NORTON: The contractor reworking the site for future Stater Bros. offices hits more obstacles.
By MARK KAWAR Riverside Press-Enterprise (CA) October 27, 2005
The government agency rehabilitating the former Norton Air Force Base agreed Wednesday to pay more to the contractor preparing the base land for Stater Bros. Markets' new headquarters.
Because of the discovery this year of pipes on the land encased in concrete and asbestos, the Inland Valley Development Agency has approved higher payments to the contractor on four occasions, increasing the total payment to the firm by $1 million -- or more than 50 percent from the original contract.
The two Wednesday increases -- approved unanimously by the development agency board -- totaled $167,000.
The total value of the contract is now $3.5 million.
