Policy requires a bidding process only for purchases of more than 25-thousand dollars and quotes for those of ten to 25-thousand.

The city says Al Weigel did not get quotes. Weigel tells the Forum; all the purchases were less than ten thousand dollars, so quotes were not needed.

The city may hire an independent firm to investigate.
