Two months after learning of a contractor proposal for installing sewer lines to Second Street, Emerson City Council approved Monday two resolutions for change orders to the work.
During a November work session, City Manager Kevin McBurnett brought to the council a "very cheap" deal for installing sewer lines. Complications arose over place of infrastructure along Second Street and in the intersection of Second and Third streets.
The roughly 750 feet of line will cost the city an additional $60,070, with the project to be paid for with Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax miscellaneous sewer line funds.
The two items approved Monday include change orders Nos. 1 and 2 for the Second Street Infrastructure Improvements, Division I Sanitary Sewer.
Additionally, the council approved a revised list of roads for an updated speed detection device -- or radar -- permit for the city from the Georgia Department of Transportation. The list now includes the new roads created by the construction of the Old Alabama Road bypass.
City Clerk Debbie Shinall announced the release of election information for the city. During the Nov. 8 election, the city will elect a mayor and two at-large council members. All terms are four years.
