PUBLIC WORKS & AGREEMENTS 10-02-02
Keith Browning, Director of Public Works/County Engineer, presented a Change Order for Route 442 Project No. 23 C-3472-01. Browning explained that this project entails reconstruction portions of the roadway to improve the vertical alignment and thereby improve sight distance. The remaining portions of the roadway are to remain in place with shoulders added and frontslopes and backslopes flattened to improve roadside safety. The pavement on the portions of roadway that are to remain is deteriorating. The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has been contacted about milling and overlaying the upper 11/2" of those pavement areas that are to remain replace. KDOT has agreed to allow adding this work to the federally funded project. The total cost to add the milling and overlay work is estimated to be $85,902.65. Federal funds would pay for 80% of this work leaving Douglas County responsible for approximately $17,200 of the total added cost. Johnson made a motion to approve the change order to Project No. 23 C-3472-01 for the milling and overlaying of portions of pavement that will not be replaced as part of the project at a maxi mum cost to Douglas County of $20,000. Motion was seconded by Jones and carried unanimously.


ACCOUNTS PAYABLE 10-02-02
Johnson moved approval of accounts payable in the amount of $140,334.77 to be paid 9/30/02. Jones seconded and the motion carried unanimously.
