With only a few months left until the deadline from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to complete the city’s sewer project, the Sedalia City Council will review a change to the wastewater improvement portion during tonight’s meeting.

Council will review Change Order No. 1 from Sterling Excavation & Erection LLC for $243,502.50 for the Sedalia Wastewater Improvements North Relief Sewer Project.

According to information in the meeting packet, $225,000 of the change order is due to the condition of the sewer main located under the railroad. The rest of the change order will be used for the addition of a manhole and several service reconnections.

This extends the completion date from March 1 to March 30. Funds come from the sewer project’s $30 million budget.

Today’s meeting will begin with a public hearing for the Galaxy West Community Improvement District. Beginning at 7 p.m., time will be allowed for any public comments regarding the establishment of the proposed district, which is located behind the Galaxy Theater near U.S. Highway 50 and West Main Street and in front of the EconoLodge near Highway 50 and Winchester Road.

According to the meeting agenda, the public hearing is the first of two steps to establish the proposed district. If no objections are presented, the council will proceed with the establishment of the district at a future meeting.

Council will hear a presentation from Finance Director Kelvin Shaw and City Administrator Gary Edwards during the pre-council meeting regarding the Calendar Year 2015 operational and Fiscal Year 2017 budget preview.

• Review an ordinance approving an agreement with Pictometry International Corporation for the updating of aerial imagery associated with the city’s GIS project. The total cost to the city is $273,750, which includes three separate updates beginning in 2017 and continues to 2019 and 2021.

• Review a resolution approving and accepting a third addendum to the lease and operations agreement with Sierra Bullets.
