Typo costs Green River $20,000


February 21, 2018

A missing zero will cost the city $20,000 according to a change order approved by the Green River City Council Tuesday night.

The change order is for the Hitching Post Drive Reconstruction Project.

Mark Westenskow, public works director, said a typographical error in the bid form resulted in the problem. Council documents state that a line item for a new concrete sidewalk was off by a factor of 10, with the bid document calling for 1,560 square feet of concrete as opposed to the needed 15,600 square feet.

The funding comes from sixth-penny improvement tax funds originally approved in 2012. Westenskow said the project, including the change order, will be under budget due to approximately $26,000 in savings throughout the project.
