EDGAR CO. (ECWd) -
In a follow-up to the article in which we stated that Zimmerly Redi-Mix was not in compliance with IDOT as far as having an approved mix design, we submitted a FOIA request to IDOT requesting any approved mix designs for Zimmerly Redi-Mix.
Their response was just what we had expected, the approval for the Zimmerly mix design was dated the day after the meeting in which Mr. Patrick claimed that Zimmerly's did have an approved mix design. This would mean that the day Redi-Mix was ordered from a different vendor for the project in question...and the day of the meeting where the public was informed of the situation...Zimmerly's did not have an approved design, contrary to the claims of Mr. Patrick.
His attempts at intimidating the County Engineer failed. One can only wonder if this will be the new norm for doing business with the county - intimidating your way into contracts.
Below is the IDOT approved mix design, dated June 25, 2013 - and the June 24, 2013 video again, so that you can see Mr. Patrick making false claims about their mix design.
Don't miss the Monday Morning County Highway meeting! Starts at 9am at the County Highway Department. County Board Study Session to follow!
