College Place City Council special meeting Tuesday


— The City Council will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 625 S. College Ave.

The only item on the agenda is a change order for the Larch Avenue-Fourth Street overlay project.

City Administrator Pat Reay said the change involves having the contractor, Humbert Asphalt, perform additional work, called "pre-leveling" on Fourth Street. The work is needed because after the old pavement had been ground off, serious problems with the road base were uncovered, according to a memo prepared for the council.

The pre-leveling work on Fourth Street had been an option taken out when the contract was originally approved in June, Reay said, but it became necessary to add it back in when the problems with the road base were discovered.

"It's a change in conditions now that the project is moving forward," Reay said.
