Staff Coordinator: Nicole Jules, Sr. Engineer

BACKGROUND & ANALYSIS

On October 15, 2002, City Council awarded a contract to SRD Engineering, Inc. for the construction of the Point Vicente Interpretive Center Storm Drain Project.

Pursuant to the approved contract, the work has been satisfactorily completed at the following cost:

Authorized Contract Amount

$277,000.00

Authorized Contingency Budget

$27,000.00

Total Construction Budget

$306,132.00

Change Orders

$21,055.76

Total Construction Cost

$298,055.76

After the Army Corps of Engineers completed the remediation process, the final topography of the site created a need for an additional storm drain inlet to prevent runoff waters flowing over the bluff. To accommodate this change, a change order was issued as a line item adjustment for additional 24" reinforced concrete pipe to collect storm water runoff near the bluff-side of the project area.

FISCAL IMPACT

The recommended action will have no fiscal impact.

CONCLUSION

SRD Engineering, Inc. has successfully completed all work in accordance with the plans and specifications. Therefore, the work should be accepted as complete and a Notice of Completion filed.

Respectfully Submitted,
