“You hesitated,” McGeney said before suggesting that the board had learned a lesson about getting such deliveries on time.

Member Jarrod Hochman prodded that the only thing that might compensate the city for the delay is a donation from Graham Products to the Welch School playground fund. Hiscock made no reply to this idea.

The mayor praised the parents, students, teachers and staff at Burke School for bearing with the delays.

“The Burke School is going to look great,” Bettencourt said, before adding, “My children go there.”

The delay was all the more frustrating because the window project came in the wake of revelations that caulking in the school had contained worrisome levels of PCBs, suspected of causing cancer.
