Randall OKs last payment for Knolls road project

A final payment of about $91,000 for road paving work in the Knolls neighborhood was approved by the Randall Town Board Thursday night.

The payment represented unanticipated overages in the cost of the project, said town Chairman Bob Stoll.

The overages resulted from field decisions made by the town’s supervising engineer to do some additional paving in areas that had deteriorated since the project was designed, Supervisor Randy Kaskin explained.

Town Board members weren’t happy about the additional cost, but several said they did feel the end result will be better.

“We actually got a better product with the way it was done,” said Supervisor Lauren Fox.

The Town Board  in September approved a bid by B.R. Amon of Elkhorn of $959,000 for the work to repair and resurface roads in the Knolls subdivision and other town roads in the northwest sector of the town.

Supervisor Robert Gehring raised the issue of resolving the ongoing problem of dissatisfaction with shoulder work done along 93rd Street also by B.R Amon. But other supervisors pointed out that is a separate issue and should not hold up the Knolls work payment.

The payment for the Knolls work was approved unanimously.
