Summary
This item includes a change order in the amount of $56,468.40 and 135 additional days for the construction contract for the Wilbarger Creek Park Project. City staff and the Contractor agreed to remove the Limestone Wall-Block Adjustments in the amount of $32,650.00, all other components were determined to remain in the Change Order necessary for reimbursement to the Contractor.
City Staff had taken a change order to City Council for consideration at the July 28, 2020 City Council Meeting. At that time, the change order included an increase of $89,118.40 and added 135 additional days to the construction contract.

Staff has provided additional information about the project, in the background, for reference as related to the change order and further explanation on how we got to where we are. There reportedly have been multiple issues with how the City has managed the project and changes in field conditions.
Since the July 28th City Council meeting, City staff has met with the Contractor to renegotiate the Change Order and confirm the project completion and delivery of the Wilbarger Creek Park. The Contractor has provided information in support of the proposed Change Order Items and the documentation is attached to the City Council Agenda Item.

A majority of the requested items were related to Request for Information (RFI) as such those have been referenced in the Change Order line items.
