BY COUNCILOR STOVER:
RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are hereby authorized to reimburse the Duluth Airport Authority in the amount of up to $23,835 for excavation and backfilling of a trench for the installation by the city of a three inch gas line adjacent to the airport perimeter road, payable from the Gas Fund 520, Public Works and Utilities Department 500, Organization 1905, Capital Improvements - Revenue Object 5533, City Project No. 0049GS.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The purpose of this resolution is to authorize the transfer of funds from the gas fund to the Duluth Airport Authority in the estimated amount of $23,835 as reimbursement to the Duluth Airport Authority for work to be performed under a change order to their contract with KGM Contractors, Inc.
KGM Contractors, Inc., is under contract with the Duluth Airport Authority for construction of Perimeter Road Phase 2, Bid No. 2005-00000203, Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Project No. 03-27-0024-38. The public works and utilities department desires to have KGM excavate and backfill a trench for installation of a three inch polyethylene gas main along Perimeter Road from Northwest Airbus east to the Air National Guard Base by the public works and utilities department operations division. This work can be performed most economically by KGM Contractors, Inc., before they complete their restoration work on the Perimeter Road project.
This gas main extension will allow the public works and utilities department to complete a three inch gas main loop to the Air National Guard Base in the future by having the department’s blanket gas contractor install the final 600 feet of three inch polyethylene gas main to connect to its existing gas main. The change order amount of $23,835 will be paid from the gas fund.
