CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 11

Meeting Date: October 26, 2004

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution awarding the Construction Contract for the Landscaping Project for Water (Potable) Systems Facilities, CIP Project No. 562-5634.

Prepared by: Engineering: R. Craig

Submitted by: Engineering: B. Grewal

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution awarding the construction contract for the Landscaping Project for Water (Potable) Systems Facilities, CIP Project No. 562-5634, to Cassani Landscaping and authorize the City Manager to execute the agreement and necessary documents in the amount of $51,682, plus a 10% contingency.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On June 22, 2004, City Council approved Resolution 2004-140, to include the Landscaping Project for Water (Potable) Systems Facilities into the 2004/05 – 2008/09 Capital Improvement Program.

BACKGROUND
This year’s Capital Improvement Program includes the Landscaping Project for Water (Potable) Systems Facilities. This Zone 1 Water Reservoir, located west of the Highway 4 Bypass and north of Balfour Road along Presidio Drive is one of the facilities included in the enhancement improvements due to surrounding residential construction. At the time of construction, the project did not include any landscaping as it was intended that staff would do this work under a separate contract. The design for the landscaping surrounding the Zone 1 Reservoirs has been completed. This project consists of installing a solar powered irrigation system and landscape screening around the Zone 1 Reservoirs. This is an opportunity to enhance the aesthetics of the City’s infrastructure while progressing the City’s ongoing effort to be a good neighbor near homes and to minimize any potential visual impacts to the adjacent residents. The project will improve the City’s image and is an opportunity to demonstrate areas using low water use plants and landscaping techniques. This landscaping includes planting of 15 gallon size trees, 24” box trees and a hydro-seed of natural grass to provide an immediate benefit.

Due to the volume and cost of work anticipated, the City conducted an informal bid process and requested bids from five contractors. A total of three (3) bids were received and reviewed and the lowest responsive, responsible bid was received from Cassani Landscaping in the amount of $51,682.

The three bids were:

1. Cassani Landscaping $51,682
2. Oracle Landscape $52,900
3. Misan Construction $84,855

Staff recommends the award of the construction contract for the Landscaping Project for Water (Potable) Systems Facilities, CIP Project No. 562-5634, to Cassani Landscaping for the amount of $51,682 plus a 10% contingency, for a total contract amount of $56,850.20.
FISCAL IMPACT
The funds for this work are paid for through enterprise fees, which are included in the existing budget as approved by this year’s Capital Improvement Program 2004/05 for a total project cost of $185,000.

There are sufficient funds to accommodate this landscaping contract in the amount of $51,682 plus a 10% contingency, for a total contract amount of $56,850.20 in the overall budget and more specifically in the category of Construction.
