The original agreement for renovating the previous Good Western Lender was $1,365,300 with an additional $100,000 in contingency funds for anticipated modify orders.
Metropolis council authorized a flurry of change orders at its Dec. 14 meeting of $93,319 included to the project’s construction funds.
