The controversial bidding process for expansion of the Broome County Jail is producing no new results. 

The County Executive’s office had wanted to expedite the process by moving to waive the competitive bidding process. The legislature shelved the waiver and the project was open to other proposals.

At the deadline last week, the Rochester company originally named to do the work, LaBella Associates, and Highland Associates of Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania were the only firms to submit proposals.

The legislature’s Public Works and Transportation Committee yesterday heard presentations from the companies and again settled on LaBella.

The contract proposal now goes before the full legislature next week for a vote.

Broome Countyis embarking on a five-point-seven million dollar project to renovate the jail to address over-crowding and to comply with state mandates dealing with medical facilities for male and female inmates.
