“It is important to City officials that DBE’s are fairly represented on public projects. We are aware of concerns being raised and have conducted a thorough internal investigation.
The FAA has also made inquiries and we can assure you that the City is cooperating fully.
There is a dispute between the general contractor and its subcontractors; however, progress under the contract is moving quickly toward a resolution.
We can confirm that the Airport has paid the general contractor, so funds are available. We look forward to these matters being resolved in the near future.”
Strategic Communications Director
“The City is aware of the federal lawsuit between several of the contractors. The City is not a party to the lawsuit, but is cooperating with the FAA in its investigation, which is continuing.”
