b. RESOLUTION 2015-19— Approving a contract with Aisa Civil, Inc. for the CR 59 waterline project.

Debra Chumley advised the board that all bids were reviewed and summarized on the spread sheet provided in the board packet that shows a line by line item of the cost of each bid ranging from $280,885.00 to $431,738.00. Debra mentioned there was an error on the request for bid on the number of units for item number six which was the waterline lowering. It should have reflected three units. Staff recommendation is to award the bid to Aisa Civil, Inc. and have the contract amount reflect the additional unit at a cost of $3,870.00 which brings the contract total to $284,755.00. The board was advised that the Towns engineer had previously worked with Aisa Civil, Inc and mentioned they were easy to work with. Motion was made by Trustee Baumgartner, seconded by Trustee Beach to approve RESOLUTION 2015-19- Approving a contract with Aisa Civil, Inc. for the CR 59 waterline project. The motion carried 5-0, Mayor Kipp, Trustees Baumgartner, Wafel, Beach and Sparrow voting yes.

 

 

 

Staff Reports:       Administration

Debra advised the board that a previous approved resolution regarding water and sewer rates will be brought back to the board at the next meeting because of a miscalculation in the study that decreases revenue. Initially the study was done for November, December and January instead of December, January and February. The board discussed possible options to apply to the calculation of the water and sewer rates find a happy medium for everyone in the Town.
