Commission approves three change orders
The Watertown Public Works Commission reviewed three change orders during its meeting Tuesday.
One is for the final 2018 curb and gutter and sidewalk replacement project which would subtract $134,808.94 from the contract amount, bringing the final price to $278,828.91. The cost was originally $413,637.85 but not all the work was completed this year and all the incomplete 2018 contract work will be rebid in the upcoming year.
The other change order is for the final 2018 bituminous surfacing project. The contract price was $464,651.25 but not all work was completed this year and all the incomplete 2018 work will be rebid in 2019. This change order decreases the contract by $103,807.50 for a final revised total of $360,843.75.
Both change orders were approved by the Watertown Common Council Tuesday night after the commission’s meeting.
The commission reviewed and approved an order for a 2018 pavement marking project which would reduce the contract price by $3,796.42 to a total of $205,939.28. Since the amount reduced doesn’t exceed $10,000 it did not have to go to the common council as a resolution, according to Bill Maron, chairman of the commission.
