I agree with most everything on here, but also think that whoever is managing the project for the City should take some responsibility. The last plan we had done with a consultant came in with a draft plan that they were claiming was 80-85% complete. They sent us the plan, we reviewed it in house, and called the consultant in for a face to face meeting. We made it clear that our proposal, scope of work, and fee did not warrant a junk plan that they were circulating to every muni they were working with at the time. We made it very clear to their management that if we saw another draft like this that we would not being sending any payment and would pursue terminating the contract. Needless to say, the next draft was substantially better tailored to our community.
