The City Of Salisbury Awarded More Than $2 Million In Settlement

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A settlement today for two million dollars should be the last in the City of Salisbury's wastewater treatment plant upgrade nightmare. A verdict has been released in the case of the City of Salisbury vs. Construction Dynamics Group, Inc.

The jury verdict awarded the City of Salisbury $1,968,417.43. Construction Dynamics also has to pay the city $162,225.00, because of improper billing, making the total amount coming back to the city, $2,130,642.43.

Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton released a statement saying "this verdict brings a multi-year litigation regarding the Waste Water Treatment Plant construction to conclusion. The City was represented by Howard Goldberg, Paul Wilber and Chris Mason during this litigation."

Teresa Gardner, Director of Salisbury Public Works said "this brings closure to a very trying period for the City and it allows us to start a new path forward."

The Mayor made clear that the money will be used to help pay for upgrades of the Waste Water Treatment Plant, which will benefit the City.

The project cost the City $40 million, the state paid an additional 44 million. Between Wednesday's construction group settlement and a $10 million settlement with the engineering firm, the city recouped $12 million. But they still have to pay off the remaining $28 million dollars on the project loan.

Mayor Ireton says now that this settlement is final, the city and state can now focus on their new plan for the wastewater treatment plant, with an eye on watershed nitrogen levels.
