School renovation contractor gets the boot

Allen Lew, the school construction chief, has terminated the contract of the construction companies renovating Hardy Middle School.
The city's new school construction chief, Allen Lew, says the project at Hardy Middle School in Georgetown was up to a year behind schedule and $12 million over budget because of poor coordination between the contractors, Arrow Construction and W.M. Schlosser.

Lew's office has released a report showing that 12 of 18 construction projects slated for this year and next are behind schedule. He says other underperforming contractors on school projects could face the same fate.
