Title: To authorize the Director of Recreation and Parks to modify the contract with Kramer Engineers for engineering services to make renovations to the existing Ponds and Cascades at Franklin Park; and to authorize a modification amount of $111,980.00 for total expenditure of $260,480.00.

Explanation
This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to modify the contract with Kramer Engineers for engineering services to make renovations to the existing Ponds and Cascades at Franklin Park.

Background: Phase I work included engineering services associated with the new pump house that currently operates the cascades. The original Phase II scope addressed the cascades between the two ponds. Understanding that the ponds are failing, this modification expands the Consultant’s scope of design services to include the improvements to both the upper and lower ponds. A simultaneous design of both pond renovations with the cascades will allow for a uniform engineered plan that addresses the failing system as a whole. Additionally, including the pond work with the cascade renovations will allow a single contractor to complete the project in the 2019 construction season.
