Despite racially charged demands for more time from a longtime Your Black Muslim Bakery associate and his supporters, the BART board of directors voted Thursday to give a lighting-improvement contract to another firm.
Nedir Bey, a longtime Your Black Muslim Bakery associate with a checkered past in handling public money, lost a BART lighting-improvement contract worth up to $1 million when he failed to provide certain documents by a Thursday-evening deadline.
BART has inked a half-million dollar contract — with options to double it later — with a longtime Your Black Muslim Bakery associate who has a checkered past in dealing with public money. But the joint venture led by Nedir Bey’s Solar Eclipse Group was unable to provide required insurance, bond and license documentation by last Friday’s deadline, so the contract includes a clause that it will become effective only if Bey produces those documents by the close of business Wednesday.
