why not?
if it was written into the contract, and ALL parties agreed, then Carlson should pay up. if they finished on time, Carlson would expect payment.......... contracts go both ways.

It sounds to me as if the first selectman is a friend of Carlson, the contractor. That's why they aren't collecting the money. And the project wasn't a little late, it was ridiculously late.
Just another spineless scumbag politician doing the wrong thing.

Yeah, it's basically open corruption, just like in Bridgeport.

Easton Taxpayers, should speak up and demand elected officials, enforce Town of Easton Contracts, or else resign, when all contractors discover that the Town Of Easton FEARS LIGTIGATION over contracts, the Easton Citizens will be considered ripe for financial rape.
