WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — West Lafayette City leaders are left looking for a new contractor to finish the new city hall.

On Monday morning the city's redevelopment commission said they, "mutually parted ways" with Garmong.

That's according to director of development Erik Carlson.

Garmong and Berglund Construction partnered to work on the project a little less than a year ago.

Berglund focuses on historical conservation.

City leaders were adamant the Morton Community Center keep most of its classic look. The 90-year-old building is on the National Historical Registry list.

Within the last 10 days, Garmong decided Berglund would no longer be a part of the construction team.

That violated the contract between West Lafayette and Garmong.

Carlson said the city is making the right call.

"We want to be able to see the project that we have envisioned from the beginning and done at a price and at a quality that we have been expecting," said Carlson.

A new contractor will be announced July 31st. The renovated hall still has a completion date of the fall of 2020.
