Resolution to Award the Contract for the 2016 Sidewalk Cutting to Sidewalks Plus USA (ITB No. 4418, $197,940.00)
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to award a Contract to Sidewalks Plus USA in the amount of $197,940.00 for the 2016 Sidewalk Cutting.

Budget Impact
The project is an anticipated annual expenditure and will be funded from the approved FY 16 Street Resurfacing and Sidewalk Repair Millage capital budget.

The 2016 Ramp & Sidewalk Repair Project consists of the repair of deficient sidewalks in approximately 20% of the City as part of the final year of a 5-year program to perform maintenance on the City's entire sidewalk system.

The work of this agreement is the horizontal cutting of sidewalk slabs that have "vaulted" or "displaced" joints. By horizontally cutting sidewalk that is in otherwise good condition, the City can avoid its removal and replacement. Based on the current unit prices that received from the contractor for this year's ramp and sidewalk project, the cutting of one transverse joint that is vaulted will save the City about $170.00 (based upon a typical 5' wide sidewalk that is 4" thick) per location on average. The scope of the cutting is to cut vaulted sidewalk slabs where the vertical displacement is greater than 1/2" in height. Vertical displacements greater than 1" in height are considered to be too large for cutting and are generally planned to be removed and replaced with new sidewalk.

Project specifications were distributed electronically to contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers. Two bids were received and opened on February 25, 2016. The lowest responsible bid, in the amount of $197,940.00 is approximately $42,060.00 lower than the engineer's estimate of $240,000.00. A tabulation of the bids is also attached.

Sidewalks Plus USA is complies with the requirements of the Nondiscrimination and the Living Wage Ordinances.
