RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution approving and authorizing the City Manager to execute a contract with Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) in an amount of $124,460, plus a 10% contingency of $12,446, for a total amount of $136,906, for the undergrounding of the existing 21 kV Overhead Distribution Power Line on Walnut Boulevard from Balfour Road to Oak Street for the Walnut Boulevard Widening (Utilities), CIP Project No. 336-3056.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On June 27, 2000, City Council authorized the City Manager to sign a design contract with Harris & Associates for the design of Walnut Boulevard Widening, CIP Project No. 336-3056, from Balfour Road to Oak Street.

On May 24, 2005, by Resolution No. 2005-115, City Council adopted the City’s 2005/06 – 2009/10 Capital Improvement Program that included the Walnut Boulevard Widening, CIP Project No. 336-3056.

On March 28, 2006, by Resolution No. 2006-52, City Council approved the Contract Documents and authorized the City Manager to execute a Construction Contract for the Walnut Boulevard Widening (Utilities), CIP Project No. 336-3056 to K. J. Woods Construction, Inc. in the amount of $1,984,000, plus a 10% contingency, for a total amount of $2,182,400.

BACKGROUND
The attached contract is for Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) to underground the existing 21 kV Overhead Distribution Power Line on Walnut Boulevard from Albertson’s southeasterly property corner to Oak Street. This undergrounding is required prior to the roadway widening work to occur as Phase II of the Brentwood Boulevard Widening project and these improvements will improve the aesthetics of the area by removing the 21 kV overhead power lines and placing the facility underground in a joint trench with other utilities (AT&T, Comcast, fiber optics, etc.). When this agreement is approved by City Council, PG&E will then commence with all necessary work and inspections for installing wire, conductors, transformer, and energize the new underground system once K. J. Woods Construction, the contractor who was awarded the construction contract, has completed the installation of the conduit and vault boxes, which they are scheduled to begin by the end of May.

FISCAL IMPACT
The Fiscal Year (FY) 2005/06 budget contains funds for the Walnut Boulevard Widening (Utilities), CIP Project No. 336-3056, in the amount of $2,231,394.

The cost for this PG&E contract of $124,460, was budgeted and included in the total project budget.
