Adopt a Resolution approving, and authorizing the City Manager or designee to execute an Agreement for Professional Services with Abey Arnold Associates a landscape architectural consulting firm in the preparation of construction and bid documents for Summerset Park improvements.

On October 21, 1997, City Council for the City of Brentwood approved Back Nine at Brentwood Country Club Subdivision #7940. As part of the subdivision approval, the developer Blackhawk/Nunn also included a 10 acre public park along Fairview Avenue between Baldwin Drive and Regent Court.

BACKGROUND, Abey Arnold Associates (AAA) is a consulting firm on retainer by the City of Brentwood to perform various landscape architectural services. The AAA landscape architectural consulting firm prepared a Conceptual Plan for the City and Conceptual Plan was presented to the residents adjacent to the park at a public meeting on February 2005. At the public meeting, the Conceptual Plan was approved by the residents.

The Agreement for Professional Services with the same landscape architectural consulting firm that prepared the initial Conceptual Plan will reduce time and expenditure of funds to familiarize another consultant with the project.

The approval of Professional Service Agreement will require expenditure of Capital Improvement Plan funds from Summerset Park Project to procure construction documents and preparation of bid documents. Upon approval of construction documents and specifications, City staff will return to City Council to request approval of the documents and advertisement of bid on the park improvements. Summerset Park CIP Project funds was approved by City Council of the City of Brentwood on June 12, 2007.




WHEREAS, on June 26, 2007, by resolution, the City Council approved 2006/ - 2010/12 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to include funding for landscape architectural services in the preparation of construction and bid documents for Summerset Park improvements.

NOW, THERFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Brentwood approves and authorizes the City Manager or designee to execute Agreement for Professional Services with Abey Arnold Associates, a landscape architectural consulting firm, for the preparation of construction and bid documents for Summerset Park improvements in the contract amount of $200,000.

No payment made hereunder prior to completion and acceptance of the Project shall be construed as evidence of acceptance of any part of the Services.

B. If Consultant fails to cure the default within seven (7) days after written notice thereof, City may, at its sole option, take possession of any Documents or other materials (in paper and electronic form) prepared or used by Consultant in connection with the Project and (1) provide any such work, labor, or materials as may be necessary to overcome the default and deduct the cost thereof from any money then due or thereafter to become due to Consultant under this Agreement; or (2) terminate Consultant's right to proceed with this Agreement.

C. In the event City elects to terminate, City shall have the right to immediate possession of all Documents and work in progress prepared by Consultant, whether located at the Project, at Consultant's place of business, or at the offices of a subconsultant, and may employ any other person or persons to finish the design work and provide the materials therefore. In case of such default termination, Consultant shall not be entitled to receive any further payment under this Agreement until the Project is completely finished. At that time, if the unpaid balance of the amount to be paid under this Agreement exceeds the expenses incurred by City in obtaining a new landscape architectural consulting service for the Project, such excess shall be paid by City to Consultant, but, if such expense shall exceed such unpaid balance, then Consultant shall promptly pay to City the amount by which such expense exceeds such unpaid balance. The expense referred to in the last sentence shall include expenses incurred by City in causing the services called for under this Agreement to be provided by others, for attorneys' fees, and for any costs or damages sustained by City by reason of Consultant's default or defective work.

D. In addition to the foregoing right to terminate for default, City reserves the absolute right to terminate this Agreement without cause, upon 72-hours' written notice to Consultant. In the event of termination without cause, Consultant shall be entitled to payment in an amount not to exceed the Maximum Contract Amount, which shall be calculated as follows: (1) Payment for Services then satisfactorily completed and accepted by City, plus (2) Payment for Additional Services satisfactorily completed and accepted by City, plus (3) Reimbursable Expenses actually incurred by Consultant, as approved by City. The amount of any payment made to Consultant prior to the date of termination of this Agreement shall be deducted from the amounts described in (1), (2) and (3) above. Consultant shall not be entitled to any claim or lien against City or the Project for any additional compensation or damages in the event of such termination and payment. In addition, the City's right to withhold funds under Section 6(E) shall be applicable in the event of a termination for convenience.

E. If this Agreement is terminated by City for default and it is later determined that the default termination was wrongful, such termination automatically shall be converted to and treated as a termination for convenience under this Article and Consultant shall be entitled to receive only the amounts payable hereunder in the event of a termination for convenience.


A. The plans, specifications, estimates, programs, reports, models, and other material prepared by or on behalf of Consultant under this Agreement including all drafts and working documents, and including electronic and paper forms (collectively the "Documents"), shall be and remain the property of the City, whether the Services or Project is completed or not. Consultant shall deliver all Documents to City upon (1) the substantial completion date of the Services, (2) the date of termination of this Agreement for any reason, or (3) at any time requested by City, upon five (5) days written notice.

B. The Documents may be used by City and its agents, employees, representatives, and assigns, in whole or in part, or in modified form, for all purposes City may deem advisable, without further employment of or payment of any compensation to Consultant; provided, however, that if this Agreement is terminated for any reason prior to completion of the Project and if under such circumstances City uses, or engages the services of and directs another Consultant to use, such documents, City agrees to hold Consultant harmless from any and all liability, costs, and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and disbursements), relative to claims arising out of matters and/or events which occur subsequent to the termination of this Agreement as a result of causes other than the fault or negligence of Consultant, or anyone for whose acts it is responsible, in preparation of the Documents. Consultant shall not be responsible for deficiencies solely attributable to modifications to the Documents performed by others, or that arise from use of the Documents in connection with a project or site other than that shown in the Documents.

C. All reports, information, data, and exhibits prepared or assembled by Consultant in connection with the performance of its services pursuant to this Agreement are confidential until released by the City to the public, and the Consultant shall not make any of these documents or information available to any individual or organization not employed by the Consultant or the City without the written consent of the City before any such release.
