City officials have decided to continue efforts to recoup more than $140,000 they say the city had to spend as a result of a utility company’s failure to cooperate during a municipal sewer project.
The Seymour Board of Public Works and Safety agreed to take preliminary legal action Thursday against Frontier Communications, a local cable, Internet and telephone service provider, for delays the company allegedly caused in the Third Street sewer separation and improvement project, which recently wrapped up on the city’s northwest side.
Those delays resulted in increased construction and engineering costs for the city totaling $140,599.93, city attorney Rodney Farrow said.
“There were substantial delays to the project caused by Frontier not coordinating with the other utilities and contractors,” he said.
