Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify a professional services contract with Toole Design Group for the Operation Sidewalks - School Sidewalks - Eastland project.
Ordinance 2618-2018 authorized the Director of Public Service to enter into a professional services contract with Toole Design Group for the Operation Sidewalks - School Sidewalks - Eastland project. The intent of the project is to provide the City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, with continuing, contractual access to additional resources that are necessary to perform professional engineering and survey services as well as provide technical expertise for the Department to implement sidewalk projects to provide improved pedestrian access to schools. The Operation Sidewalks - School Sidewalks - Eastland project will install sidewalk along streets surrounding Independence High School and Liberty Elementary School.

This is an unplanned modification that is necessary to cover the additional design elements that were not included under the original scope of services. The elements in the modification were not known until the design was underway and additional information was made available to the design team and the City through the Preliminary Alignment. This work directly pertains to and is a part of the design already underway by the consultant therefore it is more cost effective to modify the existing contract than to bid this part of the work.

The original contract amount: $520,000.00 (PO146200, Ord. 2618-2018)
The total of Modification No. 1: $ 90,000.00 (This Ordinance)

The contract amount including all modifications: $610,000.00
