Body

 

Dear Sir:

 

In accordance with Section 11.5 of the Purchasing Act, on July 16, 2018, the Acting Director of Maintenance and Operations declared an operating emergency in an amount not to exceed $50,000.00 to Independent Mechanical Industries, Inc., to make immediate repairs to TARP sluice gates in the North Service Area, as they are essential to the reduction of CSOs and compliance with NPDES permits.  It was then determined that the estimated cost of repairs was $400,000.00.  Therefore, on August 2, 2018, the Board approved an increase to the Purchase Order of an amount of $350,000.00, to an amount not to exceed $400,000.00.

 

Final completion of all work, including the replacement of the hydraulic cylinders at Kirie Control Gate 5 and North Branch Control Gate 8, was achieved on December 26, 2018.  The final cost of the labor and material purchased under the emergency contract was $147,715.67.

 

Requested, John P. Murray, Director of Maintenance and Operations, SO’C

Respectfully Submitted, Josina Morita, Chairman Committee on Maintenance and Operations
