The subject proposal is to amend the Six-Year Capital Improvement Program for Whatcom County Facilities (Appendix F of the Whatcom County Comprehensive Plan) by adding the following projects to Chapter 11 – Improvements to Existing Buildings:
1. Courthouse - replace exit lighting;
2. Central Plaza Building - replace four gas packs on the roof;
3. Central Plaza building - envelope patch and repaint; and
4. Paint throughout County buildings.
In addition, amendments to existing Chapter 11, County Courthouse improvement projects (Items No. 3 & 5) are proposed to modify source of funding, projected costs, and timeframe for expenditure of funds on these items.
Also proposed are amendments to Chapter 12 – Costs by Project Category, to reflect changes in costs that would occur if amendments to Chapter 11 are adopted.
