Lacamas Lake Lodge project more expensive than expected
City Council will vote whether to accept higher state loan amount
Tuesday, June 11, 2013
The Lacamas Lake Lodge and Conference Center project is going to be more expensive than Camas city officials originally anticipated.
All four bids opened on May 13 were approximately $20,000 higher than the city engineer’s estimate of $1.79 million. Adding to the overall higher price tag for the project is fuel tank remediation work recently completed at the site. All told, Public Works Director Eric Levison said an additional $200,000 will be needed to fully fund the project.
The city had already secured a $1.65 million 10-year, 3 percent interest loan from the State of Washington LOCAL program. Another $350,000 is being provided by the Friends of the Camas Community Center.
