I see in tonight’s local “News” paper that the school board has approved Havre High School roof repairs to the tune of $974,330. Approximately $358,000 of this amount is to rectify crappy workmanship from the original contract. Low bidder Talcott Construction surprisingly came in nearly a quarter of a million dollars under the prices offered by the next bidders.
Either some contractors have an obscene profit margin or Mr. Talcott has one darn efficient operation. I wonder if anyone is going to bother to oversee this project and make a few inspections to avoid another calamity or if the taxpayers are going to be on their own again like last time?
