Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of an agreement with Professional Dirt Service, Inc. for $64,221.50.

 

Analysis:

This project will consist of reconstruction and realignment or straightening Childs Street from the Main Street intersection and continuing south for approximately 180 feet.  This realignment will take the slight curve out of the street.  New curbing, sidewalk and driveway aprons will also be installed in this segment.  Storm water inlets and structures will be installed as part of the new curbing.

 

Figure 1. Project Location

 

In the segment starting north of Magnolia St. and south to Pine St., the existing street will be resurfaced and new concrete sidewalk and driveway aprons installed.

Work can begin within 10 days following execution of the agreement and will be completed within 75 calendar days according to the terms of the agreement.

 

Procurement Information:

On June 21, 2010 the Purchasing Division issued Invitation to Bid number 100281.  The City advertised this opportunity in the Daily Commercial and posted on-line at BidSYNC.com.

 

On July 27, 2010 sealed bids were received from three contractors.  Bids were evaluated by purchasing and public works staff.  The low bidder’s past performance was verified with job performance being rated as good and remarks indicating the projects progressed smoothly.  The City has successfully worked with Professional Dirt Service on a prior storm water ditch enclosure project.
