Senator says Moody project decision due in January

January 4, 2008

Albany -- Senator Saxby Chambliss hopes sub-contractors owed millions of dollars for work done on a Moody Air Force base housing project will get help by the end of the month.

Work stopped in March on construction of 600 new homes for airmen stationed at Moody Air Force Base. Sub-contractors who worked on the job still haven't been paid by the Carabetta Group which was awarded the contract by the Air Force.

Senator Chambliss expects by January 15th another company will be named to take over the project. Chambliss said " once that is done, then the Air Force collaterally has to make a decision on what additional funding may be available to try to help out these sub contractors, who have been hurt so drastically."

Chambliss says the General Accounting Office is investigating why the Air Force awarded the Carabetta Group contracts to build housing at bases in five states despite a poor performance record.

Construction is months behind schedule and millions of dollars over budget.
