CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 11
Meeting Date: May 9, 2000
Subject/Title: Extension of consultant contract with Linhart, Peterson, Powers and Associates for building and structural plan check services
Submitted by: Community Development (Oshinsky/Kidwell)
Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Extend consultant agreement with Linhart, Peterson, Powers and Associates, allocating an additional pass through of $20,000 for plan check services through the end of the fiscal year.
At the City Council Meeting of July 27, 1999 Council approved the 1999-2001 budget that included a line item for plan check consulting services.
Because of the increase in building activity over the past 11 months, Building Division Staff has struggled to keep up with the workload and still provide the high quality of service that is expected. One of the ways that staff has accomplished this is by shifting a greater amount of plan check time to an outside plan checking firm. In the 1999-2000 Budget, staff included approximately $20,000 for outside plan check services which has been expended.
Recently Council approved an additional position for the Building Division. When the additional staff is hired, workloads will be shifted enabling staff to handle a greater amount of the plan check activity. Until that occurs we must rely on outside plan check services to get us through the balance of the year. Because this cost is passed on to developers, there is no cost to the city. It is estimated that we will need to extend the cap an additional $20,000 to cover all obligations through the end of the year.
