CLINTON — The Clinton City Council passed several resolutions approving change orders for various city projects on Tuesday night.

The resolutions were listed in the council’s unanimous consent calendar and were pulled from the calendar in order to facilitate discussion on the resolutions.

The resolutions included a cost increase of $14,680 to a contract with Tschiggfrie Excavating for the South 18th Street roadway improvements project, an increase of $65,427 in a contract with Wheatland Construction due to changes made to the design of the Marina Amenities Building and modification of a contract with Wheatland Construction, Inc., by $137,410.56 for south phase improvements at the marina. Also approved was an engineering agreement modification with JJR, LLC., for an additional $43,000 to facilitate engineering services associated with the marina design.

Ward 3 Councilman Darrell Smith asked City Administrator Gary Boden to give the council a status on the projects, detailing how much is being spent currently and how much more would need to be spent.

Boden replied that the changes were being made as discussed with the council at previous council meetings and noted that costs related to those changes were coming in as expected.

He added that more discussion regarding the changes to those projects would occur in the Committee of the Whole agenda following the regular council meeting.

Pastor Fred Schauer addressed the council and offered gratitude to the council and the community.

He said that more than 215 people participated in Sunday’s CROP Walk and noted that 25 percent of the funds raised would remain locally.

He thanked the community for its generosity and said he would inform the council how much money was raised within the coming weeks.

Before adjourning the regular meeting, At-Large Councilman Mark Vulich noted that the deer management program hunt began on Sept. 15.

He said that 13 deer have been harvested so far, equaling one-third of last year’s total.

He said 25 hunters are active in the hunt and one hunter already has gotten six deer, including one buck as a reward tag. He said the program is off to a good start.
