Title

Resolution – A Resolution Authorizing a Change Order to the Contract with Klutz Construction for the 2019 Aerial Sewer Repairs Project and Authorizing Additional Funding for an Amount Not to Exceed $66,369.01 (Utility Fund)

 

Requested Action

Consider the Resolution authorizing a Change Order to the contract with Klutz Construction for the 2019 Aerial Sewer Repairs project and authorizing additional funding for an amount not to exceed $66,369.01 (Utility Fund).

 

Recommendation

The Engineering Staff recommends approval of the Resolution.

 

Description/History

The 2019 Aerial Sewer Repairs project was awarded to Klutz Construction on August 9, 2021 for an amount not to exceed $2,738,895.81.  The project is a compilation of six individual sewer line repairs at various creek crossing locations. Five of the six locations are now substantially complete. The remaining work is located at Area 3 in Walnut Creek at Fox Hollow Drive which includes stabilizing the streambank adjacent to the existing 42” RCCP aerial sewer crossing which is markedly critical infrastructure. The project is expected to be complete by the end of 2022.

 

Justification

The contract award amount was exceeded due to items added to the contract and additional quantities needed to complete the project. On-site excavation at Area 3 revealed damage to the existing pier support and extensive erosion under the existing 42” concrete cylinder sewer pipe which had not been anticipated. Freese and Nichols recommended additional piers to support the pipe in the east bank of Walnut Creek. Other changes include additional channel bottom stabilization to Area 3, the extension of 12” PVC sewer pipe replacement necessary to complete the repair in Hogpen Branch at Brookfield Lane (Area 5). See attached Change Order Tabulation for a complete breakdown of all items and their associated costs. These additional improvements and quantities represent a sum of $66,369.01, which is an additional 2.5% of the original contract.

 

The Assistant Director of Public Works/City Engineer will be in attendance at the meeting to answer Council’s questions regarding the proposed contract modification and funding.  A resolution is attached for Council’s consideration.

 

Funding Source

The funding source will be from the Utility Fund.
