If they are paying you your rate, WTF do you care if its teaching someone or coding? Do you honestly believe that your all that? Get over yourself, and do your job. Last job I quit, they called me for a year with questions. Simple shit, as long as it was less than an hour I didn't even charge them.

I switch to Linux in 1993 because Windows was an unstable disaster. Now I am so comfortable with Linux I could never change, even if Windows became a better solution. So if I had to be honest I would have to admit that I am a Linux guy and will never switch for the same reasons that most Windows guys would never consider Linux. Its just inside their comfort zone.

Your town gave them contract, they are trying to change the terms after the fact. Inform them this is unacceptable, and will require a renegotiation in their contract. They will cave in instantly, if they lose the contract for your town it will be a huge loss to them. Walk down the hall and inform the council about this.
