Subject/Title: Authorization of Budget Increase For Plan Check Consultant Services With Linhart Peterson Powers Associates.
Submitted by: Mitch Oshinsky, Community Development Director/Louis R. Kidwell, Chief Building Official
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Authorize the City Manager to approve the extension of an Open Purchase Order with Linhart Peterson Powers Associates to an amount not to exceed $135,000.
On February 26, by resolution No. 2335, the City Council authorized the City Manager to execute Purchase Orders for Not-to-Exceed dollar amounts for a list of vendors of which Linhart Peterson Powers Associates was one. The Not-to-Exceed dollar amount for Linhard Peterson Powers Associates was set at $100,000.
In February, the anticipated amount of plan check costs through the balance of the budget year was inadvertently miscalculated. Because of the strong recovery in the housing market and the increase in commercial projects, the need for plan check services has surged. Staff now anticipates expenses of an additional $35,000 for the rest of the fiscal year
Plan check services are paid directly from fees collected from the developers for that service.
