BY COUNCILOR STOVER:
RESOLVED, that Resolution 05-0619, awarding a contract to Apex Mechanical for construction of Fourth Street culvert repairs (Oregon Creek emergency storm repair) be amended to increase the amount by $152,467.83 for a new total of $399,766.83, terms net 30, payable out of Stormwater Fund 0535, Department/Agency 500, Organization 1905, Object 5533, Project #0515ST.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution will authorize an amendment to Resolution 05-0619, passed on 9/12/2005, for emergency repairs to the stormwater culvert in East Fourth Street between 22nd Avenue East and 23rd Avenue East. The scope of the emergency repair work greatly increased during deep excavation. The culvert damage was found to be much more extensive after excavation exposed the failure area and this additional increase is to cover all recognized contractor costs currently being established. All costs are being reimbursed to the city by St. Louis County (East Fourth Street is a county state aid highway).
