Brentwood facility project cost could increase

Change order items associated with the construction of a public works facility in Brentwood would add $191,581 to the project cost.

Brentwood borough council is scheduled to vote on Tuesday on 13 change order items. The project cost will total $1.51 million if all of the items are approved, which still is half a million dollars less than the borough budgeted for it, said George Zboyovsky, borough manager.

Councilman Pasquale “Pat” Carnevale was vocal at the March 19 council agenda meeting about the cost of the project.

“I don't mind things being done ... but gosh darnit, there's a price to it,” Carnevale said.

The borough awarded Allegheny Construction Group the $1.32 million contract for the project. Change order items include:

• A CoRay Vac heat for the rear half of the garage for $28,306.

• An additional toilet and two urinals for the facility's men's room, including partitions, screens and holders for $10,108.

• Additional power operators with remotes for overhead garage doors for $14,934.

• Paving the parking lot for $89,666.

• A truck washer for $10,000.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
