Title

Resolution to Extend the Contract with Precision Concrete, Inc. (Bid No. 4566) for the 2020 Sidewalk Repair Program ($196,001.00)

Memorandum

Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to extend the Construction Services Agreement with Precision Concrete, Inc. (“PCI”), Bid No. 4566, for the 2020 Sidewalk Repair Program.

 

During the past eight 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 2020.

 

This Contract’s work will consist of the horizontal cutting of sidewalk slabs that have “vaulted” or “displaced” joints that result in vertical displacements of between ½-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 $186.00 per slab (based upon a typical 5-foot wide sidewalk that is 4 inches thick). 

 

PCI was the low responsible bidder for the 2019 Sidewalk Repair Program, as well as being the Contractor selected for cutting sidewalks for the 2016, 2017, and 2018 Sidewalk Repair Programs. The 2019 contract can be renewed for up to four (4) years by mutual agreement, with the contractor required to hold its bid prices any renewals. City staff recommends PCI’s contract be extended for one (1) year for 2020 and requests the City Administrator be authorized to extend the contract up to three more years, subject to the availability of funding.

 

PCI 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 and Fiscal 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 locations at which the work is done.
