RE: CHANGE ORDER TO ORDINANCE 12-17(S), DEEP WATER DOCK REPAIR, TO INCLUDE EMERGENCY REPAIRS TO R & S FLOAT PILINGS
Staff discovered after the company Pacific Pile and Marine’s equipment arrived on scene to perform the Deep Water Dock repair that their barge had a wider beam than we had originally believed. Staff believes that the risks verses benefits involved with moving the barge and crane into place between R and S floats were too high for us to guarantee a successful conclusion for the piling replacement project. Staff is working on other solutions to make the three compromised pile in that location safe. R and S floats and the supporting piling are on the list for replacement in our Harbor Improvement Plan.
Vote no on approving the change order to Ordinance 12-17(S).
