The cost estimate will be prepared by the utility and submitted to the District in support of the utility agreement and plans required for the proposed work. An agreement assembly should include estimates covering only the work for clearing transportation project construction. Where elective betterments are considered, two estimates will be required:
- Anchor: #YBJBVRCQ
- one estimate showing the better facility to be constructed; and Anchor: #PFNCFBWL
- one estimate showing replacement in kind.
The utility’s accounting or billing section should review estimates prepared by engineers. In addition, the cost estimate must include a complete narrative of the scope of work. This will ensure that costing operations and final bill preparation will be compatible with the format of the estimate.
