Most of you are aware the Board of Selectmen put in a claim on the performance bond for TLT, the general contractor for the Middle School/High School Building Project. This performance bond is held by Western Surety out of Chicago, IL. Weston Surety has hired Vertex Engineering to meet with the town's project manager, Strategic Business Solutions, as well as TLT. Western Surety intends to produce a report within the next few weeks as to how they wish to proceed with this project. I will keep you up-to-date with the results of this report.
As far as progress made, the Middle School/ High School courtyard is nearing completion. The pavers are installed and the concrete has been poured within the courtyard. TLT is installing the black paper covering the Tyvek in the courtyard. This is necessary for the panel installation. The hydro seeding of the site is complete but it needs watering to survive. The auditorium is moving forward slowly and concrete was scheduled to be poured today.
Currently, the biggest issue we are dealing with is the direct payment from the town to the subcontractors.
I will continue to update the project through this site.
