Cost dispute with City of Victoria goes to the mat

 

... Burnaby businessman says his company is being “screwed” out of $31,000 for mats he supplied to help make the orca art installation in Centennial Square safe for children to play on. ...

 

...Chris Porter, of Wild Vision Edutainment, which won the $55,000 city design competition for the pop-up art installation, ordered the mats and instructed Raghavan to invoice the city, Raghavan said. “We believed that Chris was acting as an agent for the city. That’s why we approved a $31,000-plus credit.” ....

And of course, this is proving that even a $55,000 CoV project can go off the rails and end up being $86,000 in the end.

Where is Ben?

 

 

...told the matting was considered a safety item requested by the city and not part of the project budget, but that Coun. Ben Isitt had given assurances the city would cover the cost, Raghavan said. Canada Mats’ invoice for $31,247.55 was made out to the city in care of Isitt. ...
