STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  The successful bid for construction of the Baywalk segment behind the Meierhoff building was $225,000. City council Resolution 06-0714 authorized the acceptance of reimbursement in the amount of $225,000 from DEDA for said construction costs.


The purpose of this resolution is to amend Resolution 06-0714 to increase the amount authorized to be accepted for reimbursement by up to $56,250, for a total amount up to $281,250. Currently, a change order for extended sidewalks, railings and fencing in the amount of $13,445 is necessitated by the storage of docks by Marine Iron at the end of the Minnesota Slip. Another change order in the approximate amount of $3,000 will be required to increase sidewalks and curbing to accommodated a Minnesota power electrical equipment vault. An additional change order is anticipated when the contractor starts to repair the Minnesota slipface. The extent of the repair which may be required is unknown at this time.
