McCourt mulls cleaning contract with out of towners

Cedar Hill firm up for $133K custodial contract

Waco – James Enterprises is a Cedar Hill outfit that cleans offices and restrooms in the courthouse complex for $133,000 per year.

The McLennan County Commissioners' Court will vote on whether to extend the contract on a non-competitive basis for another year in their regular Tuesday session.

At $.078 per square foot, the out of town firm will add some additional offices and restrooms, a new courtroom and an agricultural service center for a total of nearly $12,000 per month – with no other bidders invited or informed the contract was up for bidding.

The owner of one local janitorial service firm contacted by The Legendary said he would be proud to bid on the business if only given the chance.
