Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into professional engineering services agreements with EMH&T, Inc. for the Morningstar/North-Forty and Circuit 30 Street Lighting Upgrade Improvements Projects, for the Division of Power.

DESCRIPTION: These two (2) projects are from a total of eight (8) the Division of Power advertised under the 2018 Streetlight Design Project Request for Proposals. The proposed streetlights will incorporate LED technology that will generate savings in electric energy and long-term maintenance which will be a significant economic impact and reduce greenhouse gases to the environment. Additionally, the proposed projects will greatly improve the aesthetics of the affected areas.

Morningstar / North-Forty Street Lighting Improvements (CIP 670860):
This project will involve the design of an underground street lighting system with decorative post top LED lights and will also incorporate the replacement of five (5) existing underground light poles in the area. A new street lighting circuit will also be designed for this area as a result.

The community planning area is “52 - Westland” and includes the following streets: Sullivant Avenue, Coral Gate Drive, Wild Stallion Drive, and Galloway Road.

Circuit 30 Street Lighting Improvements Upgrade (CIP 670871):
This project will involve the re-design of the total replacement of street lighting Circuit #30. The project will separate the overhead lighting and underground lighting into 2 circuits, as they currently exist as one (CKT #30).

The community planning area for this project is “41 - Northeast”.

TIMELINE: The term of both engineering agreements is for 1 year and is expected to end November 2019.

PROJECT AMOUNTS:

Morningstar / North-Forty Street Lighting (670860): $93,739.45
Circuit 30 Street Lighting Improvements Upgrade (CIP 670871): $145,309.58
