Paducah commission considers increasing downtown demolition project amount

It could cost nearly $11,000 more than previously thought to demolish a building at 432 Broadway St. in Paducah.

City commissioners introduced an ordinance for a change order for the project that would increase the project’s cost to $490,000 and extend the completion date to the end of March.

Commissioners say the extension is necessary because the contractor stopped the demolition work while another company removed a steel column shared with a building next door.

The commission will vote on the ordinance in March.
