CENTERVILLE -- The city council officially approved a funding agreement recently with Utah Department of Transportation for improvements on the northeast corner of 1250 West and Parrish Lane.
The council conceptually approved the agreement Sept. 6 and authorized the mayor to sign it after staff reviewed it.
Work has not started yet, so staff brought the agreement to the council for it to review and approve.
UDOT requires the agreement to be a lump-sum one, meaning UDOT will give a specific amount and the city will complete the work. It is not a reimbursement of actual costs.
Despite this, the $37,500 is expected to be sufficient to cover the construction bid of $34,139.20, according to a summary report.
There is also a roughly 8 percent cost for engineering and $700 for a cultural resources survey required by UDOT before work can begin, and UDOT's lump sum should be able to cover that.
If the project exceeds the funding, staff say it could be covered by the city's RDA.
