The city and the builder of the $30-million expansion to the Anaheim Convention Center have agreed to negotiate a settlement over the project's disputed completion date.
The city of Anaheim and Taylor Woodrow Construction Co. on Tuesday agreed to a six-month negotiation to settle the dispute in hopes of avoiding further legal action. The City Council unanimously passed the agreement.
"We both agreed to a standstill agreement as long as we're still progressing," said City Atty. Jack L. White. "It saves the city taxpayers the potential cost and time of defending that litigation."
The construction company filed an $8.7-million claim against Anaheim in December, alleging that the city was responsible for construction delays because additional work was required.
