The U.S. Secret Service signed a contract last week for more than $12,000 with the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club for rental ski equipment and clothing, according to a federal government website.
However, the club doesn’t rent ski equipment and the club’s director said Friday he knew nothing of the contract.
“I see all the checks that come through here and I certainly didn’t see one from the Secret Service,” said Mark Godomsky, AVSC executive director. “For me, this is entirely out of the blue.”
The $12,208.25 contract was signed March 10 and is good through March 23, according to the Federal Procurement Data System website. The contract is for “lease or rental of equipment, clothing, individual equipment and insignia,” according to the website.
