LIRR will hold an informational event April 19th for businesses interested in providing goods and services for the second track services. This will be held at Suffolk County Community College. Sparing no expense the event is aimed at minority and women-owned small businesses. This is how half the MTA projects become boondoggles mired in all sorts of problems. You would think the MTA has learned by now awarding to the lowest bidder and what it cost the taxpayer in the long run having to redo the work. This event is also held in conjunction with Suffolk County.
