After cost delays, Derry resumes transfer station project
The town is searching for a company to award the contract for the approximately $3 million project, said Public Works Director Michael Fowler.
Earlier this year, the project was delayed after costs increased, with estimates ranging from $4.5 million to $6 million. Increased costs for site work and other factors pushed the project over budget, Fowler said.
“In this case, I felt it was prudent to take a step back and not irresponsibly charge into project that was at least on the surface being represented as over budget—I would never do that,” he said.
The initial timetable called for completing the facility by Thanksgiving; it is now set to be completed by October 2015, he said.
