This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to extend the construction contract for Utility Cut and Restoration Services with Decker Construction Company through August 5, 2021 without adding additional funds. If additional funding is needed before August 5, 2021, a modification will be requested.

Typical types of restoration work that require outsourcing involve the installation of wheelchair ramps, asphalt repair involving thermal bond heat weld repairs, asphalt milling machines capable of full width milling, and the delivery of flowable controlled density fill using volumetric mixer trucks.
