Contractor being sued by Elk Grove on District56 pool tells mayor, city council 'take a real close look because you don't know the whole truth here'

Elk Grove experienced another blackeye in economic development director Darrell Doan's attempts to establish the city as a premier place to start a business, especially family-owned and minority and women-owned enterprises. That blow was delivered during public comment at the Wednesday, September 11 Elk Grove City Council meeting. 

Delivering that message to the five members of the Elk Grove City Council were the co-owners of Big B Construction, Brian and Dori Erickson. The City of Elk Grove is suing Big B and other contractors over the almost one year delay of the city's recently opened swimming pool at the District56 facility.

During their comments, the Erickson's pushed back on the allegations made by the city in the lawsuit. Brian Erickson said their company followed the specifications they were provided and has the documentation to prove it, while Dori Erickson explained how the city's litigation has put the future of jobs for their employee's and the company at risk. See the video below for their entire commentary.

The Erickson's are the most recent entrepreneurs to criticize not only the lack of response from the Elk Grove mayor and city council to their concerns but the unfriendliness of the city to small business owners. The owners of businesses at the Stonelake Shopping center - Results Transformation Center and Barberz Dreme - have recently expressed their frustration of conducting business in Elk Grove and the lack of response from city bureaucrats and elected officials.
