has the right to appeal its protest to a court of law. Print Screen photo
