Which is it, Deaf Gahan? Is INDOT fining E&B Paving or is the city?


Obviously Deaf Gahan wants you to think he’s losing sleep safeguarding your money, and yes, the Green Mouse is told that the contractor on the Market Street beautification project has also been threatened lest it not be completed on time for the requisite campaign photo-ops.

The problem: What Deaf’s propaganda minions are saying contradicts what his own city engineer told the Bored of Works.

Gahan predictably credits himself here:

Grant Line Road Contractor Fined $3000 Per Day for Missed Schedule

The contractor completing the Grant Line Road Improvement Project is currently being fined by the city $3000 per day for failing to meet the scheduled completion date. The contractual date for completion of the project was June 18, 2019. Beginning June 19, the city has fined the contractor $3000 per day for failing to complete the project, per contractual agreements. Starting August 18th, if the project is still not completed, fines are increased to $5000/day.

Since these fines have been initiated, the city has seen increased activity from the contractor and crews along Grant Line Road. “We will continue to insist on a timely completion of the work, and ensure that the work is of the highest quality,” stated Mayor Jeff Gahan.

But Larry Summers did not even mention Dear Leader’s name here:

Grant Line Road contractor being fined, by Chris Morris

NEW ALBANY — It looks like the Grant Line Road project won’t be finished until mid-November.

But the contractor is being strongly encouraged to get it done faster.

City engineer Larry Summers told the New Albany Board of Public Works & Safety Tuesday that E&B Paving is being fined $3,000 a day by the Indiana Department of Transportation for not having the project finished by the scheduled completion date.

Someone’s fudging, eh?
