Construction Contract Award Recommendations
The City opened bids for this project on April 19. Three bids were received:
The low bid for Jack Gist Drainage and Field Improvements is higher than the funding available; Public Works has negotiated with the low bidder (East Road Services) a reduction in scope of work (less topsoil import into outfield) and the cost of the project is now $52,475 (within the budget available). The budget does not allow for the Jack Gist Parking Improvement bid item to be awarded.
The low bid for Carter Drive is within the budget. The low bid for the West Homer Elementary Trail project is higher than the funding authorized and will be rebid.
The City Council award the construction contract for:
1) the Carter Drive Access Improvements to Paul’s Services, Anchor Point, Alaska in the amount of $28,500,
2) the Jack Gist Drainage and Field Improvements to East Road Services, Homer Alaska in the amount of $52,475,
and authorize the City Manager to execute all appropriate documents to complete construction.
