A change order was approved for the current street project on North Lake Avenue by the Storm Lake City Council this week.
The order adds $6,730 to the contract, increasing the total to $1,078,614.
The additional costs come from extra excavating work required at 10th Street and North Lake for water main repairs as well as for a different type of intake.
* The council granted a noise variance for the upcoming Relay for Life, Aug. 2-3, at the Storm Lake High School track.
This year's event will run from 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 2, until 7 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3. This is the first year the event will be held overnight.
Relay organizers said they plan on notifying neighbors of the event.
