Attachments: 1. Legislation - Turnberry Golf Course Improvements Construction Modification - FINAL - ATTACHMENT

Background: This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to modify an existing contract with Decker Construction Company for the Turnberry Golf Course Improvements Construction Project. The modification amount being authorized by this ordinance is $175,000.00.

The Turnberry Golf Course, bordering Blacklick Creek, is an Arthur Hills designed links style championship course. This course hosts many local youth tournaments, provides learning opportunities for all ages, and is open to the public. This project will be addressing some of the badly deteriorated cart paths on the course as well as improved drainage in areas that will make the course more usable for our customers. Revenues generated through greens fees, cart rentals, tournaments, and permitted rentals support the operation of the golf courses. These improvements to the golf course will encourage increased use and revenue for the department.

By modifying this contract, Decker Construction Company will be able to finish the repairs to the cart path and finish the drainage improvement associated with said improvements. The original contract underestimated the areas of deterioration from the time the project was designed to the time it was actually built. The needs for these funds were not anticipated at the time of initial award and, therefore, the areas of repair exceeded what was originally anticipated. It is not recommended to award this work through another procurement process since unit prices have already been established with Decker Construction Company and they are already mobilized on site. The costs for the additional repairs were determined for using existing unit prices that were already established by the original contract multiplied by verified field measurements.
