Contractor comes up short on city project


by Mark Vasto
Landmark reporter

The company—Construction Solutions—chosen by Platte City to complete a window replacement project at the city’s Civic Center has apparently gone out of business, allegedly leaving a damaged roof and a string of unpaid sub-contractors in their wake, City Administrator Keith Moody said.

According to Moody, the project, which was originally estimated to cost around $75,000, is complete for the most part. All that is said to remain on the construction punch list is the replacement of three panes of glass that are broken, some roof repairs due to damage caused during the contractor’s window installation, installation of one final window and a general cleanup of the interior buildings. The city has about $15,000 in retainage fees not yet paid to the contractor.

“The city required a payment bond be issued for this work and the subcontractors have been referred to the bonding company,” Moody said in a memorandum to the Platte City Board of Aldermen. “I am working at resolving these items as well as the bonding company addressing the outstanding bills of the subcontractors.”
