Greening efforts at the old county landfill concluded in December, a year and a half after the Eco Station construction contract was awarded in the amount of $6,698,000.
Environmental Services Director Regina Wheeler was in White Rock for Tuesday night’s meeting, during which she updated councilors on the project.
Wheeler started out by saying that the project had been long, methodical and systematic. She also said that $502,000 had been spent on detail and design, while the total budget when the project first started out was set at $6.5 million.
At that time, the budget included money for a construction inspector, geotechnical testing, major utility duct bank relocation, construction and 6 percent contingency.
However, in August 2008 the project budget was increased by $190,000 to cover an increase in the cost of asphalt and adjust the construction contingency budget to 10 percent, which resulted in a total budget project of $6,698,000.
Aside from having to make adjustments to the budget, staff also faced obstacles with the construction, itself.
