LAKE WALES – A former mayor is challenging the way the City of Lake Wales is bidding out some of its construction projects. Mike Carter said it appears that the city is violating its own ordinances by not putting projects that cost over $35,000 out to competitive bid. City officials, including attorney Chuck Galloway, maintain that is not the case, however.
