Streetsboro City Council is increasing the city’s contingency by $20,000 to $95,000 after design errors in a new fire station project, reports Record-Courier.
The project manager told fire officials that $20,000 should be enough to cover any issues.
Some city officials expressed frustration that some of the items the city has had to pay for, including the fact that the the shower area was planned to be built with drywall.
Another official expressed concern that the contingency is not enough. He said that usual contingencies amounted to 10% of the project’s cost.
Officials are also hopeful there will not be more problems.
