of private sprinkler due to construction of the Sand Creek Road/O’Hara

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Authorize payment of $31,820.25 to Louis Mangini for compensation of private
sprinkler system due to construction of the Sand Creek Road/O’Hara Avenue
Extension (CIP Project No. 336-3055) and authorize the City Manager to
execute an agreement with Louis Mangini.
On May 11, 1999, by Resolution No. 99-122, the City Council awarded the
contract for construction of the Sand Creek Road/O’Hara Avenue Extension
to RGW, Inc. On November 8, 1999, the roadway was opened for public use.
On June 27, 2000, by Resolution No. 2106, the City Council accepted the
improvements of Sand Creek Road/O’Hara Avenue Extension from RGW, Inc.
In order to construct the Sand Creek Road/O’Hara Avenue Extension, the
City had to disrupt the existing irrigation system for the alfalfa fields
that Louis Mangini (property owner) was farming for his two parcels, APN
016 120 013 and 014. After discussion with East Contra Costa Irrigation
District and the farmer, the City constructed the necessary irrigation
improvements for the current crop.
However, at the time of construction, the method for irrigation was gravity
flow through earthen ditches. The farmer also had a secondary irrigation
system of sprinkler lines that were not being utilized at that time. Mr.
Mangini is now switching from a field crop to a row crop, which will require
the use of the sprinkler system. The City has agreed to pay for the installation
of the new sprinkler lines required in order for the farmer to receive
the same level of irrigation service as prior to construction of the road.
The Engineering Department contacted the following three irrigation landscapers:
Four Seasons, Ortiz Landscaping, and Delta Excavating to provide an estimate
for the new sprinkler system. Delta Excavating provided the sole estimate
The Engineering Department is requesting the Council to approve the $30,305.00
plus 5% contract administration services for a total of $31,820.25 to
Louis Mangini. The payment will be made once said property owner signs
the attached agreement.
