Title

Resolution to Approve Change Order No. 1 with Strawser Construction, Inc. for the 2017 Street Surface Treatment Project (ITB No. 4478; $100,000.00)

Memorandum

Attached for your review and consideration for approval, please find a change order to the City’s construction contract with Strawser Construction, Inc. for the 2017 Street Surface Treatment Project, in the amount of $100,000.00.  This change order allows for additional asphalt-patching work on the minor (local) street network to address areas of deteriorated pavement resulting from the harsh weather conditions experienced over the past winter season. It also may potentially allow for pavement preservation work on one or more additional local streets not included as part of contract work.

 

Budget Impact

The current City of Ann Arbor Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) includes the Annual Capital Preventative Maintenance Program, which comprises this project and one for crack sealing streets citywide. These projects coupled with that for the Annual Street Resurfacing Program are vital to the continued improvement of the City’s street network.  Funding for this change order is available in the approved FY 18 Local Street Fund operations and maintenance budget.

 

Strawser Construction, Inc. complies with the City’s Non-Discrimination, Living Wage Ordinances, and Prevailing Wage Ordinances.
