Mabel City Council approves three change orders

Posted in Mabel Government

The Mabel City Council met on August 13, 2014 at 7 p.m. All council members were present.

Kaye Bernard from Tri-County Electric was present at the meeting to answer any questions the council had about Tri-County’s acquisition of Alliant Energy’s territory in southern Minnesota. The acquisition has been in the works for over two years. Tri-County plans to hire some of Alliant’s current employees after the transaction which should close sometime in 2014. They also plan to update utility meters in the year or so after the acquisition is completed and will also make some changes which should lessen outages. The council was asked to sign a resolution stating that the acquisition is a positive move for the City of Mabel. A motion to sign the resolution was passed.

Sean Welty and Mike Hastreiter from Davy Engineering were at the meeting to update the council on the project. Welty presented three change orders to the council. The first change order will allow Jech Excavating to recycle millings taken from the streets for the sub-base on the new streets. The price of the change was quoted at $35,030.16, but can fluctuate depending on the amount of millings used. The price will be adjusted at the end of the project.

The second change order was also from Jech Excavating and pertained to the tracer wire used for detecting metallic pipes underground. Rural Development approved changing to a different tracer wire method, and the Minnesota Rural Water Association requires the change. The price was quoted at $39,019.70.

The third change order was for the extra time the gas company needed to complete their portion of the project at the wastewater plant. The company installed meters that were too small at first and had to be replaced with bigger ones which delayed the project. There was no additional cost.

All change orders were approved by the council.

Welty also presented a payment request from Hoskins Electric Inc. in the amount of $3,239.40 for a project that they’ve completed, and a partial payment request from Jech Excavating for the underground utility work in the amount of $66,145.81 for all unit price items. Both payment requests were approved by the council.

The minutes from the July 9, 2014 meeting were reviewed and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.
