“We are afraid they won’t complete the work on schedule,” said County Planner Alan Pierce Tuesday.

In January, Gulf Group, of Chipley bid $566,000 to remove debris and repair the pier.  Pierce said they could receive a penalty of $300 a day if they fail to complete the work by June 30.

“We have put them on notice with a letter and they have not asked us for an extension. There are reasons to grant an extension, but they have to ask.” Pierce said, adding that the contractor has not asked for an extension.

Gulf Group began work on the pier in April.
