Montco Prison Expansion Project Moving Forward

montco_courthouseMontgomery County officials are reviewing bids for a new minimum-security building on the grounds of the county prison in Eagleville. They received and opened them earlier this month, and the county commissioners hired the Philadelphia law firm of Saul-Ewing as special counsel to help them through a potential minefield of litigation.  Deputy Chief Operating Officer Jim Maza says they need the firm’s expertise in large construction projects to avoid the problems the county had the last time it expanded the prison.

“The last prison project that Montgomery County did was not the best evidence of good government.  We had people going to prison, we had problems with the contracting, we had terminations, we had lawsuits, we had arbitrations.  This time we want to do it different.”

Maza says the special counsel’s main job is to enforce remedies as soon as possible if any contractors should deviate from the promises made.  Commissioners Chairman Jim Matthews says the decision to hire the firm was not made lightly.

“We don’t, on the drop of a dime, go out and hire outside expertise and counsel. We use the facilities we have, but you also need to know your limitations, and something as exacting as this could be in dealing with responsible contracting specifications.  With building specifications themselves for a multi, multi-million-dollar project, I feel I know my limitations.”

Matthews says the $890 million addition to the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia has gone ahead flawlessly under the direction of Saul-Ewing.  The new building should ease prison overcrowding.

WNPV AM 1440 Manta's "Marketing Tip of the Day" this morning reminds us that "Some things never change. Case in point: word-of-mouth marketing. There's little question that consumers are more likely to trust a friend's recommendation than something coming directly from a company. This kind of influence is difficult—if not impossible—to purchase, but it doesn't have to only come by accident." Did you know that radio advertising is "controllable" word-of-mouth? When the public talks about you, you never know if they'll be saying something good or something bad ... it's out of your control! But when your good friends on the radio talk about you ... in the form of helpful, informative commercials ... you control the message! Put that controllable word-of-mouth advertising to work for you!
