A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF HOMER, ALASKA, AUTHORIZING THE CITY MANAGER TO PREPARE AND ISSUE A SET OF REQUESTS FOR PROPOSALS FOR FIVE YEAR TERM CONTRACTS FOR ENGINEERING SERVICES.
WHEREAS, The City’s current term contract for engineering services recently expired; and
WHEREAS, The City administration believes that the term contract approach has been very successful and beneficial to the City and wishes to enter into several new term contracts for engineering services; and
WHEREAS, Term contracts would increase the City’s efficiency and productivity, especially now since there are so many public works projects funded and scheduled for design and construction in the next few years; and
WHEREAS, Term contracts save the City valuable time and money and they have the added advantage of attracting the most qualified firms because of the potential for longer term work on multiple projects; and
WHEREAS, The City Administration would like to increase its flexibility and access to specialized engineering services when needed by entering into three separate term contracts with engineering firms, one for civil work, one for water and sewer, and one for port and harbor.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Homer City Council hereby authorizes the City Manager to prepare and issue a set of requests for proposals for term contracts related to professional engineering services.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Council authorizes three separate five-year term contracts for specialized engineering services; civil, water and sewer, and port and harbor.
PASSED AND ADOPTED by the Homer City Council this 25th day of April, 2011.
