Bronson contractor wants money owed

By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

An engineering firm working with the Town of Bronson is asking that money the town owes it be paid early, according to town officials at Monday night's meeting.

Town officials are considering the request, voting unanimously to postpone a decision until more information could be obtained.

Mittauer and Associates Inc., a company that designed the town's upcoming sewer system, wrote in a letter to the town last week it had expected construction to begin this year. A grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture would have covered Mittauer's fees, but that money doesn't come until construction begins.

"They're basically asking for assistance," said Town Clerk Kelli Brettel. " ... With the government shut down, (and because) they're doing a lot of jobs ... for some reason, the last couple of years the projects have taken a long time."

Brettel said Mittauer is asking that the town fork over about $100,000, about half of the total amount the town will owe the firm when all is said and done.
