Leelanau County nears gov't building fix

SUTTONS BAY — Leelanau County is close to curing construction problems with its government center.

The county threatened a lawsuit against construction company Devere Construction in January, when officials claimed the company is responsible for improperly installed insulation in soffit and attic areas of the government center. Administrator Chet Janik said the insulation flaw caused significant ice buildups on the roof of the $10.6 million edifice on M-204.

Devere Vice President Donald Denomme Jr. wrote to the county March 8, and said the company is working with county officials to fix the problem.

"This letter is intended to confirm our collective and general agreement with the proposed scope of work that you have outlined to address the issues," Denomme wrote.

Janik said he's optimistic the problem will be fixed soon.

"We are making progress," Janik said. "It's difficult to identify the scope of work until Spring time. We have not pursued any legal options. We reserve the right to pursue our legal options."
