Meeting Date: April 24, 2001
Subject/Title: Accept the Work Performed by Brown and Fesler, Inc. for street light improvements within the Village Drive Neighborhood, CIP Project No. 336-3087
Submitted by: Engineering: J. Stevenson/S. Gronlund
Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Approve a Resolution accepting the work performed by Brown and Fesler, Inc. for street light improvements within the Village Drive neighborhood, located east of Brentwood Boulevard, north of Sycamore Avenue and south of Sand Creek Road, CIP Project No. 336-3087, and directing the City Clerk to file a Notice of Completion with the County Recorder.
On September 12, 2000, the City Council, by Resolution No. 2155, awarded the construction contract for the Village Drive Street Lighting Project (CIP Project No. 336-3087) to Brown & Fesler, Inc., and authorized the City Manager to execute the agreement and necessary documents in the amount of $72,027.00 and granted the City Manager authority to execute change orders up to 10% of the contract amount.
The Notice to Proceed was issued to Brown and Fesler, Inc. on October 5, 2000. The contractor has 120 calendar days to complete the project. The project was not completed until March 2001, due to expected delays in receiving the luminaries and poles, since streetlight equipment is a long-lead item.
The following is a list of improvements installed:
6 new lights and poles
5 relocated lights and poles
17 lights retrofitted with brighter and better luminaries
5 existing poles retrofitted to create vandal-proof handholes
After the new poles and streetlights were installed, there was a delay by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) in engerizing the 6 new lights and poles.
This project received a grant for $56,000 from the Community Development Block Grant Program administered by the County of Contra Costa. The Engineering Department is currently requesting reimbursement.
Brown and Fesler, Inc. completed the improvements to the Village Drive Neighborhood and has met all the contractual requirements necessary to receive the contract amount balance left in retention. To accept and close out this project, this recommendation to Council is the procedural step to accomplish this task.
