As we’ve reported, the Summit County Council had to cope with the news that the low bid for their Jeremy/Pinebrook Roundabout project came in 24 percent over their budget.
The council decided this week to go forward with the project this year. Council Chairman Roger Armstrong said the budget news wasn’t the end of the world, but it was irritating.
Armstrong told KPCW that several factors went into the overage reported to the Council on Wednesday. The bidding process started late, since the county was held up by some right-of-way acquisition problems.
