Nashua adopts ordinance to give local businesses an advantage

Nashua Telegraph - Wed, 06/18/2014 - 01:05

NASHUA – It was nearly 10 years ago that Mike Francoeur lost a bid to supply Nashua High School North with jerseys for the track and field program, but Francoeur remembers the details like it was yesterday. Nashua had just opened its new high school, and Francoeur, owner of M&N Sports on Bridge Street, was in the hunt to supply the athletic programs with gear for the fall, winter and spring seasons. Francoeur won a contract worth $16,000 to outfit the school’s football team, but when the bids were opened to provide uniforms for the track and field and cross country programs, a company out of Boston beat him by 16 cents. The sting of losing the job to an out-of-state firm still lingers. But for Francoeur and other local business owners, a new measure passed last week by Nashua’s Board of Aldermen could help give them the edge when it comes to awarding city business in the future. Aldermen passed a measure Tuesday that creates a preference for giving contracts and jobs to local businesses when they’re offering a price that’s close to a competitor without any substantial presence in Nashua. The ordinance was put forward by Ward 9 Alderman Ken Siegel, who said previously that M&N’s experience in the bidding process was one of the factors that inspired him to pen the legislation. After watching a contract slip away by a margin of mere pennies, Francoeur said he was pleased to see an ordinance pass that will give city officials more leeway to support local businesses. “It’s all people that work here in the community,” he said. “They spend their money in the community. It’s jobs for people in the community, the whole bit.” The ordinance applies to all requests for bids, proposals or quotes for the purchase of goods or services.

Pools opening to the public in Nashua on Saturday

Nashua Telegraph - Wed, 06/18/2014 - 01:05

NASHUA – School is winding down, the weather is heating up, and in pockets across the city, public works employees are getting Nashua’s municipal swimming pools ready to open to the public. Nashua’s three full-size public swimming pools will open for the season Saturday. Nashua also operates two wading pools next to Fairgrounds Elementary School and in Greeley Park, as well as a splash pad on National Street. Each swimming pool is staffed by a supervisor, head guard, two swim instructors and three or four lifeguards, along with a maintenance person. Once again this year, the city will host swimming lessons throughout the summer for adults and children ages 4 and older, as well as general swim periods seven days a week. The first session of swimming lessons begins Monday morning. Another popular feature returning this year is the city’s Dive-In Movies. The evening events allow children to watch a movie projected on a large screen. This year, the first Dive-In Movie will be screened at 8 p.m.

Dave Yakuboff – town official, family man, community advocate, cigar aficionado – remembered at Tuesday funeral

Nashua Telegraph - Wed, 06/18/2014 - 01:04

MERRIMACK – A man whose love for cigars ranked a close third behind his love for his family and community, Dave Yakuboff Sr. probably never imagined the day would come that he’d willingly give away every stogie in his house. But that day did come, on a Fourth of July more than a dozen years ago, when Yakuboff lost what seemed a sure bet: That longtime friend Darryl Rose couldn’t possibly score a ringer on his last toss in a very close game of horseshoes. Tuesday morning, Rose was one of nearly 200 family members, friends and associates of Yakuboff who gathered at Our Lady of Mercy Church to remember the Merrimack Town Council chairman and popular businessman and community advocate who collapsed and died June 11 at his Deerwood Drive home,. Although transferring his entire stock of beloved cigars to Rose likely pained Yakuboff greatly, he rejected Rose’s offer to call off the wager. “Nope. A bet’s a bet,” Rose remembers him saying. Yakuboff was already celebrating his team’s victory, Rose recalled, even though Rose had one toss remaining in the neck-and-neck match.
