RESOLUTION AWARDING A CONTRACT TO CHAMPION COATINGS, INC., FOR CLEANING, REPAIRING AND PAINTING OF THE 400,000 GALLON SINGLE PEDESTAL SPHEROID PROCTOR TOWER IN THE AMOUNT OF $328,000.

BY COUNCILOR JOHNSON:

     RESOLVED, Champion Coatings, Inc., be and is hereby awarded a contract for cleaning, repairing and painting of the 400,000 gallon single pedestal spheroid Proctor tower for the engineering division in accordance with its low specification bid of $328,000 payable out of the Water Fund 510, Department/Agency 500, Organization 1905, Object 5526, Project Number 0591WA.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution will authorize cleaning, repairing and painting of the 400,000 gallon single pedestal spheroid Proctor tower by Champion Coatings, Inc., in the amount of $328,000 to be paid from the Water Fund 510. Champion Coatings, Inc., was the lowest of five companies that responded. Although their bid is approximately 16 percent higher than the engineer’s estimate of $281,900, we recommend award. The Proctor water tower needs to be rehabilitated. Prices are not expected to be substantially lower, if rebid.
