Staff recommends execution of the agreement with Joseph Tomlinson Construction, Inc. for $48,650.00.
The purpose of this project is to increase the sleeping quarters area at Fire Station #4. Lake County originally constructed the building to house a two member crew and is now grossly undersized for the number of crew members on a shift. The station is shared by four City of Leesburg firefighters and two members from Lake/Sumter EMS.
This addition will provide 520 square feet to the station to be used for sleeping quarters. The existing sleeping quarters will be converted to an office area and storage.
Due to the small size and budget of this project, staff determined a design/build request for proposal would be the most effective. The Purchasing Division issued Request for Proposal 70232 on April 23, 2007. Of the three responses received May 25, 2007, staff deemed the proposal submitted by Joseph Tomlinson Construction, Inc. the most responsive and best met the needs and budget requirements of the City. A tabulation sheet is attached for your review.
1. Approve execution of the agreement with Joseph Tomlinson Construction, Inc.; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
An amount of $50,000 was budgeted and is available in the current fiscal year for this project.
