It could feel like déjà vu at tonight’s Springfield City Council committee of the whole meeting.
The city’s contract with NAPA Auto Parts… which was the subject of weeks of debate before being approved by aldermen last month… could be back on the table tonight.
Some aldermen are questioning the validity of the agreement to provide parts for the city’s new consolidated garage. That’s because a state purchasing agreement that was used as the legal basis for the no-bid deal may not exist.
City attorney Todd Greenburg says the contract is valid anyway, because aldermen approved it.
