MATTITUCK, NY — No bids were received for the mold remediation job at the Jamesport Community Center and town officials are going back to the original plan of awarding a contract for the job on an emergency basis, according to the Riverhead News-Review.
"I''m going forward with the emergency contract as we should have done on May 18," Supervisor Sean Walter said.
"All we''ve done is delay this by two weeks and allow the mold to grow for two weeks longer," Walter added.
Officials said they hoped to get the job done quickly because a number of summer programs were scheduled to start at the Jamesport Community Center in the first week in July, including a popular summer camp, the article stated.
According to the article, the Jamesport Community Center mold remediation job was originally included in a May 18 resolution that also granted an emergency mold cleanup contract for work at Town Hall.
The town also got estimates from four companies, including Servpro of Northeast Queens
, for the Jamesport Community Center job, but the lowest price came from a Middle Island company called Duraclean
, at $26,950. The other three estimates were all more than $37,000, the article noted.
