BY COUNCILOR STOVER:
RESOLVED, that Resolution 03-0528 to Short Elliot Hendrickson, Inc., for professional engineering services for year 2004 street improvement program for Lakeside Lower Southwest-2, be amended to increase the amount by $36,285 for a new total of $147,319, payable out of the Street Improvement Program Fund 0440, Department/Agency 038, Organization 0405, Object 5530.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution will authorize an amendment to Resolution 03-0528, passed on July 14, 2003, for professional engineering services to Short Elliot Hendrickson for the construction of the 2004 street improvement program, Lakeside Lower SW 2, City of Duluth Project No. 0323TR, located on 41st Avenue East from Gilliat Street to Superior Street; 42nd Avenue East from Gilliat Street to Superior Street; Gilliat Street from 40th Avenue East to 200 feet east of 42nd Avenue East; and Luverne Street from 40th Avenue East to 41st Avenue East; to be paid from Fund 0440; Agency 038; Organization 0405; Object 5530. The increase is due to an increase in project scope, which includes additional design, survey, meetings and construction inspection for the extension of a four foot by eight foot box culvert on Gilliat Street and the extension of a four by six foot box culvert at the railroad tracks below Gilliat Street. The extension of the box culvert at Gilliat Street allowed for the construction of 24 foot wide curb and gutter street on the center of street right-of-way. Failing structural supports under a 36 inch watermain necessitated the extension of the railroad tracks box culvert. The box culvert replaced the failing support system. The extension will also allow for the future extension of the Lakewalk system to the east end of Duluth. The request for increase is $36,285. The original professional services contract amount was $111,034. Requisition No. 03-0506; Job No. 0323TR
