Wednesday, March 10, 2021

Contract for engineering services approved

Work is progressing on the Chapell Drive overpass project, with the Monett City Council approving a contract with Anderson Engineering, Inc., for services related to the project.

“The project has received tentative approval with Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) to offset some of those costs,” said Dennis Pyle, city administrator. “We’ve submitted preliminary engineering and gotten this project fast-tracked.”

The overpass is slated to be built at the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe at-grade crossing on Chapell Drive near the Monett National Guard Armory.

Commissioners also approved the annexation petition of Cliff Matthews, representing Sanmir Developers, LLC, for a plot just off Chapell Drive near the Deer Lake subdivision and zoned it for commercial use. Matthews plans to develop multi-family housing units on the property in the future.

Commissioners approved a bill requiring the residency requirement of the city administrator, within six months of being appointed to the position, to reside within five miles of the city limits.

Vaughn Dirtworks, LLC, was the lowest bidder for the removal of a water stand-pipe tower foundation and concrete perimeter located at the Monett City Park, coming in at $13,000. Vaughn also won the low bid for the removal of a foundation and partial concrete floor slab located at 601 Front St., adjacent to the Freedom Grain Silo, at a cost of $19,550, as well as that of 913 East Broadway, at a cost of $29,090.

In other business, commissioners approved:

• Change Order No. 1 with B3 Contractors, LLC, relating to the Fifth Street sidewalk improvement project, resulting in a deduction of $22,202.28, as a result of reconciling final quantities of materials used, dropping the final cost from $211,898.63 to $189,697.35.

• Change Order No. 2 with Blevins Asphalt Construction Co., Inc. for the Cleveland Avenue street improvement project, resulting in an increase of $14,464.95 to the contract price, bringing the total to $397,091.97. The changes include adding a striped bike lane with markings and a mid-block school crosswalk.

• Change Order No. 3 with Vaughn Dirtworks, LLC, relating to the Bridle Lane street improvement project adding a guard rail along the back of curb at two sections to protect the existing electric poles and guy wire, resulting in a deduction of $39,921.24 and a final contract price of $581,502.94.
