Explanation

1.0 BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with The Righter Co., Inc. for the Rinehart Public Utilities Complex Water Service Improvements & 910 Dublin Rd. Curb Repair Project; in an amount up to $341,239.50; for Division of Water Capital Improvements Project No. 690026-100020, Contract No. 2292.

Funds in the amount of $2,000.00 will also be encumbered with the Department of Public Service for Prevailing Wage services.

The curb repair work includes resetting an existing catch basin and the installation of french drains, trench drains, curb, sidewalk, and pavement replacement.

The Community Planning Area is “68 - Dublin Rd. Corridor”.
