Resolution to Award the Contract for the Geddes Road Water Main Project to Fonson Company, Inc. in the amount of $1,755,188.50 (ITB 4656)
Attached for your approval is a resolution to award a contract to Fonson Company, Inc. in the amount of $1,755,188.50, for the construction of the Geddes Road Water Main project.

This project will replace approximately 3,000 feet of deteriorated water main on Geddes Road between Windycrest Drive and Earhart Road with new 16-inch water main. Geddes Road will be resurfaced with new asphalt in the construction area. Construction is scheduled to start in early June 2021 and to be completed at the end of August 2021.

Due to the limited workspace on this relatively narrow road, during construction one-way traffic will be maintained on Geddes Road in the eastbound direct for local traffic only. All through traffic will be detoured using Huron Parkway, Glazier Way, and Earhart Road.

Plans and specifications were advertised through BidNet (ITB 4656). Five bids were received and opened on April 6, 2021. The lowest responsible bid was submitted by Fonson Company, Inc. in the amount of $1,755,188.50. A summary of the bids is attached. Fonson Company, Inc. has previously completed similar projects in the City and is knowledgeable of the City's construction standards. Fonson Company complies with the requirements of the non-discrimination, responsible bidder, and living wage ordinances.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: The approved Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) includes the Geddes Road Water Main Project (UT-WS-20-25). Funding is available in the approved Water Supply System Fund Capital Budget.
