Stewart Council again expresses dissatisfaction with 2012 project

The Stewart City Council continued Monday night to express dissatisfaction with the quality of work on its 2012-13 street and utility improvement project.
Mayor Jason Peirce launched the issue as the City Council considered pay requests for the project.
Peirce said the project is still not completely finished, and the City Council has set more than one deadline and is still getting requests for extensions on the project.
“Maybe we should pay them the way the do their work,” commented Peirce.
Engineer Andy Kehren of Bolton & Menk said the city is contractually bound to pay its bills.
But the city also is withholding $140,000 in a contingency fund and has the authority to assess liquidated damages against the contractor.
