The completion of the Bowie County Veteran’s Monument Park will be delayed as of this week due to a paid in full contractor on the project not doing the work they were paid to do up front on the granite pieces that were to be one of the main focal points of the memorial.

Monument organizers have now gone to the Red River County Sheriff’s Department and filed a report on Taylor Monument, of Avery, for failing to do the work that they were paid for more than a year ago, according to Co-Chairperson, Frank Warner.

Warner told the Tribune that the group originally went to Taylor Monument on March 3, 2016 and paid them more than $2500 to do the granite work on the monument, that is currently under construction in downtown New Boston adjacent to the new 3 Bostons Museum.
