A Resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute an agreement with Iseler Demolition Inc., for the demolition of the 2MG Gordonville Tank No. 1, in the City of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
This project consists of the demolition, removal, and disposal of an existing 2,000,000 gallon welded steel ground storage water tank located at 2990 Gordonville Road as indicated in the Project Specifications prepared by Horner & Shifrin, Inc. and dated August 2016, for the City of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
The job specific provisions were provided by Horner & Shifrin, Inc., reviewed and approved for bidding, the Notice to Bid publicly advertised, and bids taken on September 13, 2016. Two (2) contractors responded with bids ranging from the highest of $334,754 to the low of $45,900. One of the two bids was under the Engineer's Estimate of $75,000. The low bid was submitted by Iseler Demolition Inc.
Funding for this project is provided by the Enterprise Water Fund.
SUSTAINABILITY: ECONOMIC, ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL IMPACTS
The demolition of the 2MG Gordonville Tank No. 1, constructed in 1954, is due to the failing truss-type roof support structure and the poor condition of the interior and exterior coatings. Multiple other deficiencies were also identified. A cost analysis (prepared by Horner & Shifrin) found the existing tank can be replaced with a more suitably sized, lower maintenance tank for about the same cost as rehabbing the existing tank.
Staff recommends the City Council, by motion, pass and approve the attached Resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into a contract with Iseler Demolition Inc., for the demolition of the 2MG Gordonville Tank No. 1.
