The Greece School Board must decide whether to accept a $5.2 million payment to settle the Greece Central School District’s claim against an architectural firm the district accuses of botching plans, and for the oversight of a $120 million districtwide renovation project.
The project, which the district started planning in 2000 and financed with a $119.5 million bond issue, got hit by numerous delays and cost overruns and left its school buildings with shortfalls, most of which it blamed on the architectural firm’s alleged poor planning and supervision.
