19-2412. Combined improvements; contract; bids; warrants; payment; interest.

The contract shall be let and the improvements made in the same manner as required for street improvements. The city council or board of trustees of the village may direct the improvements to be made under a single contract or that separate bids be taken for the street improvement, installation of water mains and installation of sewers, but the aggregate of said contracts shall not exceed the estimate as shown in the ordinance creating the district. For the purpose of making partial payment as the work progresses warrants may be issued by the mayor and city council or the board of trustees of the village upon certificate of the engineer in charge showing the amount of the work completed and materials necessarily purchased and delivered for the orderly and proper continuance of the project in an amount not exceeding ninety-five percent of the cost thereof, which warrants shall be redeemed and paid from the amounts received on the special assessments or from the sale of bonds issued to pay the cost of the project as provided in section 19-2414. The city or village shall pay to the contractor interest, at the rate of eight percent per annum on the amounts due on partial and final payments, beginning forty-five days after the certification of the amounts due by the engineer in charge and approval by the governing body and running until the date that the warrant is tendered to the contractor.
