Homer Waste Water Treatment Plant Micro-Strainer Electrical Connection
On February 7, 2014 bids were received for the Homer Waste Water Treatment Plant Micro-Strainer Electrical Connection project. This work was advertised via email/fax to four area electrical contractors.
This project consists of running new conduit and wire in order to energize the new Micro-Strainer at the Homer Waste Water Treatment Plant along with mounting the new control panel and emergency shut off switch. This project also includes adding four new light fixtures in the existing room where the new micro-strainer will be housed in order to meet lighting standards for this space.
Two responsive bids were received from qualified firms. The bid results were evaluated and the results are as follows.
Responsive Bidder’s Names Location Amount
Liberty Electric, Inc. Homer $11,881.00
Puffin Electric, Inc. Homer $15,520.00
Engineer’s Estimate $12,000.00
Both contractors were local, therefore, the City’s local bidder’s preference does not apply.
City Council pass a resolution awarding the construction contract for the Homer Waste Water Treatment Plant Micro-Strainer Electrical Connection project in the amount of $11,881.00 to Liberty Electric, Inc. of Homer, Alaska, and authorizing the City Manager to execute all appropriate documents necessary to complete this project.
