BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a professional engineering services agreement with F.K. Enzor, dba Panic Lighting Company for the SMART Street Lighting Control System project, in an amount up to $416,999.10, for Division of Power, CIP No. 670878-100007.

The purpose of this project is to purchase and install a control system that will operate the streetlights as smart lighting is implemented. The intent is to modify this agreement on an annual basis as additional lights are converted and communication is installed for connection to the system.

Planning Area is 99 (City-wide).

FUTURE MODIFICATION(S): It is anticipated that there will be future modifications for this project. The Division of Power is currently planning on bidding out the next phase of the overall Smart Lighting project this fall, which will trigger a modification to this agreement to account for the lights in that phase. Moving forward, the Division of Power plans on doing one phase per year, which will include a new phase of lights being converted to smart technology and a modification to this contract for the controls.

TIMELINE: It is anticipated that this phase of the project will be completed in the fall of 2021.

As smart lighting is implemented, the Division of Power will see an improvement in its response time as it will be notified immediately of a light that is no longer working. The smart lighting project will also replace all existing HPS lights with LED, which will significantly decrease the City’s greenhouse gas emissions.

BID INFORMATION: The selection of the firm providing the professional engineering services has been performed in accordance with the procedures set forth in Columbus City Code, Section 329, "Awarding professional service contracts through requests for proposals."
