Do you wonder what the SR2O proposal was? Here it is

From Open Records Request. (33 pages may take a few minutes to load)

Wanted to add some comments about this. What's interesting about this, among other things, is that this template is essentially an instruction document to tell a government entity what to do to get their company stuff pushed through, from cradle to grave. You can see where it refers to the city, so of course the county attorney would have to use his search and replace in his word processor to put in county. Even more compelling is that the RFP (Request for Proposal) ia also spelled out in detail, and I suspect written in such a way that oNLY SR20 would have been able to fit the bill. I know this type of thing is pretty typical at the state and local government level, ie, lobbyists representing companies pushing some agenda giving the exact bill text to the elected official voting for it, so not surprised exactly to see the same thing happening here. But I dont LIKE that happening at the state and federal level. You know how sometimes you find out that the people you elected to represent you don't even read the bills or don't think they have time or the text is so humongous that if they DID decide to read it, they'd have to delay the vote a few weeks (really, not such a bad idea, eh?).

I'm saying that instead of using the template that some business has as their agenda to get EXACTLY what they want, what's wrong with the people we ELECTED writing up FIRST what WE want and then doing an RFP from THAT?
