Fanning/Howey being paid too much


I read with dismay that Fanning/Howey Associates would ask for additional funds to cover their cost of additional work because of the change to the location of the Urbana elementary/middle school. They lead the process to decide the original location. They lead the local planning group to believe that everything would be OK with the location next to the old Urbana City dump.

The local planning group relied on Fanning/Howey Associates expertise. They conducted the meetings and decided upon the agenda. Questions were deflected by them that might have shed light on the problems with the original location.

I would not have given them a cent more to cover their additional costs caused by their own incompetence. They are making enough as is!
