The following is a preview of the July 17 City Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall in Council Chambers. You may view the full agenda here.
Providing support for three fast-tracked street improvement projects, Public Works is requesting an agreement with RKA Consulting Group to provide engineering support for the following street projects: Pavement rehabilitation:
The second project includes engineering design, construction management and post-construction services for phase five of the 2018-19 CDBG program:
Finally, the agreement includes the design of the 2018-19 Minor Street Resurfacing Project, which includes resurfacing and repaving work:
RKA is a pre-qualified consultant for the City that has the expertise and experience needed to carry the scope of work for these projects. The company has also served as the construction manager for the first four phases of the CDBG Street Improvement Project, with extensive knowledge about the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s requirements for CDBG projects. This project management support is needed to augment City staff to ensure quality assurance and cost control.
These projects are being fast-tracked in order to utilize remaining funding from the I-Bank loan. The City Council is requested to approve $34,100 alongside a contingency fee of 10% for the agreement with RKA. In addition, Public Works is also requesting $83,957.50 to fund the CDBG and minor street resurfacing projects for a total amount of $118,057.50. It’s important to note that CDBG funds will not be used to fund project services.
