7. CLASS C ROAD IMPROVEMENTS-Nielson Construction Co. #3C-2006, Change
Order #1, Partial Payment #1
Nielson Construction has completed work on the mill and overlay and road reconstruction. Change Order #1 is necessary to reflect as-built quantities that will increase the contract amount by $30,923.54 for a total of $218,156.88. The 500 East project was to receive a mill and overlay; however, there was no pavement left after the milling nor any gravel base course, consequently the road needed to be reconstructed. The 100 South project was to receive a mill and overlay; however, between Carbon Avenue and 100 East the shoulders were extremely soft and needed to be over excavated and rebuilt with pit run, gravel base course and additional pavement. The invoices for completed work to date and partial payment #1 is $191,327.84. Traffic paint striping still needs to be done.
M & M Asphalt
M&M Asphalt has completed all of the required Slurry Seal work. Change Order #1 is necessary to reflect as-built quantities by increasing the contract in the amount of $5,697.72 for a total of $123,673.28.

The Price City Cemetery Code is being revised as it has not been done since 1986. The fees are now being updated to be current and comparable with other cities. Perpetual care is included in the cost evaluation. Future projects that will be addressed for the cemetery will be headstones from the maintenance standpoint versus flat headstones, personal plantings next to headstones, purchasing burial plots with the intention of selling to others and the idea of having a burial fund set up for those needing assistance paying for city provided services. Changes necessary for this resolution to be passed: Change “may” to “shall” on the section titled, “Deed Transferal Handling Fee” on page 2 and to clarify the time and days of the week on page 1 at the bottom regarding overtime. Also, the equipment rentals on page 2 need to be clarified in detail. Nick Sampinos will review the resolution and return the changes to the committee for review. MOTION.

27. UNFINISHED BUSINESS
a. Emil Simone Complaint - 11-05
28. Item B of Unfinished Business: Buck and Claudia Moynier-Road- 7/06
After several months of discussion and research, the
issue of the road owned by
Price City doesn’t need access to the water tank anymore, Price City can look
at ownership and road maintenance and just patch the road for now, or use
another access route behind the water tank coming from the other side. There is
not a pipeline or utilities of any kind in the upper section of the road
leading to the Moyniers home. The lower section does
have utilities that are under the road. The City could surplus and sell the upper half of the road to the Moyniers
A risk assessment study needs to be done as to who uses the road and how often the road is used to determine all safety factors. The Council would like to allow staff to explore the options to remove the tank and have it salvaged off of the site before making any decisions. Removing the tank completely would solve the long and short term effects associated with this road. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton made the motion to begin a risk assessment study and the temporary patching repairs necessary to improve the integrity of the lower half of road with the possible addition of “authorized personnel only” signs and posts along the road’s edge. Motion seconded by Councilmember Davis and carried.
MOTION. Councilmember Davis moved that the meeting adjourn. Motion seconded by Councilmember Nielson and carried.
Meeting adjourned at 7:34 p.m.
