Resolution to Award a Construction Contract to Precision Concrete, Inc. for the 2019 Sidewalk Repair Program ($147,001.00)
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to award a construction contract to Precision Concrete, Inc. ("Precision") in the amount of $147,001.00 for work that is part of the 2019 Sidewalk Repair Program (Bid No. 4566).

Precision's work will consist of cutting select sidewalk joints in approximately 20% of the City in 2019, as part of the third year of a 5-year program to repair or maintain the City's sidewalk system. The attached map depicts the areas up for maintenance or repair in 2019. In particular, Precision will horizontally cut sidewalk slabs that have "vaulted" or "displaced" joints that result in vertical displacements of between 1/2-inch and 1-inch, so that the City may avoid removal and replacement of otherwise good sidewalks. Based on the unit prices, cutting one concrete slab as opposed to replacing it, saves the City an average of about $157 per slab (based upon a typical 5-foot wide sidewalk that is 4 inches thick). 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 14, 2019, in the amount of $147,001.00. While the prices for this work went up from previous years, performing this work still represents a significant savings over replacing sidewalk slabs.

Precision has completed sidewalk cutting work in the City for the past six years and has performed well during that time.

This contract may be renewed for four additional years upon mutual agreement, with Precision having to hold its bid prices steady. City staff requests that the City Administrator be authorized to extend the contract four additional years, in one year increments, until 2023, subject to the availability of funding, as allowed for in the 2019...
