Sandy Springs Selects Contractor

As reported here before, Sandy Springs selected a contractor to manage the city's administrative functions and run the hands-on parts of the government.

Following a unanimous vote Wednesday by the commission, CH2M Hill-OMI immediately will begin working out details on how to operate the newly created city of almost 90,000. But it will do so without a contract, which could be approved Dec. 1 at the earliest. That's when the community of Sandy Springs officially becomes the city of Sandy Springs.

The proposed contract is worth $32 million - nearly half what the city was expecting to spend! Oliver Porter, the chairman of the commission said: "That's more service for less cost than anything we could've hoped for."
