Confusion about fire station conditions cause of contractor upcharge
RIVERSIDE – The Village Board of Trustees approved a $1,797 additional payment to CCI Flooring at its public meeting Thursday night to cover extra work the contractors were required to perform because of conditions at Riverside Fire Station One.
The village had agreed to pay the company $24,148 to refinish the station’s floors, but upon beginning the job, CCI Flooring representatives discovered there were three sections of concrete flooring that needed to be repaired before they could begin the refinishing and that the station’s electrical system was not powerful enough to accomodate the contractor’s equipment. As a result of the substandard electricity, CCI had to rent generators.
Village Trustee Joseph Ballerine said he understood why CCI needed extra money to repair the floor, but questioned how CCI didn’t know their equipment wouldn’t work in the fire station before signing the contract.
