Well, this is disappointing. I saw this on a listserv:
“Jun 23, 2008 3:00 AM (6 hrs ago) by Bill Myers, The Examiner
WASHINGTON -Construction on an $8 million senior center in Northwest has ground to a halt in a dispute over late payments, chaotic city management and a favored plumbing contractor, The Examiner has learned.
After 11 months of fighting, D.C. has terminated Garcete Construction Co.’s contract for the wellness center on the 3500 block of Georgia Avenue Northwest. The dispute, which is now headed for litigation, has stalled a decade-long plan for the facility.”
