RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the execution of Amendment No. 2 to the Reimbursement Contract for Governmental Entities with the Coastal Bend Bays and Estuaries Program for the Hazel Bazemore Park Ecological Enhancements Project, Phase II.
BACKGROUND
The Coastal Bend Bays and Estuaries Program (CBBEP) is a local non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to researching, restoring and protecting the bays and estuaries of the Texas Coastal Bend. The mission of the CBBEP is the implementation of the Coastal Bend Bays Plan, which is to protect and restore the health and productivity of the bays and estuaries while supporting continued economic growth and public use of the bays. The plan identifies specific actions that will benefit the bay system and the users of the bays and includes projects for which CBBEP provides grant funding.
DISCUSSION
On February 29, 2012, the Commissioners Court executed a Reimbursement contract in the amount of $25,000 for Phase I of the Hazel Bazemore Park Ecological Enhancements Project. Phase I included the construction of a marsh overlook, improved ADA accessible access, and improvements to the interpretive and educational opportunities for visitors.

On December 18, 2013, the Commissioners Court executed a Reimbursement contract in the amount of $57,000 for Phase II. Phase II will expand the park with a new nature trail component and improve open water habitat.

On November 6, 2014, the Commissioners Court executed Amendment No. 1 to extend the contract end date from October 31, 2014 to March 31, 2015. This was due to a delay in contracting for engineering services. On September 17, 2014, a Professional Services Contract was approved by the Commissioners Court and executed with Naismith Engineering.

Amendment No. 2 proposes to extend the term of the contract to December 31, 2015. In addition, the schedule of deliverables for the contract are also amended.

There is no fiscal impact related to this item. The grant award amount remains at $57,000.
