Item No: 4.C.4.
Meeting Date: July 23, 2012
From: Doug Drymon, Deputy City Manager/Interim Airport Manager
Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of Amendment No. 1 to Task Order No. 6 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc., for additional engineering services associated with the removal of wetland that has been mitigated as part of the Taxiway “A” Realignment Project at Leesburg International Airport.
Staff recommends approval of Amendment No. 1 to Task Order No. 6 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc.
On October 10, 2011 the City Commission authorized execution of Task Order No. 6 with Hanson Professional Services for the purpose of securing engineering services in connection with a project intended to realign Taxiway “A” at Leesburg International Airport to conform to current FAA safety standards. A portion of this project involves the removal of mitigated wetland along the northern edge of the existing taxiway and backfilling the resulting excavation with good soil. As additional grant funding becomes available in the future from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and FDOT, the City will proceed with the construction work necessary to realign the existing “jog” in Taxiway “A” over this former section of wetlands.
In the intervening time period between the date that Task Order No. 6 was approved and now, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) have issued several additional requirements and standards applying to the project. The engineering work required to address these additional requirements and standards (outlined in Attachment A – Scope of Services) has in turn necessitated a change in the project fee schedule previously submitted by Hanson. The additional fees, totaling $18,262.00, are broken out in Attachment B – Fee Summary.
1. Approve Amendment No. 1 to Task Order No. 6 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc.
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Total fees for Hanson’s services under the original Scope of Work which was approved as part of Task Order No. 6 amounted to $88,710.00. Undertaking the additional work called for under Amendment No.1 will result in the City incurring a further fee from Hanson of $18,262.00. Hanson’s revised fee schedule will now amount to $106,972.00, sourced as follows:
FAA (95%) $101,623.40
FDOT (2.5%) $ 2,674.30
City (2.5%) $ 2,674.30
The 2011-2012 Airport Drawdown schedule reflects a roll-over amount of $313,324.00 available for the removal of the mitigated wetland. Following approval of Amendment No. 1 to Task Order No. 6, the cost breakdown for the project will be as follows:
$ Amount Date Approved
Hanson Task Order #6 $ 88,710.00 10-10-11
C. W. Roberts $128,732.00 5-14-12
Hanson Amendment #1 $ 18,262.00
A change order would be required to increase the existing purchase order in the amount of $18,262. The budget is available.
