Body

WHEREAS, on August 20, 2018 the Westside of the City of Madison experienced a very significant rain event with rainfall amounts ranging from 5 to 10 inches which fell in approximately 6 hours; and

WHEREAS, City Engineering received three (3) competitive bids for construction of the design solution agreed to with the neighborhood; and

 

WHEREAS, the resulting bids were approximately 1 million over budget; and

 

WHEREAS, a significant amount of the costs to construct this improvement involve the construction of a bridge equivalent span of box culverts;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that:

 

1.                     The following low bids for miscellaneous improvements be accepted and that the Mayor and City Clerk be and are hereby authorized and directed to enter into a contract with the low bidder contained herein, subject to the Contractor's compliance with Section 39.02 of the Madison General Ordinances concerning compliance with the Affirmative Action provisions and subject to the Contractor's compliance with Section 33.07 of the Madison General Ordinances regarding Best Value Contracting.

3.                     The 2019 Engineering-Major Streets and Stormwater Utility Capital Budgets are amended according to the fiscal note to cover the costs associated with infrastructure improvement necessary to implement the flood mitigation project known as the McKenna Boulevard Flood Mitigation and to transfer unused funds in the Stormwater Utility Water Quality budget to Citywide Flood Mitigation thus allowing remaining 2019 flood mitigation projects to be bid and constructed.
