Staff recommends approval of an agreement with Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. to provide municipal landfill compliance gas and groundwater monitoring for fiscal year 2010 for $51,440.00.
Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. has been the engineering firm used by the City to perform compliance and monitoring services for the City of Leesburg Municipal Landfill and the Closed Landfill. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) requires the City to perform this compliance monitoring, and as a result this is an ongoing annual cost to the City.
The scope of work is to perform compliance monitoring services for the City Municipal Landfill for October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010. Compliance monitoring will be performed according to the requirements of the FDEP Permit No. SF25-0124377-01, and the requirements of the revised Monitoring Plan Implementation Schedule (MPIS) (revised July 6, 2009).
The scope of work also includes sampling of monitoring well I-2 at the “old dump” site west of the closed landfill, performed concurrently with the quarterly evaluation monitoring.
Staff request approval of this 1-year agreement for the 2010 Fiscal Year. According to DEP guidelines, this service will be required on a long-term basis. The Purchasing Division will issue a request for proposal to establish a long-term agreement for fiscal years 2011 through 2015. The new agreement will provide for an initial five-year term with an option for an additional 5-years extension. As with all City contracts, there will be a termination clause allowing the City to terminate the agreement should it be necessary.
