BY COUNCILOR STOVER:
RESOLVED, that Lakehead Constructors, Inc., be and hereby is awarded a contract for construction of Lift Station No. 7 improvements located at 528 Lake Avenue South for the engineering division in accordance with specifications on its low specification of $171,500, terms net 30, FOB destination, payable out of Sanitary Sewer Fund 0530, Department/Agency 500, Organization 1905, Object 5533, Project 0169SN.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution will authorize the construction of Lift Station No. 7 improvements to the low bidder, Lakehead Constructors, Inc., for $171,500, to be paid from Sanitary Sewer Fund 0530. The low bid was 13.5 percent higher than the engineer’s estimate, however, considering the facts that the station is in need of repair, the window to construct is very limited and its location in Canal Park, it is unlikely that savings can be expected if the project is rebid. All are reasons to proceed with the project.
