Title
Resolution to Approve an Agreement with the Downtown Development Authority for the Construction of the South University Streetscape Improvements Project ($310,687.36)
Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to authorize an agreement with the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority ("DDA") to participate in construction costs for the abandonment of water main during the DDA's South University Streetscape Improvements Project.

The DDA is improving the streetscape along South University Avenue between East University Avenue and Washtenaw Avenue. There is a redundant water main beneath the proposed work area. The removal of this water main is included in the City's Capital Improvements Plan. The City wishes to remove this water main as part of the DDA's project.

The DDA conducted a formal bid process and awarded a construction contract to the lowest responsible bidder, Fonson Company, Inc. ("Contractor"). Construction for this project is scheduled to begin in May 2017.

Construction cost responsibilities for different portions of the work are agreed in principal with the DDA, and these percentages will be used as a basis to determine the respective amounts that each party will pay towards the construction cost of the project. The DDA will have the contractual relationship with the Contractor, and the City will reimburse the DDA for its portion of the fees. The attached document outlines the terms of the agreement between the City and the DDA to complete the work described above.

Financial Impact
Funding for this work is available in the approved Water Supply System Capital Budget as part of CIP Project UT-WS-18-07.
