Council denies extension for Lincoln Park construction

The Glencoe City Council heard updates on the Lincoln Park construction project and considered an extension request from Duininck Brothers, the main contractor for the project.
The contractors have requested an extension to the interim completion date of Nov. 16. The project is already behind on phase one of construction, which was supposed to be completed this week. City Engineer John Rodeberg recommended that the council deny the extension. He said he did not think the company had a good reason for the extension and was not properly prioritizing the project.
“They are still not making the effort we thought they should,” Rodeberg said.
If the project goes past its planned completion date, it would cost the city $250 a day and provide further inconvenience to residents in the area. The city could enforce penalties on the company if this occurs.
Rodeberg said denying the request will provide motivation for the contractors to work more efficiently and bring more workers into the area.  
The Council agreed and denied the request. Rodeberg said the city will continue trying to lessen the inconvenience on residents in the area.
