STAMFORD, CT — The Board of Representatives has approved two maintenance contracts with AFB Construction Management, which has managed the city''s parks and building facilities since 2003, according to the Stamford Advocate.
The company was in the middle of the first of four annual extensions to a one-year contract, signed with the city in March 2009, when Mayor Michael Pavia''s administration took office and re-evaluated many large-value contracts, the article stated.
"One of our commitments was to re-examine all aspects of our cost structures," said Director of Administration Fred Flynn.
"In the spirit of continuing to look at large-dollar contracts, we reassessed the ones with [AFB Construction]," Flynn added.
"We were very pleased with the responsiveness and the resource commitments that Mr. Barbarotta and AFB continue to make on behalf of providing services to the city," Flynn noted.
"They have a management contract for both the parks and city facilities and they do a very good job," Flynn concluded.
