Explanation

1.0 BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with Kenmore Construction Co., Inc. for the Dublin Road Water Plant (DRWP) Standby Power Project, in an amount up to $10,681,257.50, for Capital Improvements Project No. 690520-100000, Division of Water Contract Number 2075.
