Glencoe council hears Armstrong news

The Glencoe City Council approved a work order and change order for the Armstrong Avenue project during its regular meeting Monday night.
 
Short Elliot Hendrickson (SEH) Project Manager John Rodeberg said a work order needed to be approved for the replacement of a pipe by Highway 212 that was approved at the council’s April 18 meeting. 
 
Records from the county, state and Buffalo Creek Watershed showed a 72-inch pipe in the area, but Rodeberg said crews discovered the pipe stops on the south side and continues in a 4-foot by 4-foot precast pipe. The funds for replacement will come from the project’s contingency fund.
 
Council Member Allen Robeck asked if the professional liability in the city’s contract with SEH would come into play here. He said he mentioned this issue at earlier meetings and thought SEH should pay for some of the replacement costs. 
 
Rodeberg said SEH had three references about the pipe. He said the city would still have to replace the pipe whether it was discovered before or after the project began, so liability would not apply.
