Staff recommends approval of Amendment No. 4 to provide a three-year contract extension for work relating to pavement and sidewalk maintenance and repairs.
The current contract with Superior Asphalt of Central Florida, Inc. (Superior) expires on December 31, 2006. Staff asked Superior to provide a one-year contract extension on the existing non-exclusive unit-price contract for a Public Works contract relating to pavement and sidewalk maintenance and repairs. Superior offered a three-year extension with a pricing adjustment to become effective on 1 January 2007 and annually thereafter. The first adjustment will be an increase of 3.5 %. Each subsequent adjustment will be for the lesser of 3.5% or the percentage change in the unadjusted Consumer Price Index. The proposed schedule of prices for 2007 is attached.
If approved, the contract extension will allow continuation of the on-call services for repairs to streets, sidewalks and curbs, that must be completed in a timely fashion but which exceed the limits of the current streets operation. It will also limit future annual price increases to no more than 3.5%.
The original contract was to Hewitt Power & Communications, Inc. for the purpose of privatization of the streets function of the City’s Public Works Department. Hewitt Power & Communications, Inc. subcontracted this work to Superior Asphalt of Central Florida, Inc. This is the fourth amendment to the original contract. Previous amendments have added services and provided a contract extension. This amendment will be the second contract extension.
1. Approve the contract extension, or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Repairs performed under this contract will be funded separately through individual project authorizations, as budgeted.
