Title

Resolution to Approve Change Order No. 7 with E. T. Mackenzie Company for the Hoover, Greene, Hill Improvement Project ($750,000.00)

Memorandum

Attached for your approval is a change order to the Construction Contract with E. T. Mackenzie Company (“EMC”), Bid No. 4563, for the Hoover, Greene, Hill Improvement Project.

 

The Project includes street resurfacing, water main replacement, stormwater improvements to reduce adverse impacts on Allen Creek, geometric changes to the Greene and Hoover intersection to improve pedestrian safety, new accessible sidewalk ramps, curb and gutter replacements, and some drainage structure replacements. Work commenced in May 2019 and is scheduled to be completed in November 2019.

 

During the course of the work, naturally high levels of arsenic and selenium were found in the existing soils, thus requiring the disposal of spoils to a certified landfill from trenches for installation of water main, storm sewer, and some road work. The primary purpose of Change Order No. 7 is to pay for the additional costs associated with this work.

 

Change Order No. 7 is for $750,000.00, increasing the total authorized amount of the contract to $5,912,190.00. Change Orders No. 1 through 6 were previously approved administratively within the Council authorized contingency for other contract adjustments and balancing of quantities. Change Order No. 7 will exceed that authorization, and thus requires Council approval.

 

EMC complies with the City’s Non-Discrimination and Living Wage Ordinances.

 

Budget Impact:  Funding for this change order is available and will be funded by the following sources: Water Supply Capital Budget ($442,500.00), Street, Bridge & Sidewalk Millage Capital Budget ($135,000.00), and Stormwater Capital Budget($172,500.00).
