RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution accepting the work performed by Talus Construction, Inc., for Sarah Street Water Distribution System Improvements, CIP Project No. 562-56350, and directing the City Clerk to file a Notice of Completion with the County Recorder.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On May 23, 2006, by Resolution No. 2006-113, City Council awarded the construction contract for Sarah Street Water Distribution System Improvements, CIP Project No. 562-56350 to Talus Construction, Inc.

BACKGROUND
The scope of the original project was to replace only the 8-inch water line. In an effort to minimize the residential inconvenience and traffic impacts caused by the nature of this project; the Wastewater Division was contacted to conduct an inspection of the collection system on Sarah Street. Staff found numerous low spots and degradation of the existing 8-inch sewer main by televising the line. Staff was unable to televise the entire sewer main due to tight bends and a reduction in pipe size. Staff concluded it was more economical to replace both the 8-inch water line and the 8-inch sewer line simultaneously.

The City of Brentwood originally advertised the project for public bid beginning May 27, 2005 with the bid opening on June 16, 2005. Due to the lowest bidder’s failure to provide the required bond and insurance documents within the time period required by the bid documents, staff re-bid the project.

Staff again advertised the project for construction on March 6, 2006 and bids were opened on April 21, 2006. A total of three (3) bids were received. The bids were reviewed and the lowest responsive, responsible bid was received from Talus Construction, Inc.

Talus Construction, Inc. has now completed the work consisting of replacement of an 8-inch domestic water line and an 8-inch sanitary sewer line along Sarah Street between Dainty Avenue and Summer Circle. Talus Construction, Inc. completed the work on-time, under budget and to the satisfaction of the City. Their crew was professional, extremely competent, and they worked hard to minimize the inconvenience to the residents in that area. City staff received compliments from a few residents who were pleased with the crew and their cooperative nature.

FISCAL IMPACT
The total contract amount for the work performed by Talus Construction, Inc. for the Sarah Street Water Distribution System Improvements, CIP 562-56350, is as follows:

Contractor Actual Amount City Council Approved Amount
Talus Construction, Inc. $253,445.37 $262,600.80

The work is complete and is under City Council approved amounts for these improvements.
