East Lincoln Street Improvement Project Grading Proposal – Council reviewed a proposal to remove dirt and lower the grade in the right of way in the 400 block of East Lincoln Street.  The work was not included in the original contract nor was it specified in the bidding documents or plans.  There has been a buildup of dirt at the back of the curbs that has increased the grade to 6 inches to 9 inches higher than the back of curb.  A proposal from Vogts Construction was to bill the work on an hourly basis for equipment that was in use to lower the grade.  The cost breakdown on the equipment is $75.00 and hour for a backhoe, $45.00 an hour for a skid loader and $60.00 an hour for a dump truck.  The cost of the work would not exceed $6,000.00.


After review of the proposal Councilwoman Betty Hunter made a motion to approve the proposal from Vogts Construction to remove the dirt and lower the grade of the right of way in the 400 block of East Lincoln in an amount not to exceed $6,000.00, with the cost of the work to calculated on an hourly basis of $75.00 an hour for a backhoe, $45.00 an hour for a skid loader and $60.00 for a dump truck.  Motion was seconded by Councilman Ken Sjogren and passed on a 7-0 roll call vote.



Adjournment – Lloyd Rohr moved to adjourn the meeting.  Motion seconded by Gary Shogren and passed.  Meeting adjourned at 5:46 p.m.
