The Cleveland Browns and the City of Cleveland announced Wednesday that the court case involving a contract to perform capital repairs at Cleveland Browns Stadium has been resolved. Two competing bidders on the project have agreed to team up, allowing the work to go forward immediately.
“Today’s agreement assures us that the work can be done quickly and at a reasonable cost,” said Ken Silliman, Chief of Staff to Mayor Frank Jackson. “The agreement also preserves the City’s position on local participation that contractors are a reflection of our community.”
The Cleveland Browns helped to facilitate an agreement between the City and the two contractors involved in the dispute so the vital repairs could begin immediately. The City approved the agreement today.
The $5.8 million project will proceed with Platform Cement holding the general contract as originally awarded by the City. Suburban Maintenance Construction, which filed the litigation, will perform a substantial scope of the restoration work.
Fred Nance, the Browns’ general counsel said the agreement avoided significant delays to the project.
“The Cleveland Browns would like to acknowledge the substantial efforts of the principals of both Suburban and Platform for working so diligently to resolve their differences,” Nance said. “These repairs are critical to maintain our important community asset – Cleveland Browns Stadium – for the benefit of our fans and the public.”
