Council Delaying Library Payment

Posted: Friday, November 20th, 2009 at 6:45 am

Washington City Councilors are delaying payment to an architectural firm that they worked with on the new library project. A leak in the roof was noticed around the time of the facility’s grand opening. First Ward Council member Bob Shepherd this week said he wasn’t comfortable making the roughly $9,000 payment until the problem had been resolved. City Administrator Dave Plymann says the roofing contractor is working to fix the situation. The payment will be up for approval at the next city council meeting.
