Whereas, the notice of public hearing stated that the initially determined maximum estimated cost to said Water Improvement Area was $1,096,365, and the adopted Public Interest Order stated that the maximum amount proposed to be expended by the Town of Ithaca for the Improvement is $1,096,365; and

Whereas, because of anticipated increased material and construction costs in 2022, the Town Engineer has prepared a new estimate of cost in a memo that amends the map, plan and report for the Improvement by increasing the maximum estimated cost to the Water Improvement Area from $1,096,365 to $1,261,700; and
