Explanation

1.  BACKGROUND

This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify a professional services contract with Carpenter Marty Transportation to add additional funds for design of the Roadway Improvements - Little Turtle Way project.

Ordinance 0856-2018 authorized the Director of Public Service to enter into a professional services contract with Carpenter Marty Transportation for the Roadway Improvements - Little Turtle Way project.  The Roadway Improvements - Little Turtle Way contract is for preliminary engineering and detailed design for improvements to Little Turtle Way from SR-161 to Firewater Lane.  Improvements are anticipated to include the consolidation, repurposing, and rehabilitation of deteriorated, excess vehicular infrastructure to provide a safer, multimodal corridor serving current and future demands in the amount of $350,000.00

 

Ordinance 1686-2020 authorized modification number one in the amount of $130,000.00 to complete the construction plans for the project based on the results of the traffic study and preliminary alignment plan. 

 

This ordinance is needed to complete design changes from the backcheck review comments and coordination with City fire and safety reviewers.  Plan revisions are outside the original scope of services.  It was deemed to be more cost efficient to modify the existing contract than to bid this part of the work.

 

The original contract amount:                                                                             $350,000.00     (PO113872, Ord. 0856-2018)                         

The total of Modification No. 1:                                                                      $130,000.00     (PO239187, Ord. 1686-2020)

The total of Modification No. 2:                                                                      $30,000.00       (This Ordinance)

The contract amount including all modifications:              $510,000.00 

 

Searches in the System for Award Management (Federal) and the Findings for Recovery list (State) produced no findings against Carpenter Marty Transportation.

 

2.  CONTRACT COMPLIANCE

The contract compliance number for Carpenter Marty Transportation is CC008494 and expires 10/17/21.

 

3.  FISCAL IMPACT

This is a budgeted expense.  Funding in the amount of $30,000.00 is available and appropriated within the Streets and Highways Bond Fund, Fund 7704, within Project P531002-100000 (Roadway Improvements - Little Turtle Way).

 

4.  EMERGENCY DESIGNATION
