Resolution to Award a Construction Contract ("Contract") to CLI Concrete Leveling Inc. ("CLI") (Bid No. 4523) for the 2018 Ramp and Sidewalk Repair Project ("Project") ($66,500.00)
Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to award the Contract to CLI Concrete Leveling Inc. in the amount of $66,500.00 for part of the Project.

Part of the Project will consist of leveling select sidewalks in approximately 20% of the City in 2018, as part of the second year of a 5-year program to perform repair or maintenance on the City's sidewalk system. The attached map depicts the areas up for maintenance or repair in 2018.

This Contract's work will include leveling sidewalk slabs that have "vaulted" or "displaced" joints that result in vertical displacements of between 1/2- and 1-inch, so that the City may avoid removal and replacement of otherwise good sidewalks. Based on the City's sidewalk-replacement contractor's unit prices, leveling, as opposed to replacing, one concrete slab will save the City an average of about $171.00 (based upon a typical 5' wide sidewalk that is 4" thick). Vertical displacements greater than 1" are too large for leveling and are generally planned to be removed and replaced with new sidewalk.

While this Contract is based on unit prices, actual construction quantities may vary. Project specifications were distributed electronically to contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers. One bid was received and opened on February 2, 2018, in the amount of $66,500.00. Staff evaluated the bid and found it to be reasonable and in line with current market prices.

CLI has completed sidewalk-leveling work in the City for the past two years as a subcontractor and, based on that experience, should be able to meet the Project's requirements. By awarding this work as a separate contract, the City will save approximately $20,000.00 in 2018.

CLI has submitted all required Non-Discrimination, Prevailing Wage, Living Wage, and Conflict...
