Mayor Weinberger & City Council President Knodell Statement on Burlington Telecom Process
Burlington, VT – Mayor Weinberger and City Council President Knodell released the following update on the Burlington Telecom process:
“Since Tuesday we have spent hours together and with other parties exploring whether there is a way in which the fourth bidder could re-enter the BT sales process. The bidder has chosen to remain withdrawn from the process. The City greatly appreciates the interest the bidder had in Burlington and the ideas and energy they brought to the process.
“Resolving this matter has delayed focus on the bids that are before the City Council for consideration. Instead of voting to narrow the field to two bids on October 2, as planned, the Council will hear a public summary by Terry Dorman of each of the three proposals and have the opportunity to ask Dorman & Fawcett and the City’s attorneys questions about the bids. The Council will then vote to select two final bidders to conduct legal due diligence with on October 16.”
