Why is it that Joe Michaelangelo doesn't seem to give clear, concise answers to the questions that were asked of him?

Sounds like the performance based contract idea was well thought out 2 years prior and well presented by a company that worked for a year designing the project (at no cost). Salamone just rejected the idea in their report without anyone giving specifics as to why they rejected it.
Seems the PBC needs to be more open to performance based contracting and shouldn't have approved Salamone's report.
Joe M. says performance based contracting limits you to one vendor, but it seems to me that our PBC is more interested in steering projects towards certain vendors rather than doing what's in the best interest of the town as a whole...that is trying to save the town money in the long run.
