  • The Wellington Advertiser - Township to assume Rockwood subdivision after lengthy process
    letter of credit from the developer Councillor Doug Breen suggested there must be a number between 15 000 and 210 000 that would satisfy township staff though Robertson was hesitant to provide an exact figure Mayor Chris White said the township has a responsibility to taxpayers to assume a development that is in good shape but council has also has to be reasonable in its request of the developer The mayor suggested 50 000 to correct the remaining deficiencies and Robertson agreed to that figure However Seaton Group vice president Jeremy Grant said 15 000 should be enough to complete the outstanding work I actually thought that was high he said Grant told council he would have had his contractor Drexler Construction complete the work at a fraction of the 15 000 if he had received Burns list before December Noting the subdivision has been in the works for almost two decades Grant added it s time for the township to assume ownership of the project which is nearly 100 completed White said the township could withhold 50 000 from the Seaton Group in addition to the 10 000 deposit and return any leftover funds to the company We will fix this stuff White said explaining it will be up to township officials to address and complete the work Council unanimously passed a resolution to assume phase three of the subdivision provided there are no legal issues and also to retain 60 000 total from the company December 30 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must
