SUBJECT: NON-ACCEPTANCE OF AWARD
On June 24, 2013 through Resolution 13-064 Council awarded Mooserun Metalsmiths a contract in the Amount of $11,000 for a Circle Hook sculpture as part of the 1% for Arts Program on the Homer Spit Trail Phase II Project.
After careful consideration of the offer from the Project Manager to postpone the installation of the sculpture until the fall of 2014, Mooserun Metalsmiths has contacted our office to state that at this time they are unable to accept the award due to closing of their studio and pending relocation.
The members of the Selection Committee were informed of this decision and have agreed that it is in the best interests of the City and the project to reissue the Request for Proposals as written with just the necessary amendments to the dates.
Approve recommendation to reissue the Request for Proposal for Artwork on the Homer Spit Trail Phase II Project.
