Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of Task Order No. 4 with Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. for a total amount of $65,900.00.
The scope of Task Order No. 4 is to perform compliance monitoring services for the City Municipal Landfill for Fiscal Year 2008/2009, October 1, 2008 through September 30, 2009. Compliance monitoring will be performed according to the requirements of Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Permit No. SF35-0124377-01, and the requirements of the revised Monitoring Plan Implementation Schedule (MPIS) revised June 2, 2007.
The scope of this Task Order also includes Evaluation Monitoring required by FDEP for groundwater contamination at the landfill. Additional work that may be required by FDEP outside the work scope detailed in Task Order No. 4 is not included in the budget.
FDEP requires the City to perform this compliance monitoring, and as a result this is an ongoing annual cost to the City. The extent of the monitoring may decrease based on the threshold measurements obtained. It is also possible that FDEP may require increased compliance monitoring of threshold measurements.
This Task Order will be executed under an existing continuing services contract with Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. The existing continuing services contract will expire in May 2009 and cannot be renewed. This Task Order will be effective until September 30, 2009 to insure the compliance monitoring for fiscal year 2009 can be completed.
1. Authorize execution of Task Order No. 4 with Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc.; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
