N.O. firm makes another rejected low bid in Monroe

For a second time, a New Orleans-based firm was low bidder on a project in Monroe, but failed to get the contract.

Lloyd P. Broussard, president of minority-owned EnviroTech Services LLC, says he expects to be back in court over the company's $2.2 million bid to build the Northeast Louisiana African-American Heritage Museum.

The company lost a state district court lawsuit after it submitted the low bid on a $35 million airport contract but was rejected because the company that wrote its bid bond was not licensed in Louisiana.

New Orleans architect Cliff James, in charge of the museum project, said EnviroTech's bid was not "responsive," but wouldn't say why.
