The city’s personnel, finance and public works committee recommended approval to close out the city lake project contract this week.

City Administrator Russell Rost outlined a change order, with a deduction of $2,214 and an increase of $4,565, both based on materials used on the sidewalks. The net increase is $2,351.

The project included a new handicapped-accessible floating fishing dock at the lake, fishing jetties to the south and west sides of the lake, handicapped-accessible concrete parking lots on Clark Avenue and Park Drive, a sediment basin on the west side of the lake to prevent siltation problems, and 5-foot-wide concrete sidewalks on top of the dam in place of the former asphalt walkway.

The steel-reinforced concrete is 6 inches thick and designed to last 25 years without maintenance.

The change order brings the total cost of the project to $321,364.50.

Improvements were completed through a 75-25 percent cost-share grant through the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The contractor for the project is Cannon General Contractors, Troy.

Final approval to close out the project will be brought to the board of aldermen Monday night.
