Settlement reached over leaky Myrtle Creek gym
Question of the Day
ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) - The South Umpqua School District has received a $275,000 settlement in its lawsuit against the architect and contractor responsible for a middle school gymnasium that needs repairs.
Officials at Coffenberry Middle School in Myrtle Creek say water has been leaking into the building that opened in 2008, causing damage that would worsen over time.
The suit alleged numerous building defects were caused by Eugene contractor Essex General Construction Inc. The architect, Pinnacle Western Inc. of Roseburg, was named a co-defendant.
Essex denied the allegations and filed a cross complaint against six subcontractors.
The Roseburg News-Review reports (http://is.gd/veN6CF ) all the parties reached a settlement that was finalized Monday.
An attorney for the contractor says the company believes it built a good gym.
