Bank: Had Enough...Taking a Break

    You know it's rough when a bank has to close down...The Northern Federal branch on Factory Street is closing for at least two weeks as construction drones on.
    Mill Street is still closed, and people are amazed at how few people are working the project. Let's get this thing done. People's livelihoods are on the line.

It would seem that someone, somewhere screwed up with the contract. A timetable really should have been set. Just poor planning. This does seem to happen A lot around here.

I really feel for those businesses on Factory St. I haven't driven down that street since it was torn up again this spring, and only a few times over the winter. Took my cans and bottles someplace else instead of Griffs.

It's really messing up my driving routes around the city.

If Community Bank was on that street, you could bet your booty that mess would be getting addressed.

Earth to NYers. If government gets involved with the details of a project, they rarely give a crap about businesses. You see, they, like a Dannie, get paid on time every month. If it takes a year longer than planned, well who really cares? Not them. What we really need here in NY is more government. That way everybody will be freed from the burden of making a profit and everyone will get their freestuff on time.

If this is behind schedule, then your "city hired project manager" should be stepping up to the plate and demanding more manpower on site and that the work pace be stepped up!

We would not be given a pass on any contract we held if we only sent a few men to work, didn't have the needed equipment or material.

City needs to quit being so lax and put the pinch on the project manager, engineer and contractor!

Factory street is a dusty disgrace.I don't know how the few that run businesses on that street survive.
