Company agrees to pay $3M over Fort Sill civil claims

FORT SILL, Okla. (TNN) - A construction company has agreed to pay $3 million to settle civil claims based on allegations that they submitted false claims to the Army over work at Lake George on Fort Sill.

LaForge and Budd Construction company, based out of Kansas, entered into a contract to perform work on a dam at Lake George back in 2010.

That included raising the elevation of the dam.

US attorneys claim the company submitted false claims for progress payments for work done and that the company didn’t use the right materials according to their contract.

LaForge has agreed to pay $3 million to the US and has not admitted liability in the case.
