JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – The City of Jamestown has finally settled a lawsuit with a construction company that was hired to renovate Tracy Plaza. 

In 2017, the City of Jamestown hired Patterson Stevens to renovate Tracy Plaza, that sits above both the Jamestown Fire Department and Jamestown Police Station. Alongside a parking garage.

While construction was underway, a massive leak of rain water occurred in the lower levels, causing damages. 

Since then, the city filed a lawsuit against the construction company in 2019 claiming that Patterson was responsible for the leak, by not properly securing the area. Ultimately being settled in 2020.

Patterson in turn also sued the city for a breach of contract, stating that the city owed them for the work done at Tracy Plaza.

In a settlement reached this week, the corporation council was finally able to settle the dispute.

“A couple years ago we ended up taking a settlement from them, over the Fire Department,“ explained Corporation Counsel Elliot Raimondo. “This lawsuit involves negligence, we alleged negligence against them for shoddy work done via the roof of the Police Department and Fire Department. Those turned into two different lawsuits

Going forward, the city will no longer employ their services for construction.
