As the City nears a decision on just how to handle court renovations, it's interesting to note the city has had more trouble with consulting engineers to the point the firm handling design of courtrooms for two years was fired this summer for poor performance and the local firm of Bernier Carr is now being hired to take over he work.
That's the take away from this story today.
The City has also had problems with the firm handling the Fairgrounds renovation and there is a current dispute over roof vents. Cost overruns on Factory Street have also frustrated lawmakers.
The courtroom renovations were required by the state, which funds city court operation in exchange for the city providing a venue.
Endless back and forth over how to configure the first floor has led to current consideration of choosing a new site entirely.
It was frustrating when I was there and I thought it was resolved two years ago, and it has to be frustrating for the current Council the matter continues to fester.
