Editor's Note: See 53 P.S. § 101 et seq.
If a contract must be awarded to a contractor who supports a policy of religious discrimination as defined in § 41-1 hereof, because the contractor is the lowest responsible bidder or the goods or services are not reasonably obtainable from other contractors who do not provide such support, then the contracting agency shall submit a statement to the Business Administrator detailing the reasons for such an action. The Business Administrator shall file that statement with the City Clerk.
The Business Administrator shall provide a list of the persons, firms or corporations with which the city has contracted for goods or services which have refused to subscribe to the MacBride Principles to the City Council on an annual basis.
