CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 19

Meeting Date: June 26, 2007

Subject/Title: Adopt a Resolution approving and authorizing the City Manager or designee to execute a Professional Services Agreement with SNG & Associates, Inc. for as-needed plan check services.

Prepared by: Jessica Ward, Technical Assistant II

Submitted by: Bailey Grewal, Director of Public Work/City Engineer


RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution approving and authorizing the City Manager or designee to execute a Professional Services Agreement with SNG & Associates, Inc. for plan check services on an as-needed basis through June 30, 2008, in an amount not to exceed $100,000, plus a 10% contingency, for a total amount of $110,000.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
Throughout Fiscal Year 2006-07, 29 new residential and commercial development projects were submitted to the City for plan review and permit issuance. For these projects, the development engineering division reviewed and approved 18 Final Maps, creating 1,279 lots for recordation, sets of grading plans totaling 217 sheets, 54 sets of improvement plans totaling 714 sheets and 20 sets of joint trench utility plans totaling 314 sheets.

With continuous growth in development projects within the current City limits, especially commercial development, and the past years annexation and rapid development schedule for the Vineyards at Marsh Creek, the workload for plan check performed by City staff becomes excessive to provide timely and responsive service. To provide realistic and quality service to the development community and to the residents of the City, the Engineering Division has in past fiscal years procured professional services from various consultants for on call plan check review, which has been beneficial to the City.

Staff has reviewed the proposal and interviewed SNG & Associates, Inc. and is confident they will provide exceptional service to the City; therefore, staff recommends that Council award the professional services contract to SNG & Associates, Inc. on an as-needed basis to perform various professional plan check services.

FISCAL IMPACT
There will be no cost incurred by the City, as deposits made by developers fully fund development plan checking.
