According to Foulger-Pratt, they're just looking out for the people of their community. Why didn't the county just have a beer with F-P's clearly stellar engineers and hash this all out?
In a response to the report, Foulger-Pratt said, “The way in which this report was developed, however, is indicative of the county’s conduct throughout this entire process. Everyone in this community — including us — has been waiting for more than a year for the county to act. During that time, we made numerous requests for meetings between our engineers and the county’s engineers in order to sit down, as professionals, address any concerns and more forward for the benefit of the community.
You're doin' a heckuva job, Folger-Pratt! (Corporate motto: "We Build to Last")
Interestingly, the banner of FP's corporate website features a transit center-free downtown Silver Spring and the banner that once proudly hung from the worksite has been unceremoniously removed. Maybe they are trying to whitewash the whole project out of existence.
