WAYLAND — Reconstruction costs of the Cummings Street project increased, thanks to the Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT), the Wayland City Council learned Wednesday night.

Because Cummings Street joins Iowa Highway 78, IDOT concrete specifications had to be met at the junction of the street and highway, according to City Clerk Bev Conrad. The change order of $11,957.52 for the additional concrete was approved by the council.

Council members also accepted the $4,370 bid of Tullett Fence Co. of Ottumwa for re-installing fencing bordering the WACO High School track. The fencing was in the city’s right-of-way easement and had to be removed to accommodate the work on Cummings Street.

In a final Cummings Street matter, the council approved extending the construction completion date to Aug. 31. Project general contractor Jones Contracting Corporation of West Point requested the extension, noting that it had to delay its start date until the end of the 2016-17 school year.

A second reading amending the city’s zoning ordinance in the industrial parks was approved. The amendment expands the scope of commercial uses allowed in the parks.

Building permits were approved for Corey Farmer, in-ground 50x20-foot vinyl swimming pool; and Sharon Stauffer, new home.

Wayland council members meet again in regular session Wednesday, Aug. 16, at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall.
