that the election is
over and everybody has had a chance to breathe, it's time to go back to
Blackhorse Rd project, a project that the public was told would be 2
took 6 weeks and still has problems. As usual, Township videos and
attached and the entire township meeting is available here is you care
the entire conversation. It is quite enlightening:
Let me start by stating that the Township used an “Engineered” drawing
public paid for that has no engineer stamp on it, that was not
even made the township do major modifications due to the design dumping
amount of water onto Rt 100, already a dangerous area on that highway.
West Vincent pay good money for worthless design work?
After D&L Construction was proven to be operating under a VOID
with a grossly undervalued Performance Bond of $10,000 (required 30% of
total amount stated by Manager Jim Wendelgass), which is in my email of
October, 2015 with video, work still progressed using D & L
right? It gets worse.
For two weeks, D & L Construction continued on the job. At the
2015 meeting, it was announced that the contract was found to be void.
Solicitor Steve Siana was paid to determine the obvious. At the
meeting is was clearly read the requirement and shown that if a
Bond was not supplied in 20 days, a requirement of the contract, the
was void. The Bond wasn't even in the Township's possession at the time
Miller claimed it was. It is on the video attached to the email from 7
The Administration decided to get telephonic bids to complete the job
they had no contracted company to complete the work. According to
Township code Section 3102 Letting of Contracts, the Township is
allowed to get
phone bids up to $19,400. Who won that bid? A company called
D&L Paving and
Excavating. Here is the conversation:
D & L Paving and Excavating, a company that Jim Wendelgass
different from D&L Construction, but he did not know who the
the company are. Here is the video.
Here are the minutes (under Blackhorse Road Construction) which show
the Township didn't believe that it was a different company. They list
winning bidder as D&L Construction, not D & L Paving
This job and the financial shuffle gets worse. Stay tuned as I continue
report this project to the end.
Thanks to the voters of West Vincent Township clearly supporting
Schneider and 2 years ago doing the same for John Jacobs, hopefully a
sweep will be made, sorting out all this mess.
