City again delays move of employees into Metrocenter
Published: May 30,2012
JACKSON — The city of Jackson is changing the date again for moving around 300 employees to the Metrocenter.
The Clarion-Ledger reports the big move now will go down before the end of July.
The relocation of a handful of city departments has now had at least six projected move-in dates.
October 1 was pushed to December. December became January when the city learned that the offices wouldn’t have the wiring it needed. January became March when the city and developer couldn’t decide who would pay for the wiring. March became April while they argued over whether the city should pay interest on the wiring costs.
Officials say the developer missed the latest target because of some contractual issues with one of its subcontractors.
