Marysville City Council reviews KDOT award

Marysville City Council met on Thursday evening after they failed to have a quorum on their regular Monday meeting time.  At the August 23rd meeting the council approved the acceptance of a KDOT Transportation Enhancement Project Award from Broadway, through City Park, to Highway 77 by way of the rail bed.  According to the printed agenda item summary KDOT has taken the position that the curb and guttering would not be included as part of the path.  The current estimates for the cost of the needed curb and gutter work are 22,500 dollars which would be paid by the city.  KDOT has also increased the project award to 383,853 dollars which includes construction and administration costs.  The Federal match remains at 80% of participating costs with a maximum of 300,000 dollars.  The city would be responsible for the 20 percent match which, according to these estimates, would be approximately 76,771 dollars. The match plus the 22,500 dollars for curb and gutter work will place the cities’ project cost at approximately 99,000 dollars.  City Clerk Debbie Priced said these numbers are estimates and the actually numbers will not be known until bids for the work are received.
