The original budget for the project was $902,600. Now, an addendum repurposes $516,595 of that to be held for a new water booster and $328,671 to be used for projects like water treatment improvements and replacing a well.
The addendum was approved by the Elkhart County Board of Commissioners Monday, June 9, and will go before the Elkhart County Council for final approval Saturday, June 14.
The commissioners Monday also approved a memorandum of understanding between the Elkhart County Highway Department and the Michiana Area Council of Government (MACOG).
The agreement states that the highway department will provide MACOG with $4,000 for to conduct several traffic count studies and intersection analyses.
The results of the studies can be used to determine future ordinances and projects for the county.
