Staff recommends approval of the first amendment with Annan Landscaping Company (Annan) to extend the existing contract thru September 30, 2012.
The City originally contracted with Annan in March 2008 for a 3 year period to provided landscape maintenance services along, and in, Highway 441 CR-473 to College Drive. This first amendment will extend the contract period through September 30, 2012. The original agreement provides for the City to renew in writing additional one year periods at the City’s option. The first amendment is for a period longer than one year so contract expiration will coincide with the end of the fiscal year.
Extension of this contract would allow for uninterrupted Highway 441 Landscape Maintenance services. Retaining the existing company would minimize confusion and cost by transferring to a new company. The City has received excellent service and dependability from Annan and would like to continue its relationship with this vendor.
1. Authorize execution of the first amendment with Annan Landscaping Company; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funds of $62,800.00 are budgeted in the 2011 fiscal year for these services. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will reimburse the City approximately $10,000 per year for maintaining the non-landscaped Bahia grass areas. This results in a net cost to the City of $50,880 per year for landscape maintenance services in this area.
