Officials were hoping the new golf course community building would be finished by now.
Not so fast.
Harry Burgess, the county administrator, released a statement Wednesday, saying the contract with the contractor, Gerald R, Martin, has been formally terminated.
Construction activities have been suspended.
The rest of the statement read, “at the request of the contractor, the county will enter into public works mediation to address the situation later this month. The county moved to end the contract after the project manager became concerned about an apparent lack of progress being made on the building. The contractor vacated the work site approximately three weeks ago.
“An outstanding construction item involving exterior building lighting as well as an ADA compliance issue with one of the restrooms has resulted in the county being unable to obtain a certificate of occupancy. In addition to addressing these items, the scope of work requires the former Pro Shop adjacent to the building to be demolished and cleared to allow construction of additional parking.
“The county is evaluating the most cost effective method to finish the project, seeking to balance the needs of the community against the preservation of the project budget and the taxpayer’s investment.
