Meter on Monroe Airport Runs – Another $1/4 Million Adder, Another Six Months to Schedule

The agenda for tonight’s City Council Meeting in Monroe has this little item:

5. (a) Adopt Resolution authorizing James E. Mayo, Mayor to execute a Change Order Number 6 to Contract Number 937-01-0026 (Airport Terminal Improvements) between the City of Monroe and Lincoln Builders of Ruston, Inc., for an increase in the contract amount of $211,428.19 and an additional 162 days to contract time of said project and further providing with respect thereto.

This is change order number six. Looks like we need to go back and total it all up and see how much money we talking about.

LPNO has posted several stories on the controversial Monroe Airport project.

    New terminal or not, I’m still driving to Jackson if the tickets there are half Monroe’s and it’s my money.
    Expense-account trips, Monroe every time.
