Placeholder Image
What appears to be an attempt to put a financial squeeze on McMinnville officials will result in a slight delay in paving North Chancery Street. The project will be re-bid.During a called meeting, officials voted to re-bid the project after being told Highways Inc. may be overcharging the city in two areas — in its contract termination cost and in the cost to pave North Chancery.“When it comes to North Chancery, I do have questions that may have legal ramifications,” consulting engineer Anthony Pelham said in bringing the situation to the board’s attention.Highways Inc. was originally awarded the project to widen the street with its bid of $998,000. The contract was signed, but a notice to proceed was not given.
