Council appropriation of an additional $14,643.45 to in order to allow rain-for-rent to provide bypass services for phase 2 of the Wastewater Treatment Plant Hydraulic Control Structures Improvements during construction.
On March 19, 2020 , the City Council awarded a contract in the amount of $234,000.00 to Euro Style Management, 3600 Madison Ave., #51B, N. Highlands, CA 95660 for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Hydraulic Control Structures project including a contingency of 10% ($23,400.00) be included in the Council action to cover any unforeseen incidentals for a total construction contract authorization amount of $257,400.00.
Prior to the start of Phase 1, staff discovered that the quote that was provided to the City by rain-for-rent in early 2019 did not include cost for the phase 2 bypass as well as prevailing wage rates. In order to avoid using all the contingency money staff wanted to bring this back to council during the early stages of the project in case something comes up once the hydraulic boxes are open.
Staff is requesting an additional appropriation of sewer funds in the amount of $14,643.45 to cover the cost of phase 2 of Rain-for-Rent's bypass service and for the difference in the phase 1 quote that did not incorporate prevailing wage rates which is required for all public projects.
- None at this time as these costs are essential to bypassing the raw sewer during construction.
