MASD taking legal action over work by contractor at middle school

Posted

Middletown Area School District appears headed to court over a dispute with two contractors related to work at the middle school.

The school board on Jan. 23 approved a motion to file a writ of summons in court against the two contractors, one referred to as a general construction contractor and the other a heating, air conditioning and ventilation contractor.

The two contractors are not identified in the motion.

David Franklin, the school district’s chief financial officer, did not respond to a request for comment from the Press & Journal.

District spokeswoman Jody Zorbaugh said she had no additional information.

The board’s motion also orders the district document that the general construction and HVAC contractors “have both abandoned their duties under the contract documents to repair defective work” at the middle school.

The district had not filed anything in Dauphin County Court as of Jan. 30, according to a check of online court records.
