Rail car issue resurfaces; Board votes to revise contract

UPDATE, 3:45: The Board voted unanimously to accept Metro CEO Art Leahy’s recommendations on some changes to the contract.

The focus of today’s Board meeting is the long-range plan. But the Board will also — once again, with feeling — revisit the issue of a contract with the rail car builder AnsaldoBreda.

The Board approved a contract with Breda at last month’s meeting, but the contract has yet to be signed because of some outstanding issues. You can read about them in this memo.

In the memo, Metro CEO Art Leahy outlines some changes to the contract and recommends that the Board approve the contract with those revisions.
