FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS
DATE: DECEMBER 20, 2005
SUBJECT: REPAIR OF FOUR STORM DRAINS
Review and reconfirm by a four/fifths (4/5) vote, the Council’s previous action on November 15, 2005 to authorize staff to conduct an informal bid process to repair storm drains on Palos Verdes Drive South, Silver Arrow, Crest Road and Pontevedra.
On November 15, 2005, the City Council found that an emergency exists concerning the repair of four Storm Drains. This emergency situation will not permit a delay resulting from a competitive solicitation for bids to line the existing pipes.
Approval of both the informal bid process, the pre-ordering of materials and the negotiation and execution of the construction contract change order with SANCON Technologies, Inc., and the expenditure of the $459,700 for this work required a four-fifths (4/5) vote of the Council under Public Contract Code Section 22050(a)(1).
In addition, Public Contract Code Section 22050(c)(1) requires that when a governing body takes action under Section 22050(a)(1), it must review that action and reaffirm it by a four-fifths vote at each subsequent regularly scheduled meeting until the action is terminated. Accordingly, because the repair has not yet been completed, staff has placed this item on tonight’s agenda. This item will be placed on each subsequent agenda until the project is completed.
The Contractor is continuing his work on the storm drainpipe under Palos Verdes Drive South. His crews cleaned the pipe using hand labor with shovels, a jackhammer and buckets to carry away the debris. An access pit was excavated along the shoulder on PV Drive South and the pipe was lined. Work continued on the section of the storm drain line to the east that runs under Seacove Drive. This section of storm drain line was cleaned and lined during the week of December 12, 2005. A manhole will be constructed where the access pit is currently located.
Lining the Pontevedra storm drain line will be performed following rehabilitation of the pipe. The rehabilitation work is being performed under a separate contract. Staff anticipates the rehabilitation work and the lining will be completed by mid January 2006.
