Campbell continues to challenge $15K AT&T bill
By jeanne starmack
The Campbell law director is still investigating whether the city owes AT&T $15,000 the company is trying to collect.
City officials originally said it appeared a contract with AT&T was terminated early by former finance director Sherman Miles, and the company was trying to collect the balance.
The 2-year contract was for a trunk line that connects extensions at the city building.
Officials said Miles would not have the authority to terminate a contract on his own and enter into another contract, which the city did with Delta Telecom.
But Miles said this week that he did not terminate the contract. He said the contract was supposed to be renewed in November 2010, and he tried to to do that but never got a response from the company.
Miles also said he did not enter into the contract with Delta Telecom on his own. He said the city’s board of control, which law director Brian Macala described as the city’s “contract authority,” did approve the Delta Telecom contract before it went into effect in July 2011.
