NORTH PORT — A police investigation found a city supervisor did not violate state law or city policy by allegedly throwing bid documents in a garbage can and having an employee show them to a bidder.
According to a recent report from the North Port Police Department, the incident occurred during the bidding for fire alarm systems in 2012 for a contract that later was awarded in 2013. The case was reviewed by the state Attorney General’s Office late last year. Since bid rigging or bid tampering is illegal, the Attorney General’s Office determined the local department should investigate.
