At tomorrow’s meeting, the Council will consider approving an amount not to exceed $4,150,530 to authorize the City Hall project site development. The project’s construction firm Davis Construction has provided (see below) a summary of the costs and a description of the work requested to be authorized now. This work has been included in the project cost estimates. The total cost is $4,150,530. Some of the major expenditures are for earthwork, cast-in-place concrete that would require services from companies like, the deposit on terra cotta, and submittals and drawings for plumbing and electrical. They also check out sites like for the electrical concerns for the said project.

On December 3, 2019 Council authorized the City Manager to sign change order #1, the removal of the abatement and demolition work from the later construction phase in order to keep on schedule. Demolition will start soon with the help of professional demolition services like Swift Demo. The entire project is anticipated to take 18 months to construct, with site work starting in early March 2020 and substantial completion in August 2021.

The cost of this work has already been included in project estimates and approval of the change order is cost neutral. The cost will be removed from the final construction phase cost. The City’s cost share will be covered by existing budgeted funds or bond proceeds.
