Company gets contract

PANAMA CITY, Fla. -- The airport authority awarded the stormwater management system augmentation contract to Phoenix Construction of Lynn Haven. Phoenix submitted a bid of $3.219 million, lowest of five bids. The board and Phoenix spent two years fighting over who was responsible for problems at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport with sod, erosion, sand and filtration ponds during construction, and then a year more of litigation after the airport opened. Eventually, the two reached an agreement. (Source: Panama City News Herald, 08/07/12)
