The city came up with bids bout $20,000 higher than the en- ;ineer's estimate, which coupled Tonneson Construction.

Mayor Frank Travis Jr. said the fiz.t step will be to contact (he Housing and YIome Finance Agency regional office in Seattle to see what they suggest. The HHFA is the federal agency which handles funds under the Aeceler- :ted Public Works program. This agency must approve the contract before the city can get the fed- eral money.

Davis Construe- increase the amount of mo](,y the city was putting in to brin 3 the amount of funds available up to the amount in the low bid Either of these courses would come up against the state law limiting the amount contracts can go over the engineer's estimate. City Attorney John Ragan was asked to check the state taw to see if it was applicable to this case. Both would require HHFA approval. The lower bids. he said, wer actually pretty good bids on the job. Part of the problem, he said, was that in figuring the estimate, he had to stay within the am- cmnt of money available. Also. he commented, that when the engin- eering work was done. it was dis- covered that for a very sn-mll ad- ditional cost. there could be con- siderable improvement in the sew- meat of deteriorated lines. When lhe job was originally planned, he said. it was to be just a replace- ment job. The proposed project would i]- elude installations on Cedar Street from east of Front Street to Third Street: Third Street from Cedar to the alley above Laurel Street and do\\;vn the alley between Lau- rel and Birch Streets for half a block; Fir:;t Street from the creek up 300 feet: Front Street from Cedar to Pine and a short section on Pine; the alley between Cedar and Pine Streets fron Sixth Street to Eighth Street and Eighth from there to the alley between Pine and Aider and down this alley about-half a block; Kneeland St. from Front St. to Second St. and across private propery to Healy Additioh and to Goldsborough Ad- dition; crossing at First Street in the vicinity of Goldsborough Creek mid the alley between 10th and llth Streets from Cote to Grove Streets. The replacement of these sewer lines \\;vould cut down on the am- ount of seepage water entering the city sewer system and putting added strain on the sewage treat- ment Dlant.

Reed building on the recommendation ot architect Steve Johnson. Oltman reported that the win- dows in the back of the Junior High School building were being broken out and told the board he believed the best solution would be to cover some of the windows with plywood. Oltman was asked to get esti- mates on the cost of replacing the present wooden steps on the walk- way from ML. View behind the Junior High with concrete. The steps are also subject to numer- ous instances of vandalism which at times leaves them in a danger- ous condition. Oltman reported that he had a contractor take a look at the root on the High Sclmol Gym and, he recommended that new roofing be installed before acoustical material was put on the ceiling. The board voted to send a letter of congratulations to Football Coach Bob Sund, lfis staff an0 team for the excellent job they did this 5'ear.
