BY COUNCILOR STOVER:
RESOLVED, that Alliance Steel Construction, Inc., be and hereby is awarded a contract for the construction of storm sewer extensions in various areas for the engineering division in accordance with the specifications on its low specification bid of $125,273, terms FOB job site, payable out of Fund 535, Department/Agency 500, Organization 1905, Object 5533, City Project numbers 0518ST, 0549ST, 0553ST, 0576ST.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution will authorize the construction of 1,253 feet of storm sewer in Albion Street at 53rd Avenue East, Zimmerly Avenue at Commonwealth Avenue, Restormel Street at Atlantic, and 97th Avenue West at Dickson Street by Alliance Steel Construction, Inc., in the amount of $125,273 to be paid from the Storm Sewer Fund 535.
Alliance Steel Construction, Inc., was the lowest of three companies that responded. Although their bid is approximately 22 percent higher than the engineer’s estimate of $102,998, it is recommended to award this contract now to avoid further deterioration and undermining of the existing street surface.
