Integrity of Marshall Fire debris cleanup contract questioned again in lawsuit

Boulder Daily Camera: Less than two weeks after a Boulder County District Court judge tossed a lawsuit questioning the integrity of Boulder County’s bidding process for its Marshall Fire debris cleanup contract, another lawsuit has been filed in the same court with some of the same allegations.

Ceres Environmental Services Inc., a Florida contractor that was not the winning bidder, is suing the county and the members of the Boulder County Commission, alleging that DRC Emergency Services LLC was awarded the contract after a bidding process shrouded in secrecy and misrepresentations.

The lawsuit asks the court to overrule Boulder County’s decision to deny an appeal by Ceres and claims that a separate motion will be forthcoming that will demand the county pause its debris-removal process while the lawsuit is adjudicated.
