MOUND CITY – Linn County Counselor Gary Thompson discussed information and change orders about the Justice Center project.
Thompson gave the commissioners a change order for $39,080. This work in this change order was for added sheetrock, floor drains behind the cells, a revision in a light fixture, moving the power pole and burying the phone line. The commissioners approved the change order.
Thompson updated the commissioners on the rebate from the electrical engineering company working on the Justice Center. He said that the company had sent $77,972, a little less than half the total owed to the county. He said that the company was paying it as the work was done.
Thompson brought up that he had been contacted by Goldberg Group Architects and they wanted to know about planning an opening for the Justice Center. Thompson said the commissioners might want to start thinking about this.
Thompson said that Goldberg was thinking about a mid- to late-April open house, and they would be present to photograph or video it and also would help with organizing it.
After an executive session, the commissioners authorized Thompson to approve installing the underground electrical service to the annex for up to $32,000.
Thompson also presented a resolution to amend the general permit terms and conditions for utility construction in the county road right of way.
Thompson said that essentially what it does is require that any company that is buying out an existing company that already has utilities already in the right of way or buying utilities from another company that are already in the right of way that they give notice to the county of the new ownership and that they provide certain paperwork that is consistent with that and that they pay a processing fee.
