2.  Authorize the execution of Change Order No. 1 in the amount of $185,947.01 to City Secretary Contract No. 50672 with Jackson Construction, Ltd., for Walsh Ranch Sanitary Sewer Main Extension, Phase IVA Project thereby increasing the contract amount to $3,010,558.01. (City Project No. 100924)

 
DISCUSSION:

On March 27, 2018, (M&C C-28648) the City Council authorized a contract with Jackson Construction, Ltd, in the amount of $2,824,611.00 for Walsh Ranch Sanitary Sewer Main Extension, Phase IVA.

Subsequent to execution of the contract for the project, it was determined that the 24 and 30-inch sanitary sewer pipe material that was specified in the contract documents was not in compliance with current Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) specifications pertaining to allowable infiltration rate, reduced to 10 gallons per inch diameter. The plastic pipe that was included in the contract specifications as an option and selected by all bidders has an allowable infiltration rate of 25 gallons per inch diameter.

Change Order No. 1 will allow for the replacement of the current pipe with heavy wall PVC pipe which meets the TCEQ specifications. Staff considers the unit price proposed by the contractor for the heavy wall PVC pipe to be fair and reasonable.

This project will have no impact on the Water Department's operating budget.

M/WBE OFFICE – A waiver of the goal for MBE/SBE subcontracting requirements was granted by the M/WBE Office, in compliance with the M/WBE or DBE Ordinance for reason of the second paragraph under the Discussion section, above.

The project is located within the City limits in COUNCIL DISTICT 3.

 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:

The Director of Finance certifies that upon approval of the above recommendation and adoption of the attached appropriation ordinance, funds will be available in the Water and Sewer Capital Project Fund 2018 for the Walsh Ranch Sanitary Sewer Main Extension, Phase IVA Project. After this transfer, the available balance in Water and Sewer Capital Project Fund 2018 will be $992,605.00 for future capital projects.
