Decatur’s City Commission at its Aug. 19 meeting will consider approving a $45,000 change order to cover unexpected costs for downtown storm drain improvements.

According to documents provided by the city, this amounts to a 3.5 percent contract increase, taking the total amount for East Maple repairs from $1.29 million to $1.33 million. Here’s the breakdown provided by the city:

The change order results from the following additional work items:

-Removal of poor soils and replacement with gravel in several areas under the new storm drainage system – $12,000

– An unplanned adjustment to the water lines in East Maple Street – $3,500

– Connection of several private drainage pipes to the new system – $8,500

– Installation of a new trench drain to capture storm water from the alley on the south side of East Maple Street – $14,000

РMiscellaneous pavement repairs, adjustments to underground utilities   $7,000

Other than that, it’s a pretty light agenda. Monday’s City Commission meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at City Hall, located at 509 N. McDonough Street.
