Staff recommends approval of this agreement with Inwood Consulting Engineers, Inc. for design of the Leesburg-Wildwood Trail.
On August 11, 2008, the City Commission authorized an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for 100% funding of this design project. Staff advised the agreement for the design would be presented for City Commission approval at such time as the City received notice from FDOT the funding was available and encumbered for that purpose.
On October 20, 2008 FDOT issued a Notice-to-Proceed for this project which also provided notice to the City that FDOT funds of $264,000 had been encumbered for this project. A copy of the letter is attached. The agreement executed by the City on August 11, 2008 provides that the project must be completed by September 30, 2009.
This agreement with Inwood Consulting Engineers, Inc. was negotiated by staff in the interim period since August 11, 2008. It provides for the required scope of services to complete the design and establishes a lump-sum project budget of $264,000. This amount does not exceed the FDOT funding for the project; therefore, the City will incur no additional costs. The project will be completed by September 30, 2009 in accordance with the FDOT funding agreement.
1. Approve the agreement as presented; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
This agreement is 100% funded by FDOT funds. The City will incur some minor costs of staff time in the administration of the Agreement. The City incurs no obligation to construct the trail segments, now or in the future.
