Staff recommends adoption of the resolution authorizing the execution of contract amendment number five with SMW Geosciences, Inc. for $27,300.00.
The City has a current competitively awarded contract with SMW Geosciences, Inc. (SMW), for the firm to provide professional engineering services through September 30, 2011.
Currently, SMW is performing services under a task order where the firm is providing the City with project management and permitting assistance services associated with a Consumptive Use Permit (CUP #94) sought from the St. Johns Water Management District (SJWMD).
Due to continuing negotiations and requirements by SJWMD, the Water Fund anticipates all the tasks related to obtaining the CUP cannot be accomplished within the amount of funds initially obligated for the project.
This amendment allows an additional $27,300.00 to be obligated to this project for continuing the project management and permitting assistance services associated with the Consumptive Use Permit. At this time, SJWMD has provided a verbal approval of our permit. The City does not expect any additional costs related to the permit application process.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing the execution of the contract amendment with SMW Geosciences, Inc.; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funding for the additional $27,300.00 is available in the Water Fund budget.
