PETERSBURG – The rejection of the only bid to provide lights for baseball fields at Amanda’s Field got heated last week, as two Upper Township committeemen argued over why the bid was being discarded and the project had to be re-bid.

Mayor Richard Palombo said the bid process was tainted when Committeeman Tony Inserra talked with a representative of a company that took out a bid package on the project. A representative from the company later said they did not bid because they could not meet a price they were told by someone with the township, according to township engineer Paul Dietrich.
