Dusten Rolando explained that he had been in contact with the I.D.O.T. and other counties about what options are available. John Murray present at 10:01 AM. Dusten Rolando said we have a couple of different options. It is a signed contract and the County could hold the contractor to the terms of it. The other option is to work with the contractor because of the shortage of cement and adjust the contract terms to delay the paving until next year. It was the consensus of the Board to have Croell, Inc. submit a written request for a change in project scope and timeline of completion. This should include documentation on the reason why the request and provide an updated schedule for completion in 2020.
