Explanation

This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with Righter Company for the Griggs Boathouse Stormwater BMP project.

Background: During construction of the Griggs Boathouse in 2009 the Stormwater components of the project were not able to be built per the approved Stormwater plans. As a result the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) inquired with our Department of Public Utilities Stormwater Division to verify compliance. Upon doing so it was discovered that the water quality features of the site did not meet the requirements set forth by the original design.

To correct the deficiencies noted by the EPA and to meet the requirements of the City’s Stormwater Manual the drainage features that exist at Griggs Boathouse need to be altered (pond resizing, ditch resizing) and other features need to be added (curb on paved areas, structures, additional ditches, and drainage pipe).

Bids were advertised through Vendor Services, in accordance with City Code Section 329, on November 8, 2019 and received by the Recreation and Parks Department on November 19, 2019. Bids were received from the following vendors:

Company Status Amount
Righter Company (MAJ) $74,950.00
McDaniel’s Construction (MBE) $122,000.00
GM General Contracting Co. (MAJ) Non-responsive

After reviewing the proposals that were submitted, it was determine that Righter Company was the lowest and most responsive bidder.

Righter Company and all proposed subcontractors have met code requirements with respect to prequalification, pursuant to relevant sections of Columbus City Code Chapter 329.
