They definitely did their part bleeding us, but to hear it from them they were just willing followers and that they basically did all of the construction / contracting "at cost" out of the goodness of their hearts. They supposedly made sure that their subcontractors made only meager profits, too! Come on! The parking lots and Church steps are cracking all over! The concrete work obviously wasn't done right (not thick enough and not sealed), but I'll bet the Parish paid for it to be done right! Costs kept increasing during the course of the project and the donations made for stained glass windows and memorial bricks evaporated into the P&L cost line items covering who knows what expenditures. Hmm, cutting corners to increase profits as the GC (quality control / cost management duties) while also maintaining the internal auditing powers, wow! If you play both side you can't lose! As me ol' granny from Belfast always said, "ay, a snake with 2 tongues makes for double the bite". I never knew what the ol' gal meant until now!
