Staff recommends execution of the agreement with Welch Tennis Courts, Inc. for $29,800.
The purpose of this project is to contract with a vendor to resurface the tennis courts at the Palmetto Street and Susan Street tennis complexes. In addition to the resurfacing, the contractor will also be removing abandoned cement light poles that could pose a safety hazard.
Each complex consists of four regulation size doubles courts which need to be resurfaced to repair cracks in the court surfaces. The resurfacing will prevent possible further and significant damage to the courts caused by water penetration through existing cracks and worn sealant. Prior to resurfacing the courts the vendor will remove the abandoned light poles, properly repair the holes, and resurface the entire court area at each complex. The project will also include repainting all net hardware before it is reinstalled.
On November 9, 2006 the Purchasing Division issued Invitation to Bid number 70061 soliciting interested and qualified firms to submit a quote for the tennis court resurfacing. On November 27, 2006 five bid responses were received. The bid tabulation is attached for your review. The responses were evaluated and Welch Tennis Courts, Inc. was deemed the lowest responsive and responsible bidder.
1. Approve the attached resolution authorizing the execution of the agreement with Welch Tennis Courts, Inc. for $29,800, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funds were budgeted in the current fiscal year. This project will be funded from the Parks and Recreation Improvement account as indicated.
