Project Description

This project includes separate areas of work, which were combined into one contract for cost saving purposes. The three locations included are as follows:

* John Street - Construction of a new sewer connecting to John Street and abandonment of old rear yard sewer.
* South Blvd - Replacement of an old deteriorated 4-inch water main with a new 8-inch water main to improved water quality.
* Huron Street - Replacement a deteriorated section of storm sewer, west of First Street.

The City published plans and specifications through its procurement website and and received four bids on May 12, 2020. Mackenzie was the lowest responsible bidder at $861,457.60, which is 14% below the Engineer's Estimate. A summary of the bids is attached.

Mackenzie 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 and Living Wage ordinances.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: The current Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) includes funding for the John Street Sanitary Sewer (UT-SN-20-14) and the South Boulevard Water Main (UT-WS-01-30). Per the existing agreement with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), the Huron Street Storm Sewer repair will be completed by the City's contractor and the costs will be reimbursed to the City by MDOT.
