[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Council of the Town of Monroe 5-8-1995 (Ch. 5 of the 1976 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
As provided in Connecticut General Statutes § 7-148v, the Town of Monroe hereby establishes a general purchasing policy. The purpose of this policy is to ensure fair competition, to favor businesses located in Monroe and to achieve the best value for the expenditure while not being detrimental to the provisioning of Town services in a timely manner.
The First Selectman shall develop implementing procedures for this policy within 60 days of enactment of this chapter. After approval by the Town Council, these procedures shall be made available to the public in the Town Clerk's office and in any other manner deemed appropriate by the First Selectman and the Town Clerk.
The procedures shall include provisions for the preference of businesses located in Monroe, provided that the Monroe vendors are competitive in almost all aspects of the purchase and if the First Selectman deems it to be in the best interests of the Town to do so.
The First Selectman may make changes to the policy, provided that the changes are approved by the Town Council.
The procedures shall be effective and valid under applicable laws. If any provision of these procedures is held invalid under applicable law, the remaining provisions shall not be affected thereby.[1]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
