Read city contracts online

August 5, 2011

By Staff

City contracts are now available on the city’s website, www.ci.newcastle.wa.us.

City staff members have created electronic copies of contracts that were signed in 2011, and they are available under the “City Records” tab on the site’s homepage.

City Manager Rob Wyman said the idea came after the city received several inquiries about its contracts. He said posting copies of contracts online was a simple task that made sense.

In addition to being helpful to residents, he said city employees have found the electronic copies helpful.

Residents can expect to see new contracts posted on the city’s website, although contracts from before 2011 will not be uploaded, because many old contracts have expired.

Students win awards for appliance repair

Renton Technical College students Sergiu Midrigan and Sean Johnson won gold medals at the National Skills USA Competition and Leadership Conference in Kansas City, Mo., in June.

Midrigan, a student in major appliance repair and technology, competed against eight other students from across the country, diagnosing problems of seven appliances, completing tests on technical skills and customer relations, and completing an employability interview.

Johnson, a student in precision machining, competed against 27 other students in a test of manual lathe and mill skills. He was also tested on blueprint reading, inspections, and quality control and general machining knowledge.
