AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           July 11, 2011

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an agreement with Professional Dirt Service, Inc. for the Peters Drive Rebuild construction services

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of an agreement with Professional Dirt Service, Inc. for $34,810.30.

 

Analysis:

The purpose of this project is to rebuild badly deteriorated sections of roadway along Peters Drive.  Peters Drive is generally located East of US Highway 441 and South of Griffin Road.  The area to be reconstructed is between Maugans Avenue and Glenridge Drive as shown in Figure 1.

 

Figure 1 - Peters Drive – Vicinity Map Showing Work Area

The road base in several areas along Peters Drive, totaling 276 lineal feet, have failed which in turn causes the street surface to begin failing and falling apart.  The contractor will furnish all labor, materials and equipment to rebuild these sections of road.

Rebuilding will consist of removing the existing asphalt and road base.  A new road base will be installed and compacted according to Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) specifications as shown in Figure 2.   New asphalt will be installed in the rebuilt areas and 25 feet on either side of the replaced sections.

Procurement Information:

On June 10, 2011, the Purchasing Division issued Invitation to Bid number 110281.  Notification of this opportunity was accomplished by posting the solicitation on-line at BidSYNC.com.  All responding vendors were ‘electronically invited’ to participate through the BidSYNC system.

 

On June 23, 2011, sealed bids were received from four prospective contractors.  Bids were evaluated by purchasing and public works staff.  Professional Dirt Service was deemed the lowest responsive and responsible bidder.  Past performance for Professional Dirt Service was verified by their successful job performance on past City projects requiring construction services.  Those projects are the Whispering Pines Ditch Enclosure and the Childs Street Rebuild.

 

The Local Business Enterprise (LBE) preference was not a factor in this bid evaluation as all bidders met the requirements of a LBE.
