Recent Texas Attorney General Opinions of Interest to Cities

Note:  Included opinions are from March 11 through April 10, 2019.

KP-0246 (Purchasing): Depending on the facts, a court could conclude that an airport operations contract meets the requirements of Transportation Code Section 22.020 and is therefore not subject to the competitive bidding requirement of Local Government Code Section 262.023(a). Even if an airport operations contract does not fall within Transportation Code Section 22.020, it could be eligible for exemption by the commissioners court from competitive bidding pursuant to Section 262.024(a)(4) as a purchase for a personal service if the contract requires a particular, named individual to perform the services.
