Approve a contract
to provide electrical service at City Park
Jon Elam, City
Approve a resolution authorizing the City Manager
to execute a contract with Beasley Electric to provide and install a new
electrical service in City Park
Manager directed Park and Recreation staff to upgrade electrical service
in City Park.
downtown City Park has been the venue for various civic functions dating
back from the Apricot Festival of the 1920’s and 1930’s, through the Carne
Q of the 1950’s and early 1960’s. The annual Corn Festival, Christmas
in the Park, the Holiday Parade and the Summer Concert Series are all
community events staged out of City Park.
In the past, temporary electrical power cables and connections
were provided to serve the power needs of these events.
Recognizing the need for a system of permanent power sources throughout
the park, Staff requested proposals from three electrical contractors
for its design and installation.
Parks and Recreation Department required a basic system consisting of
a 400 Amp, 120/208 volt, meter main supplying six-100 Amp pedestals situated
at the following locations:
· Back of Library, near stage location
Maple and Third
near the Library parking lot
Maple and Second
Near the Second
St. Bus Stop
Near the Christmas
tree at Second and Oak
pedestal would contain a 50 Amp receptacle suitable for supplying a portable
Power Distribution Center containing six additional receptacles (Power
Distribution Centers not provided in this contract). Two duplex 20 Amp
receptacles and two 20 Amp twistlock receptacles would also be provided
at each pedestal.
electrical contracting companies provided bids for provision and installation
of an electrical power system in City Park:
Beasley Electric $34,100.00
Electric and Beasley Electric proposed installing a 400 Amp meter main
next to the existing meter mains on the north side of the Library building. Linco Electric proposed installing one 200 Amp meter main at
the same location feeding 2 pedestals, and one 200 Amp meter located on
the Community Center wall feeding the 4 remaining pedestals. Staff believes
that each of these proposed electrical services provide equivalent electrical
power for events in the park.
lowest responsive bid was from Beasley Electric.
Beasley Electric has extensive experience with the electric utilities
at the City Park site. Beasley
Electric will coordinate PG&E design approvals for this project. The
goal is to complete the electrical improvements by the end of June, 2000.
Funding for these improvements is provided under ‘City Park Electrical
Project’, CIP #522-5216, in the amount of $35,000.00.
