WOOD RIVKR — A special meeting of City Council members will he held next week to further discus* the proposed Jl,206.000 waterworks improvement program and set a bond election date. It was originally planned to name the bond election' date at the regular Council meeting Monday night, hut couticllmen felt they wanted more time to go over the questions tn the light of new cost figures. A revised summary of preliminary estimates of costs completed by the Warren and Van- Prague Consulting Engineer* ing firm of Decatur July 26 shows an increase from estimated total costs of $1,235,000 on May 6, 1959, to $1,266,000 currently. Reason for Hike One reason for the $31.000 estimated cost increase over the past 14 months is a change in the specifications to a different type of filtering system in the iron removal plant. The balance of increase Is due to higher, material and labor costs. A breakdown of the various items and their estimated costs within the program shows: Water Treatment plant (iron removal, gravity filters), $426.000; distribution system improvements, $189,000; one million gal Ion elevated storage tank, $206,000; source of supply, $303,000 totaling $1,124,000. Estimated legal fees are listed at $11,300, but it is explained in the engineering report that the actual cost of this item will be determined by the contract agreement for legal services entered into between the city and its sleeted legal counsel. A total of $5,800 if listed for damlnlstrative costs, which in dudes engineering planning, preparation of detailed plans, specifications and estimates of cost. The actual costs of these items will be the actual costs incurred by the city for such Items as printing and publications, telephone and telegraph, etc. Also listed on the estimated cost sheet is $69,400 for genera! engineering supervision of con struction. Aid in legal and financing proceedings service will be performed by the engineers without extra compensation. Resident Onspeotion Detailed resident inspection is estimated to cost' $20,000 by the Warren and VanPrauge firm, but the actual cost of this item will be dependent upon the man ner of employment of the resident engineer inspector and the period of construction for which such services are required, the report indicates. The city will have the option of instructing its engineers to furnish such services or to furnish such services itself. Land acquisition is estimated at $5,000, but the actual cost will be determined by the site selected and the amount which the city agrees to pay the owner for nay such selected site. The allowance for interest during construction is estimated at $32,000, but the actual COST! will be dependent upon thej amount of the revenue bond is j sue, and any contractural agree-1 ment made by the city with thej purchaser of the bonds, accord-: ing to Warren and VanPrague.; Bill Fischer, a bonding con-j sultant from Alton, spent time with City Council member* Monday following the regular meeting pointing out current trends of the bond market.
