RESOLUTION AMENDING RESOLUTION 07-0492 AND AUTHORIZING THE EXTENSION OF CONTRACT #20211 WITH GERARD CHIMNEY COMPANY FOR THE INSPECTION OF THE DULUTH STEAM PLANT CHIMNEY FROM DECEMBER 31, 2007, THROUGH JULY 31, 2008.

BY COUNCILOR JOHNSON:

     RESOLVED, that Resolution 07-0492 be amended and Contract #20211 with Gerard Chimney Company be extended from December 31, 2007, through July 31, 2008, to allow the inspection of the Duluth Steam Plant chimney to begin in the spring of 2008; the contract amount, scope of services, and other contract provisions shall remain the same.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution will authorize a contract extension Contract #20211 with Gerard Chimney Company from December 31, 2007, through July 31, 2008, to allow the inspection of the Duluth Steam Plant chimney to begin in the spring of 2008.


The original Contract #20211 was dated October 10, 2007, for execution and December 31, 2007, for completion. However, due to ongoing work with the Johnson Controls project and installation of the bowlmill pulverisor, the Steam Plant facility manager is unable to prepare the breeching from the boilers to bypass the stack for inspection.


This seven-month contract extension will not impact the contract amount or any other contract provision.
