KETCHIKAN- The City of Ketchikan has to fork over $825,000 to a Juneau construction firm after the city ended a project early.
The agreement was accepted July 10, according to court documents.
Miller Construction Co. sued for the city's alleged failure to pay termination costs related to a reconstruction project.
Miller won the nearly $5 million contract in 2011. The city claimed the company was slow and the work not acceptable. The contract was terminated and the project rebid.
Construction company president Terry Miller said he wasn't satisfied with the settlement, which was about $125,000 less than what they sought. But he said it was prudent to end the legal process.
City Manager Lew Williams III said there was no winner in the process.
