Officials stand behind penalties

HAMILTON - The Hamilton recreation and senior center renovation project is now two-and-a-half-months past its original deadline.
The Hamilton City Council discussed the prolonged work at the E.T. Sims Neighborhood Facilities Building during a work session on Wednesday, Aug. 15, in the Hamilton City Hall Tea Room. The council did not meet in the council chambers due to air conditioning issues.
Hamilton Mayor Bob Page told the council he began enforcing a $300-per-day penality on general contractor Jerry Dyar, owner of Lynn-based Dymac Contracting, on Saturday, Aug. 10.
Page said he has been approached by some people on behalf of Dyar, urging the city to not impose the penalties as the delays have been out of the contractor’s control.
