Deerfield-News.com-Deerfield Beach, Fl- This year on our annual request for public records to establish the cost of Deerfield’s holiday display we see what may be a potential increase from last year. While we await the actual invoice, the city has sent a copy of the no Bid Contract which is renewable. The city by resolution has given permission to spend up to 113,000+ to Brandano Displays Inc. a Margate based company. Below is the agreement which would allow Brandano to charge the city of Deerfield Beach up to $113,000. While the displays are magnificent one has to question is “Brandano” the only company in America that can provide this service to Deerfield Beach and why are there no bids?
