Come on Mark Henry! You mean to tell me you saved the county $1.35 million by paying $665,000 ("Commissioners agree to pay $665K in FM 646 dispute," The Daily News, Sept. 12)?
The county entered into a contract with a company, did not live up to your end of the contract and had to pay $665,000. The county possibly entered into a contract in bad faith knowing you could not fulfill your responsibilities and took advantage of a contractor who did not know this. The next lowest bid should not even be in the discussion.
The actions cost the county taxpayers $665,000; end of story.
