MEETING DATE:   July 13, 2009

 

FROM:                       Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

SUBJECT:                  Resolution Authorizing Execution of a Contract Amendment with

                                    Jones, Edmunds & Associates, Inc. for Engineering Services as

                                    Established in the contract amendment

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing the execution of contract amendment # 1 with Jones, Edmunds & Associates, Inc. (JEA) for a Stormwater Data Inventory analysis for development of the City’s Stormwater Geo-database (GDB) for a total amount of $75,170.00.

 

 Analysis:

The City has an existing professional services agreement with JEA to provide engineering services for City requirements.  The original agreement was approved under resolution 8316 October 27, 2008.

 

Jones Edmunds & Associates (JEA) will help the City complete the development of the stormwater GDB by developing a more complete and connected stormwater network for asset management and modeling functions which will begin with this 4-square mile project. 

 

When the pilot area project is complete JEA will provide the City with a proposal to complete the system-wide stormwater inventory.  Similar GDB’s are being used in addressing pollutant discharge in compliance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Stormwater permitting program; potential flooding concerns; and managing stormwater system resources.

 

The GDB can be maintained and used for studies, and as a tool for decision making for stormwater related projects.

 

Options:

  1. Approve the attached resolution authorizing the execution of the contract amendment # 1 with Jones, Edmunds & Associates, Inc., or
  2. Such alternative action the Commission may deem approriate. 

 

Fiscal Impact:

This project will be funded by the Stormwater utility.  Funds have been budgeted and are available in the account listed.
