Scott County PSWD 4: District terminates contract

Sunday, June 13, 2010

BENTON -- Public Water Supply District of Scott County, Missouri, Number 4 has terminated the contract with the company hired to lay the water district's pipes.

The water district awarded the contract to install its water distribution system to Municipal Construction, Inc. of Goodrich, Mich., in 2009.

"Several months ago, the contractor ceased substantial performance under the contract, and the District notified Municipal of its default under that contract, which Municipal failed to cure, or develop a plan to cure, in accordance with the contract," said Jim Hux, attorney for the water district. "As a result, the District, regrettably, had to notify Municipal Construction, Inc. and its bonding company that it was terminating Municipal Construction Inc.'s contract."
