Title
Resolution to Authorize Emergency Purchase Order with E.T. MacKenzie for Water Main Repair not to exceed $30,000.00
Memorandum
A failure occurred in the property owner's service lead at 1214 South University. Field Operations was unable to completely shut down the existing 6" water main, necessitating the installation of line stops. The City determined that the service should be transferred over to the newer 12" main nearby, due to the age of the 6" water main. The property owner had a contractor onsite to make the repairs. The City determined it would be more efficient and cost effective to utilize their contractor, E.T. MacKenzie to dig the locations for the line stops, and make the connection to the 12" water main.
