PASCAGOULA — The Jackson County Board of Supervisors has denied a claim by the jail architects they fired last week.
Both the board attorney and the president of the board said yesterday the company, The Goldberg Group, billed the county for services that hadn’t been completed.
The Sun Herald reports instead of paying a $68,000 bill the group submitted for the final building design, bidding and completion of the document phase of the jail, the county paid $28,000 for 98 percent of the bidding design and a portion of the document and bidding phases. The Board of Supervisors fired the firm last week saying there was some problem in the bid process to find a contractor for the jail.
The low bid early last month came in at $27 million.
