CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A decision last week to let a private contractor install a water main along this stretch of Del Prado Boulevard ends up being changed in a "do-over".
After the vote several council members had second thoughts and asked council to re-consider the original vote. Councilman Bill Diele explains.
"A motion for re-consideration would then have to be voted on and passed by the council. If that happens its as if the first vote never took place."
Council's change of heart to let city workers do the job is expected to save taxpayers nearly 200 thousand dollars.
But some question the savings saying private contractors work would be warrantied. Now if there is a problem, the city has to fix it, adding to costs.
