The City is beginning its sidewalk repairs for 2022. This year staff has reached out to concrete contractors to provide a square yard (SY) cost for sidewalk, removal, preparation, and installation. The lowest quote was received from Five Star Concrete at $135.00 per SY cost. Staff is estimating approximately 300 SY of sidewalk replacement throughout the year and is asking for a contract cost of $ 40,500.00.
The City Parking Lot Paving includes asphalt removal and asphalt overlay to the city owned parking lot at the intersection of 2nd and “D” Streets. Water patching is for repairs to water main leaks on Clay, Summit Drive, and Summit Drive. Diamond Asphalt was the low responsive bid for both quotes, so staff is recommending to combine the work under one contract with cost being paid by the Water Department and Light Department for their respective quote.
The Public Works Department desires to purchase e-Plan REVIEW (EPR) software. The EPR software is a cloud based collaborative platform for team-based electronic design review and plan review. EPR will increase efficiencies and decrease some expenditures by reducing printing, shipping, and storage expenses of paper building plans with online document uploads and concurrent, collaborative web-based electronic plan reviews. Additionally, the EPR platform is capable of being fully integrated with the plan review software currently utilized by the Building Department. The fee for project management, implementation, and training is $ 18,750.00 and the annual licensing fee is $ 12,000.00. The purchase of this product is eligible for and will be funded by ARPA funds.
The Public Works Department solicited bids from licensed contractors for the purchase and installation of fencing around Well #3 and Well #5, for the purpose of increasing security of the City’s water system. Columbia General Contracting submitted the lowest bids in the amounts of $ 35,933.54 for Well #5 and $ 12,764.85 for Well #3, for a combined total of $ 48,698.39 plus applicable tax. Staff is requesting a total appropriation of $ 58,300.00 to cover tax and contingency. This project is eligible for and will receive funding through ARPA.
