Dear Mr. Perrett,
This letter is meant to serve as an addendum to the proposal
submitted to the City of Pittsburgh by Carnegie Science Center (CSC)
concerning the disposition of the old Buhl building artifacts.
In that proposal, CSC states that we would require others to meet the
costs associated with labeling, disassembly and removal of the
artifacts. We estimated the cost for this part of the proposal at
We are now in receipt of a letter from Jane Werner of the Pittsburgh
Children's Museum (PCM) stating that PCM is prepared to partner
with us in this project by assuming $11,960 of the costs for the
removal of the artifacts.
Based on this good faith offer by PCM, CSC agrees to cover the
remaining actual costs associated with this stage of the project.
Accordingly, this means that the City of Pittsburgh will not be
responsible for any of the costs outlined in our proposal.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or John
Radzilowicz for clarification.
Seddon L. Bennington, Ph.D., Director
