Title
Report to Common Council on the City’s costs associated with self-performed Public Works Construction installing 100-FT of replacement water main and miscellaneous relocations and abandonments along Starkweather Creek Drive (AD 15).
Body
Per MGO 33.07(6)(a)(3); pursuant to the authority provided by Wis. Stat. § 62.15(1), public construction of the public water supply system may be done directly by the City without submitting for bids where the Water Utility General Manager has determined that the Utility has the resources, expertise and capacity to perform the work internally.

Additionally, per with MGO 33.07(b); whenever any work is done by the City under sub. (a), an accurate account of the cost of the public work, including the necessary overhead expenses, shall be prepared for the Board of Public Works. Once the work is completed, the Board of Public Works shall make a complete report of the work to the Council, stating in detail the items of cost and the total cost of doing the work. The City Clerk shall publish the report as a part of the proceedings of the Council.

In accordance with MGO 33.07(6)(a)(3), Madison Water Utility self-performed the installation of approximately 100-FT of replacement water main, new hydrants and miscellaneous relocations and abandonments along and adjacent to Starkweather Creek Drive. The new main and hydrants brought the area up to current regulatory standards and the relocations and abandonments resolved conflicts between existing utility facilities and proposed improvements with the City of Madison Contract 8572 Garver Path & Starkweather Drive Reconstruction project.

In accordance with MGO 33.07(b), Madison Water Utility costs incurred with this water main extension project totaled $49,889.47, at $321.86 per foot of water main installed, including fittings, appurtenances, relocations and abandonments.
