After White’s update, the board approved a $14,700 change order for soil remediation work to the 14th Street extension to fix the rutting and pumping of the subgrade soils. This leaves the project contingency at $290,657. The contingency started at $400,000.
Board members also approved three sewer easement agreements with neighboring farmers, allowing for the construction of the sewer line from the Millcreek pipeline to the new middle school property. The easements total $44,372 and, like the rest of the project, will be paid using the one-cent sales tax.
