Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into professional engineering services agreement with Dynotec, Inc. for the 2020 Division of Power Streetlight Design Project, in an amount up to $376,158.84.

Three street lighting projects will be designed under this agreement:

• Refugee Road Street Lighting project (CIP 670896-100000)
• Main Street (Circuit 157) Street Lighting Improvements Project (CIP 670898-100000)
• Small Circuit Street Lighting Replacement Project (CIP 670902-100000)

The Refugee Road project involves an area that does not currently have street lighting, so following construction, this area will see the benefits of having the street lighting.

The Main Street (Circuit 157) and Small Circuit projects will design the replacement of existing streetlight circuits that are in disrepair and require significant maintenance to ensure the lights continue to operate. When constructed, the Division of Power maintenance costs will be reduced and the neighborhoods will see less outages.

The community planning areas for this project are as follows:
Planning Area 58 (Far East) for the Refugee Road Street Lighting
Planning Area 57 (Mid-East) for the Main St. (Circuit 157) Street Lighting Improvements
Planning Area 99 (City-wide) for the Small Circuit Street Lighting Replacement

2. PROJECT TIMELINE: It is estimated that the notice to proceed will occur in early December, with a design timeline of 9-12 months.
3. EMERGENCY DESIGNATION: An emergency designation is not requested at this time.
