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.

 

This project will add a master water meter and backflow prevention to the water service line that feeds the 910 Dublin Rd. complex. Currently there is only a master meter and backflow preventer for the 910 Dublin Rd. building which would be removed once the new ones are installed.

 

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”.

 

2.0 ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT:

The Ohio EPA requires all non-residential water customers to have backflow prevention for their water service. Some of the buildings in the complex do not have backflow prevention or metered water service.  This project will address this regulatory compliance issue.  Installation of a master water meter and backflow prevention will ensure the whole complex has the required backflow prevention and that all water usage is metered.

 

3.0 CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT AWARD:  The Director of Public Utilities publicly opened two (2) bids on June 17, 2020 from The Righter Co., Inc. and John Eramo & Sons, Inc.

 

3.1 PRE-QUALIFICATION STATUS: The Righter Co. and all proposed subcontractors have met code requirements with respect to pre-qualification, pursuant to relevant sections of Columbus City Code Chapter 329. 

 

Righter’s bid was deemed the lowest, best, most responsive and responsible bid in the amount of $341,239.50.  Their Contract Compliance Number is 31-0889208 (expires 12/17/21, Majority) and their DAX Vendor Account No. is 4433.  Additional information regarding both bidders, description of work, contract time frame and detailed amounts can be found on the attached Information form.

 

Searches in the Excluded Party List System (Federal) and the Findings for Recovery list (State) produced no findings against The Righter Co., Inc.

 

4. FISCAL IMPACT:  There are sufficient funds within the Water G.O. Voted Bonds Fund - Fund No. 6006, however, an amendment to the 2019 Capital Improvements Budget will be necessary.
