BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to modify (Mod #3) the professional engineering services agreement with E.P. Ferris & Associates, Inc. for the Petzinger Road StormWater Improvements project (CIP 610739-100000), in an amount up to $59,114.34.

While designing this project it was discovered that septic systems were present at eleven (11) of the properties that were to be serviced by the new storm sewer. Construction of the proposed storm sewer improvements was delayed until sanitary sewer service could be extended to the project area and the impacted properties were able to connect to the new sanitary sewer. As a result, a separate sanitary sewer project was developed, designed, and constructed to enable the abandonment of the existing septic systems. Construction for the sanitary sewer project was completed in 2019. The Health Department is currently overseeing the septic system abandonments and private property connections to the new sanitary sewer.
As the plans for the storm sewer improvements were completed and signed in 2006, it is necessary to revisit the plans and bring them up to current design standards while also updating the basemapping with pertinent information that was discovered during construction of the sanitary sewer project.
Planning Area is 57 (Mid East).

Modification #3 (current) $ 59,114.34
CONTRACT TOTAL $ 194,732.98

Reasons additional goods/services could not be foreseen:
The original contract did not anticipate the need for a sanitary sewer extension project, which would need to be designed and constructed, along with the completion of private property connections, prior to being permissible to construct. Once the sanitary sewer issues came to light, it was anticipated that pla...
