Plymouth County: Commissioners Disagree If Consultant Contract Bid is Required

The county woodlot could have tremendous value to county and town revenues.

But the 106 acres beside the Camelot Industrial Park off Long Pond Road in Plymouth has extremely limited access.

Chairman of Plymouth County commissioners Dan Pallotta proposes hiring Troy Clarkson, former county administrator and former town manager for Bridgewater and Hanover, as a consultant to find that access.

The county’s lawyer has given an opinion to the commissioners that they don’t need to put the consultant contract out to bid.

One commissioner, former chairman Sandra Wright, disagrees and would like to see a bid put out.

Pallotta proposes paying Clarkson $40,000 for the work. Plymouth County Commissioners meet tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m. in the county administration building on Obery Street in Plymouth.

County Commissioners: Greg Hanley, Sandra Wright, Dan Pallotta
