Contractor building KCLS library has check out | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

"I don’t now who is overseeing this job but in my opinion they should be fired!"

Man, why can’t the city build a library right and on time?

First off both are butt ugly. I would have been happier just renovating the two.

As for the Highlands one, the contractor is responsible for the broken windows. He is or should have been required to deliver the building as designed.

I am a contractor and am required by the state to be bonded and have insurance to cover such things.

Second, when the windows were broken, the building was far from completed.

The siding was not on and there was still concrete form work undone on the back of the building and the sidewalks were not even started.

As for the power not being on, if he would have ordered the power installed in a timely manner, it would have been turned on in time. And by the way, it has been on for sometime as the lights have been on inside.

There is still lots of work outside to be completed and you don’t need the power on for that. All work stopped after the broken windows for months.

Seems to me as he had other more pressing things to do since whoever is overseeing the work let him off the hook for the delivery date.

I don’t now who is overseeing this job but in my opinion they should be fired!

Michael Allison,
Renton Highlands
