General items

 

                                    ITEM 1                                               TAPE 1, COUNT 0061

 

Request for Proposal for preparation of construction and bid documents for Cove Shopping Center parking lot improvements.

 

Chair Capellini stated that this item was discussed at a previous meeting, with regard to proposal for preparation of construction bid documents for the Cove Shopping Center parking lot improvements.  The recent proposals were extraordinarily high and this is an attempt to secure lower proposals.

 

Gerald Ferguson, Director of Planning and Growth Management/Building Department, stated that this is a request for authorization to seek a proposal from one of the firms that are already qualified with the CRA.  He said that the Board?s previous direction was to seek other proposals; however, it was recalled that they had previously underwent the qualification process and had entered into professional service agreements with McMahon & Associates, Rose Consulting, and EAC.  He asked that authorization be given to request a proposal from Keith & Associates, one of the engineering subcontractors under McMahon & Associates.  McMahon & Associates are traffic engineers and would not be suitable for this type of operation.

 

Andrew Maurodis, CRA Attorney, concurred that he has reviewed the documents and stated that a motion is needed to direct staff to have the work order prepared for approval. 

 

MOTION was made by Mr. Gonot and seconded by Mr. Popelsky directing staff to proceed with a work order from Keith & Associates.

 

Voice Vote: YEAS: Mr. Gonot, Ms. Militello, Mr. Popelsky, and Chair Capellini.  NAYS:  None.

 

Mr. Ferguson stated that he expects to present a cost proposal to the Board at the next meeting.
