The Georgetown Public Library Board of Commissioners are being sued by McCool Companies for the final balance of the bill for the new library. McCool Companies is stating that the library never finished paying for construction.

But library officials say they believed the bill was paid and they are alarmed McCool would go to court without consulting them.

The following is a statement from Paul Enterline, library director:

"The Georgetown Public Library recently learned that McCool Companies brought suit in the Superior Court against the Board of Commissioners concerning the final balance due on the contract for the new library building.

The Board of Commissioners is surprised and disappointed the McCool Companies has seen fit to take this action.  The Board authorized final payment of what our records showed to be the balance due, requiring only that certain routine documents be supplied as a condition of payment and final closeout of the project.  

Because the matter is in litigation, we are advised by counsel not to make any further comment."
