Dadeville school project on hold

DADEVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

A major dollar school project paid for with federal stimulus dollars is on hold.  Dadeville High School had been undergoing an extensive reconstruction.

WSFA 12 News has learned the delay is the result of a dispute between the school system and the lead contractor on the project – WCCI Inc., of Columbus, Ga.  The renovation of Dadeville High School is a massive project aimed at modernizing the historic campus, right down to the plumbing.

But WSFA 12 News has learned the work suddenly came to a halt within the past few weeks.  School board president Randy Anderson said the project is "behind schedule."  He also said there had been some issues between the system and the contractor, but he said he was not at liberty to discuss anything further, because of pending litigation.

He was hopeful that more information could be released on the issue soon.  And Anderson did say that the project was not scheduled to be completed by the beginning of the school year.  Attempts on Tuesday to reach WCCI Inc. were unsuccessful.
