The Alton City Council Committee of the Whole has voted to award D&D Tire Service of South Roxana a pair of contracts for tire service.  The young company submitted the winning bid for car & truck tire service as well as service calls for tire work and heavy equipment tire service for the various city departments. 

Alderman Gary Fleming has his doubts about sending this contract out of town.

Fred’s Towing of Alton held the most recent contract, which expired last summer, and have continued to do the work under the terms of the old contract until the new one is awarded.  Alderman David Boulds joined Fleming in his opposition to awarding D& D the contract, but the measure passed 5-2.  It must still meet with full council approval tomorrow night before the decision is made final.
