CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 18

Meeting Date: June 27, 2006

Subject/Title: A Resolution approving and authorizing the City Manager or her designee to execute a Professional Services Agreement with Shums Coda Associates to provide plancheck services, in an amount not to exceed $75,000, for the 2006-2007 fiscal year.

Prepared by: Louis R. Kidwell, Chief Building Official

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Community Development Director

RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution approving and authorizing the City Manager or her designee to execute a Professional Services Agreement with Shums Coda Associates to provide plancheck services, in an amount not to exceed $75,000 for the 2006-2007 budget year.

BACKGROUND
The Building Division of the Community Development Department from time to time finds it necessary to engage the services of plan check professionals. There are two reasons that make it advantageous to use an outside consultant. The first reason is that some of the projects, because of their complexity, require the review of a Registered Structural Engineer. The second reason is that it allows us to manage the fluctuations in plancheck volumes that occur from time to time.

FISCAL IMPACT
Funding for these services is directly offset by fees collected for the service and is budgeted in the 2006-2007 fiscal year Building Division Budget.

Attachment:
Resolution
Professional Services Agreement

WHEREAS, the City of Brentwood is required to review all building documents for compliance with all State and local building codes; and

WHEREAS, from time to time, because of the complexity of the building to review, it becomes necessary to contract the services of professionals with specialized skills; and

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Brentwood hereby authorizes the City Manager or her designee to execute a Professional Services Agreement with Shums Coda Associates to provide plancheck services, in an amount not to exceed $75,000, for the 2006-2007 fiscal year.
