Background:

Council approved the FY 19 CIP budget with $100,000 for the Alf Sorensen Small Wonders Playground project.  This project is to remove the existing original playground, miscellaneous concrete, install a new two (2) to five (5) year old playground with playground tiles, and pour new concrete sidewalk and curb. 

The City has already purchased the new two (2) to five (5) year old playground that will be supplied to the contractor for installation.



Analysis:

The project was informally quoted to three local contractors.  Staff has reviewed the informal quotes, found no irregularities, and recommends award of the informal quote submitted by Garden Shop Nursery Landscaping Division, Inc, in the amount of $72,927.65, which includes a force account of $3,500 to correct unforeseen conditions, if required.

A detailed bid recap along with a map showing the limits of construction are also attached for Council’s review.
