Lakewood Ranch districts seek to have lawsuit tossed

Supervisors at Lakewood Ranch are continuing to deal with the fallout of a lawsuit alleging a Sunshine Law violation that threw a monkey wrench into the bid process for a landscape maintenance contract.

Last month, supervisors agreed to throw out all the bids for a three-year contract and start over after Garden Leaders, the company that currently has the contract, filed the lawsuit.

The Garden Leaders’ complaint revolves around Town Hall staff members who ranked bids prior to presentation to supervisors.

Tuesday, during an agenda workshop meeting at Town Hall, Inter-District Authority attorney Scott Rudacille advised that a motion has been filed to dismiss the Garden Leaders lawsuit.

He offered no forecast on when a ruling might be forthcoming on the motion.
