Subject:                      Resolution authorizing Task Order No. 13 with Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. for services related to municipal landfill compliance gas and groundwater monitoring

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends execution of Task Order No. 13 with Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc., to provide municipal landfill compliance gas and groundwater monitoring for fiscal year 2012 for $47,800.00.

 

Analysis:

Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. is the Engineering firm the City has been using to perform compliance and monitoring services for the city of Leesburg Municipal Landfill, and the Closed Landfill.  The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) requires the City to perform this compliance monitoring, and as a result, this is an ongoing annual cost to the City.

 

The scope of work is to perform compliance monitoring services for the City Municipal Landfill for the 2012 fiscal year.  Compliance monitoring will be performed according to the requirements of the FDEP Permit No. SF35-0124377-001 and the requirements of the revised Monitoring Plan Implementation Schedule (MPIS) (revised July 6, 2009).  According to FDEP guidelines, sampling and monitoring of closed landfill sites will be required on a long-term basis.

 

This scope of services is contracted under the City’s existing continuing services contract for engineering services.  The existing continuing services contract was approved by resolution 8316 on October 27, 2008.

 

Options:

1.  Approve Task Order No. 13 with Jones Edmunds, Inc.; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Funds are budgeted and available in the current fiscal year.
