BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into professional engineering services agreement with Evans, Mechwart, Hambleton and Tilton (EMH&T) for the 2021 Division of Power Streetlight Design Project, in an amount up to $176,310.02. The work will include all survey, engineering and consulting services required for the design of underground and overhead street lighting systems within the project areas.

The areas are as follows:
Noe-Bixby Road Street Lighting project (CIP 670895-100000)
Circuit 128/80 Project (CIP 670899-100000)

The Noe-Bixby Road project involves installing new lights on Noe Bixby Road between Laraine Court and Cedar Drive.
This is in planning area 65 (South East).

The Circuit 128/80 project will replace parts of two existing streetlight circuits on Broad Street between Garfield Avenue and 21st Street, and will create one new circuit.
This is in planning area 56 (Near East).

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

CONTRACT COMPLIANCE NUMBER: 31-0685594 / MAJ/ Exp. 12/17/21/ Vendor No. 004214.

ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT: The Circuits 128 and 80 project involves the replacement of parts of two 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 Noe-Bixby Road area is currently unlit, so following construction, this area will see the benefits of having the streets lighting. The proposed streetlights will incorporate LED technology that will generate savings in electric energy and long-term maintenance which will be a significant economic impact and reduce greenhouse gases t...
