New Albany purchases lot for potential aquatic center

Town Clock Church work still halted



Brewer said he met Tuesday with Stumler, the contractor and the architect for the project, and the sides are working toward a solution. 

He maintained that due to the nature, scope and expense of the project, that DM Masonry needed to be a licensed commercial contractor. According to Brewer, it costs about $150 to obtain such a license, and there are multiple locations for testing. 

“Our ordinances require that [the contractor] be licensed,” Brewer said. 

Since the project involves work on a place of assembly, Brewer added that the state needs to be notified of the project and receive a construction design lease from the contractor and architect. 

The state will alert the city if additional documentation is needed, he continued. 

Brewer said DM Masonry needs to obtain its commercial license and then officials can determine if a permit is needed for construction. He anticipates that in order to follow city ordinances, the contractor likely will need a permit for at least the first phase of construction. 

The administration supports the project but has to ensure equality in the process by requiring the necessary licensing, Brewer continued. 

Stumler told the board of works Tuesday that DM Masonry would seek the commercial certification. 

“Which I don’t think he needs to, but he’s going to anyway,” he said. “We’re trying to abide by all rules.”
