HARRODSBURG - Major work done to run a new sewer line in the southern section of the city has left one resident deeply dissatisfied.
Bill Patrick spoke to the Harrodsburg City Commission Tuesday night to say he signed a contract with the city in May 2000 to allow the line to go through his property and the city promised to put the property back the way it was before construction began.
Patrick said he has about $40,000 damage to his property and repeated contacts with GRW, the engineering firm that designed the project, and Haydon Brothers of Springfield, the construction contractor, had brought no improvements.
The two companies sat down with Patrick June 11 and promised the repairs to his river bank and swimming pool would be completed by the end of June, Patrick said. He said Laura Gilkerson of GRW promised weekly calls to check on the progress of the repairs and she has called once. No improvements have been made; in fact, he said, the situation is worse.
