Washington County recently settled a lawsuit that was brought against it alleging that the county had acted improperly in awarding three construction projects. The lawsuit arose when various contractors were upset that Washington County did not open up three major construction projects to bidding and instead awarded all three contracts to one contractor through a "design-build" process. The county was sued and alleged to have taken part in improper contract dealings. Under the terms of the settlement, the contractor that was awarded the contracts may finish and be paid for the one project that is substantially complete already, but the other two projects, which have not been started yet, must be put out for open bidding. Under the terms of the settlement, Washington County admitted to no wrong dealings.
