Accepted three balancing change orders for the Maple City Greenway-Fidler Pond, Dickerson Landing phase two and the Electric Brew bump-out projects. The Maple City Greenway-Fidler Pond project required more topsoil removal than anticipated, which led to an increase of $14,857.06 for a final contract price of $77,884.56. The Dickerson Landing change order increased the price by $2,252.04 for a total contract price of $177,226.79. The Electric Brew bump-out required additional removal of concrete that was removed from the alleyway due to its poor condition that would not provide a good transition for the new concrete to tie into.
