Ace local government reporter Morgan Theophil requested a copy of the scope of service that Victoria County says served as a contractor's guide after Hurricane Harvey damaged some of its buildings.
Theophil requested the document after some questioned the county's deference to this contractor and whether it spent money on work that was actually performed.
This is a document that Commissioner Gary Burns has said he has never seen. It is more than 300 pages, and the Victoria Advocate could sure use its readers' help analyzing it.
We realize our readers are a diverse bunch and may glean something from this document we do not. Maybe you work in construction or insurance. Maybe you're a math whiz.
Readers may also come up with questions our reporters have not yet thought to ask county officials.
