It’s all ‘fine’
Water treatment project nearing completion
PRINCETON — Princeton’s new water treatment plant is “substantially completed” and should be in full operation within the next few weeks.
At this week’s Princeton City Council meeting, Commissioner Joel Quiram talked about additional financial considerations for the $21 million project, saying the Farnsworth Group engineering firm wants to bill the city an additional $169,000 for its extended services in overseeing the project, which had been scheduled to be completed last May.
The Vissering Construction Co., which is building the plant, can be fined $1,500 a day for liquidating damages in missing last spring’s completion date, which would amount to about $189,000 in fines for the city, Quiram said. That money from Vissering could be used to pay Farnsworth Group, resulting in no additional cost to the taxpayers, he said.
