The Peachtree Road Streetscape had been stalled due to pending litigation with the contractor. Last week, the city and the contractor came to an agreement and all parties agreed to dismiss any and all claims. At this time, the city can move forward with completing the project. Our plan is as follows:
The city has taken steps to avoid future issues such as we have experienced with the Peachtree Road Streetscape. We have hired a consultant to review and restructure the procurement process. On the front end, the city has become LAP certified through the Georgia Department of Transportation, improved its contracts and bond requirements to further protect the city, and trained employees on GDOT standards. We have also increased our use of pre-approved state contracts and pricing. During a project, the city has implemented contractor compliance scorecards and more quality assurance reviews.
