Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Finance and Management to enter into a contract on behalf of the Office of Construction Management with J. B. & Company, Inc. for the replacement of the North Market roof. The current roof at the North Market is beyond its useful life, has been repaired a number of times, and must be replaced to ensure Market operations and activities will continue safely. This new roof will have a 30 year warranty.
The North Market is Central Ohio’s last remaining public market since (operating since 1876) and is heavily visited by residents, tourists, and conventioneers. The current Market was purchased by the City in 1992, and then renovated in partnership with the City and private entities. Annually more than 1 million people visit the North Market making it one of the most successful public markets in the country and a significant economic engine and attraction for central Ohio.
The work will be performed in cooperation with the North Market Development Authority and the merchants; however, due to the scope of this work, some business interruption and customer inconvenience will be impossible to avoid.
Finance and Management is working with the North Market Development Authority to renegotiate the property lease for the Market. The term of the current lease ends in 2015; however, the City and the Authority Board are in agreement that there is a need to revisit and reestablish an appropriate capital reserve for future renovations and upgrades to the Market, as well as to explore maintenance responsibilities in hopes of achieving operational efficiencies.
Formal bids were solicited and four companies submitted bid on June 25, 2014 as follows (0 FBE, 0 MBE):

J. B. & Company, Inc. $1,080,841.00
