School Board Extends Middle School Construction Completion Date to Nov. 26

The Los Alamos School Board held a Special Board meeting Thursday. Board President Jim Hall was absent. Board Vice-president Judy Bjarke-McKenzie participated via telephone. Dave Wharram of Gerald Martin, who serves as the owner representative for the Los Alamos Middle School construction project, briefed the Los Alamos School Board on the progress of the final phase of construction by McCarthy Building Companies. The Board voted unanimously to a material change request, extending the construction completion date to Nov. 26, as previously discussed during an Aug. 23 meeting. Wharram said he did not think the project would be finished by the Nov. 26 date, however the board did not feel more time was warranted. McCarthy could be facing penalties of approximately $1,500 per day, beginning Nov. 27, if construction is not completed, Wharram said. Photo by Bonnie J. Gordon/
