Accept Improvements and Authorize Final Payment to Nip Kelley Equipment Company, Inc. for the Meadowbrook Storage Tank.
The project consisted of supplying all labor, materials, equipment, tools and supervision for the construction of a 1,000,000 gallon ground water storage tank including electrical, instrumentation and piping modifications and all other appurtenances as specified in the bid documents. This tank was constructed beside an existing Meadowbrook water storage tank in the area off of Perryville Road.
The Engineer's Final Report for this work is attached and it provides further details.
The construction work, including the work added in Change Order # 1, was completed for
$ 1,262,179.00. The funding is provided by the Capital Improvement Water System Sales Tax and by refinancing water system bonds.
SUSTAINABILITY: ECONOMIC, ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL IMPACTS
The Meadowbrook water storage tanks provide potable water to City residents in a large, northern area of the City and are critical to the City's water system. This area has built up considerably in recent years and the existing small tank simply could not provide the volume and pressure needed to serve so many users. Reliable and safe potable water is one of the attractions for new people and businesses considering moving to our City. New residents and businesses in turn add to the City's income by increasing the volume of user fees, sales taxes, and patronage of City facilities. These same situations create a more favorable environment and social impact putting the City in a better position to attract more residents, business and industries.
Staff recommends Council accept, by motion, the improvements as indicated and approve the final payment of $ 158,172.56 to Nip Kelley Equipment Company, Incorporated.
