Under terms of a contract, Wetmore Township is penalizing IA Construction of Franklin a total of $250 per day for each calendar day the paving work remains incomplete.

Work was scheduled for completion by Sept. 20, according to discussion Tuesday at a meeting of the Wetmore Township Board of Supervisors.
Paving hasn’t even started.
