Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify an existing contract with Precision Concrete Cutting, Inc., to add funds in the amount of up to $4,560.00, for the Pedestrian Safety Improvements-Sidewalk Trip Hazard Repair 2016 project.

This contract was bid as a one year contract with two one-year renewal options. The original list of sites to service was reduced to match the available funding. This is an unplanned modification to increase contract funding in the amount of $4,560.00 in order to pay for additional work sites added to the contract.

The project work consists of removal of trip hazards resulting from a difference in the elevation of abutting sidewalk panels within the corporation limits of the City of Columbus. The method of repair for this contract will be by saw cutting the panel horizontally to eliminate vertical difference and result in a smooth uniform surface. Collection and removal of resulting debris is included as part of the repair and incidental to that work. Any resulting crack or void of ½” or greater is to be filled with an approved material. This method is faster and considerably less expensive than removing sidewalk panels and replacing them.

Precision Concrete Cutting, Inc. still has remaining work to complete on this project. It is most cost effective to have them finish the remaining work sites and punch list work and make these fixes at the same time. The modification will save time and construction fees as opposed to initiating a procurement effort for another construction contract specific to this project.

The original contract amount: $100,000.00 (PO014511, Ord. 1427-2016)
The total of Modification No. 1: $20,000.00 (PO037476, Ord. 2562-2016)
The total of Modification No. 2: $125,000.00 (PO060299, Ord. 0670-2017)
The total of Modification No. 3: $15,000.00 ...
