He said the <br /> Committee has spent 35 to 50 hours in training, background, and <br /> education.

Paving Project Delay. <br /> Mr. Haws referred to the Bertelsen Road improvement project, and the <br /> complaints that have been raised by residents in the area on how long <br /> the project is taking. He wondered what the City could do to ensure <br /> that the problems that have arisen on this project with delays do not <br /> take place in the future on other projects. Manager said one major <br /> point on the particular project in question has been the weather. <br /> He said there are fines to the contractors that are levied but he <br /> would want to research on how far to go with those fines beyond what <br /> already is being levied. He said all of the contractors on paving <br /> projects are bonded and, if performance is bad, it is possible <br /> to order the project stopped and go through the difficult process of <br /> getting another contractor. He said that is rarely done because it is <br /> a prolonged procedure. <br />-- <br /> S<fS 8/30/78--1 <br />
