Title
Resolution to Approve Amendment No. 1 to the Contract with Hubbell, Roth & Clark, Inc. for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Headworks Improvement Project, RFP No. 19-12 ($291,668.00, Total Contract Amount $769,088.53)
Memorandum
Your approval is requested for Amendment No. 1 to the Professional Services Agreement with Hubbell, Roth & Clark, Inc. (HRC) in the amount of $291,668.00 for additional engineering services related to the Headworks Improvement Project at the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).

An odor study for the Ann Arbor WWTP area was performed in 2018 and 2019 by HDR, Michigan, Inc. (HDR) to address ongoing nuisance odor complaints from WWTP neighbors.
