AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           April 26, 2010

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of an agreement for construction services with Paqco, Inc. for the Fountain Lake Trail Extension and Parking Lot project

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends execution of the construction services agreement with Paqco, Inc. for extending the Fountain Lake Recreational Trail and adding a parking lot for a total amount of $57,000.00. 

 

Analysis:

Resolution 8575 was approved on December 14, 2009 awarding a contract for construction of the Fountain Lake Trail beginning at Canal Street and ending at 13th Street.  Lower than anticipated construction costs for  the original trail section has allowed for the design and construction of an additional parking lot and trail segment between 13th Street and U.S. 27.  Construction of this segment will allow the Fountain Lake Trail to connect with the Wild-Lee trail that is funded for construction through FDOT in FY 2010-2011.  Once completed, this connection will allow residents of west Leesburg to traverse the trail all the way into downtown. 

 

Design of the parking lot and extension were completed and a bid solicitation returned the results below.  There are sufficient funds in City recreation impact fees to construct these improvements.  Extension of the trail will also require a small amount of work on the storm water infrastructure.

 

For future phases of the Fountain Lake Trail, design is currently underway going east from Canal to Lake Street.  Design from Lake Street to Dixie Avenue will require acquisition of the 760 linear feet of former railroad right-of-way closest to Dixie.  Timing will be subject to funds availability.

 

Procurement Information
