|LV Caterer's $5 Special|
Is the rumor true?
According to Executive John Stoffa, no. "They'll be between $9 and $10," he joked.
"I don't know how that rumor got out," he said on Friday, when he announced that a contract has been awarded to Lehigh Valley Caterers, a full service catering company located at 2260 Corriere Road in Easton.
Procurement officer Kathy Anderson, who served on the committee recommending LV Catering, stated that cost to County employees was one of its biggest concerns.
"We asked them to keep it at a reasonable cost, hopefully $5 and below for a special every day, breakfast sandwiches between $1 and $3.50, so we felt that these people were the best fit for the County, and that was one of our criteria - the pricing."
Other persons who served on this selection committee include Deputy Director of Administration Tom Harp, Court Administrator Jim Onembo, Council member Peg Ferraro, Public Works worker Garry Haas, Personnel Analyst Chris Moakley and Procurement Manager Terry Beidelman.
