G&N Construction: G&N continues to receive bills for the elevator project. Due to the fact that the elevator company did not comply with deadlines, G&N submitted payment, minus penalties.

After discussion and review of the contract, the Commissioners and Tom P. agreed to assist G&N to resolve this.

He feels he should have received a notice from Register of Deeds stating that a Lien would be filed.
It was explained to Mr. Lieberman that it is not the responsibility of the Register of Deeds to send notice of a Lien request. It is the responsibility of the Register of Deeds to verify all the correct and complete paperwork is in order before a Lien is filed.

Construction of the System has been completed and would now transition to the OM&R phase.
OM&R are requesting input about the proposed action and information or concerns you may have regarding potential project effects.
