Commissioners want more information on construction manager’s contract | The Augusta Chronicle

Several Augusta Commission members say they want more information about the city’s relationship with Heery International and its subconsultants before a vote scheduled today to extend its decade-old contract for two more years.

The city has paid Heery and its subconsultants about $9.5 million in fees over the past 10 years, with billing rates for some Heery personnel topping $200 an hour, to manage city construction projects funded by sales taxes. The contract provides for 4 percent rate increases each year.

A handful of ongoing construction projects isn’t a good enough reason to grant Heery an automatic extension, Commissioner Mary Davis said.
