FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The city of Fort Wayne is looking at possibly re-working the contract for riverfront development phases two and three.

Friday, the city announced the contract with David Rubin Land Collective to design the future phases of the riverfront.

The contract was scheduled to be introduced Monday for city council approval.

However, the contract was pulled from the agenda after councilman John Crawford suggested the contract might be illegal.

A city ordinance specifies professional services such as architecture and engineering must be open to bids, but the city doesn't have to use the lowest bidder.

City spokesman John Perlich told FOX 55 the contract was withdrawn so the city can address those concerns.
