Title

Resolution to Extend the Contract with CLI Concrete Leveling Inc. (“CLI”) (Bid No. 4523) for the 2019 Sidewalk Repair Program ($74,450.00)

Memorandum

Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to extend the Construction Services Agreement with CLI Concrete Leveling Inc. (Bid No. 4523) for the 2019 Sidewalk Repair Program.

 

During the past seven construction seasons, the Sidewalk Repair Program has repaired numerous sidewalks throughout the City. Beginning in 2017, the Program revisited neighborhoods where work had been performed in 2012. The attached map shows the areas of the City that will be targeted in 2019.

 

This Sidewalk Repair Program involves leveling sidewalk slabs that have “vaulted” or “displaced” joints that result in vertical displacements of between ½- and 1-inch, so that the City may avoid removal and replacement of otherwise good sidewalk slabs.  Based on the unit prices, leveling one concrete slab as opposed to replacing it, saves the City an average of about $171 per slab (based upon a typical 5-foot wide sidewalk that is 4 inches thick).  The work to be performed by CLI allows for the “lifting” of displaced slabs, and can help reduce water ponding issues in many cases.

 

CLI was the low responsible bidder for the 2018 Sidewalk Repair Program, as well as being a subcontractor for the 2016 and 2017 Sidewalk Repair Program. The 2018 contract could be renewed for two years by mutual agreement, with the contract required to hold its bid prices any renewals. City staff recommends CLI’s contract be extended for one year and requests the City Administrator be authorized to extend a second year, subject to the availability of funding.

 

CLI has submitted all required Non-Discrimination, Prevailing Wage, Living Wage, and Conflict of Interest Disclosure forms and complies with the requirements of the City’s Non-Discrimination, Prevailing Wage and Living Wage ordinances.

 

Budget Impact:  Funding for the Project comes primarily from the Street, Bridge, and Sidewalk Millage and is included in the approved capital budget.  Some additional funding from various departmental budgets may also be utilized, depending on the location at which the work is done.
