Here’s the Public Works Report from the Dec. 18 City Commission meeting:

Storm Water Utility: Board of Public Utilities (Initial Set up fees)

Motion to approve payment to the Board Of Public Utilities for set-up fees for Storm Water Utilities billing and collection fees as well as informational inserts for a cost not to exceed $9,610.92.

To implement the Storm Water Utility we had to have a way to collect the fees.  BPU collects our sewer fees along with water, electric and trash services.  It made sense to add stormwater fees to the utility bill.   To accomplish that task, there was a great deal of work that had to go into the billing software including some computer programming.  This work was actually completed at the end of 2016 to be billed in 2017.  We recently received the invoice in the amount of $9,610.92.  

Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II): Change Order #5 (McCullough) Limestone Road Service Connections

Motion to approve Change Order #5 on the Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II) Project with McCullough Excavation, Inc. for an amount not to exceed $4,180.00 for installation of two service risers on Limestone Road and authorize the Mayor to sign the Change Order.

We received a request from two properties on Limestone Road to hook up to the new sanitary sewer.  We asked McCullough for a cost to complete the work.  The property owners have reimbursed the City for this amount at $2,090 each. 

Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II): Change Order #6 (McCullough) Deduct for Millings

Motion to approve Change Order #6 on the Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II) Project with McCullough Excavation, Inc. for a deduct in the amount of -$906.95, and authorize the Mayor to sign the Change Order for using City provided millings in Lieu of Contractor provided aggregate for surfacing of the alley.

We needed to surface the alley on this project after the installation of the new sewer main was complete.  We had millings available for this use and we received a deduct in the amount of -$906.95 for providing the millings to the Contractor.

Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II): Change Order #7 (McCullough) Adjustment of final quanties

Motion to approve Change Order #7 on the Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II) Project with McCullough Excavation, Inc. for a deduct in the amount of -id="mce_marker",426.40 for the adjustment of final quantities from what was estimated on the plans to what was actually required to complete the work and authorize the Mayor to sign the Change Order.

After the adjustment of final quantities from what was estimated on the plans to what was required to complete the work it amounted to a net deduct of -id="mce_marker",426.40 from the original contract total.

Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II): Change Order #8 (McCullough) Correction of Change Order #1

Motion to approve Change Order #8 on the Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II) Project with McCullough Excavation, Inc. for a deduct of -$200.00 to correct an error on Change Order #1 and authorize the Mayor to sign the Change Order.

An error was found on Change Order #1, where the cost of the wrong manhole was used in that Change Order.  The result was an adjustment of $200.00.  Change Order #8 corrects this error.  

Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II): Change Order #9 (McCullough) Unforeseen soil conditions along Alignment "A"

Motion to approve Change Order #9 on the Centennial Drive Sewer Improvements (Phase II) Project with McCullough Excavation, Inc. for an amount not to exceed id="mce_marker"7,009.00 to compensate the Contractor for additional expenses incurred due to groundwater and unstable soil along alignment "A", and authorize the Mayor to sign the Change Order.

We received a request from the Contractor for relief of additional expenses incurred during the installation of alignment "A".  Alignment "A"is the farthest north section of the new main.  Along part of this stretch, high groundwater and unstable soil was encountered.   

Prior to bidding the project, the Contractor dug test holes near the stream where it was likely to encounter a high water table and unstable soils.  They bid the project accordingly. 

We would like to reimburse the Contractor a total of id="mce_marker"7,009.00 for additional expenses incurred on the project.  

Update on the Barnstormers-Premier Subdivisions Project

Work continued on the Barnstormers/Premier Subdivisions last week.  Lot grading and excavation on the ditches and streets continued.  The installation of the storm sewer under the gas pipeline was completed.   Good progress continued on the sanitary sewer.
