The mayor and city commissioners passed an ordinance Tuesday for a design agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.</p><p>The city says the corps released a feasibility report in 2010 outlining a series of projects to improve the wall’s reliability and to restore its system performance, which includes updates to the floodwall’s 12 pump stations. The entire rehabilitation is estimated to cost $20 million. The design phase is expected to cost $600,000, with the city paying $150,000 of that sum.
