Council Beiecls
Claims Main!
Avenue B Sewer
Disposal of business in respect
to the Avenue B sewer held the
spotlight at Tuesday night’s ses
sion of the Kennewick city coun
cil. ' A resolution was adopted to
reject all claims filed with the
city arising ”out of the construc
tion work. This was done on the
grounds that the .claims are cov
ered by the contractor’s liability
and property .damage insurance
or by his performance bonds tiled
‘by his surety. Claims are not
Irecognized as the city's liability.
‘_Work on the sewer itself has
been completed and the line is in
’operation. However, a' consider
iablie ”amount via: '3lqu work:
an e repa g ashington‘
‘street has not been done. The
‘city will inform the surety com-‘
‘pany of the present status of the
job and it is expected that ad
justmentwillbemadesoon., i
‘ Several residents of the area
traversed by the sewer visited the
council and pointed out that they
would not be able to proceed
with their spring farming until
the area is cleaned up rocks
and fences repaired. A_ section
of the main irrigation pipe serv
ing that region has not been re
placed and thiswillbe necessary
before water can be supplied.
The. city intends to withhold
any further cuts on the con
tract until aB claims for damages
or materials have been satisfied;
The repaving of Washington street
will necasarily be delayed until
the ground has had sullc‘ient time

will require that the street he

‘of the job. However, that time
expired on March-18. It was re
ported that no work had been
done since March 12.
Because some minor technicali
ties arose in the legal description
of the property involved in tak
ing Green Homes and Nob Hill
into the city the council was forc
ed to delay until the next regular
meeting final passage on the en
abling ordinance.
Action was taken to vacate the
right of way for‘ Avenue A be

was done contingent upon the
provision for right of way for
