Carla O’Dell, Lincoln County Department of Roads, presented her findings concerning the bid/proposal on the Lake Maloney Hiking and Biking Trail Phase IV.  The references were contacted for both Baker and Associates, which were favorable, and TC Engineering which provided references with no contact information, although they have done work for Lincoln County previously.  She also contacted both entities about the construction observation for both firms, to which they responded.  Baker and Associated responded that their intent was to have at least 5 full days or the equivalent number of partial days on site.  They would be on site for any major pours, and update meetings.  TC Engineering is to be onsite for major activities including grading, paving, retaining wall construction, as well as meetings with the property owners as needed.

 

Jim States, President of the Homeowners Association at Lake Maloney, stated that TC Engineering has been involved in the previous Phases of this project.  They have talked with the home owners and are aware of issues with the terrain and the proximity of the houses to the road.  He stated that he was not contacted by Baker and Associates, and is not aware of them coming to visually inspect the properties involved.  Mr. States “feels it is worth having a local company readily available”.

 

Brent Burklund, of TC Engineering, stated that they are within the percentages allowable by the Federal Government and presented some background information on the project.

 

Hewgley commented that the County Board does understand that this is money that ultimately comes from the tax payers as Federal Funds and would need justification for accepting a higher bid.  In his opinion the “Construction Observation” is a factor.  He believes that the Board is justified in looking at the higher bid/proposal because of the time and complexity of the project.

 

Deterding also believes that the onsite time during and after construction is an important factor.

 

Brian Hope of NPPD stated that TC Engineering’s knowledge of the project and the time they have already put into it should be taken into account.

 

Henry stated that the comments presented today, has helped him to make this decision.

 

Motion by Hewgley, seconded by Henry to approve the bid/proposal from T. C. Engineering Inc. for design, construction and inspection service of Lake Maloney Hiking and Biking Trail Phase IV in the amount of $45,500.00.  Upon roll call Hewgley, Henry and Deterding voted “aye”.  Nays, none.
