BACKGROUND: This Ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to renew the professional engineering services agreement with Hill International, Inc. for the Professional Construction Management 2020 Project, in an amount up to $6,826,100.00, for the Division of Water.

This contract is assisting the City with managing a capital improvement program consisting of multiple capital improvement projects to ensure completion in accordance with design requirements and City’s needs, while serving as a liaison between the construction contractor, design professional (DP), and City personnel.
