RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider selection of International Consulting Engineers (ICE), related to the Hazel Bazemore Boat Ramp Rehabilitation project; authorize execution of a Professional Services Contract with ICE for services related to the Hazel Bazemore Boat Ramp Rehabilitation Project.
BACKGROUND
On August 1, 2013, Nueces County received a letter from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), stating funding had become available for the renovation of the Hazel Bazemore Park public boat ramp on the Nueces River. The Boating Access Committee earmarked $386,307 of federal Boating Access grant funding for the project. An official contract between TPWD and Nueces County is under review by United States Fish and Wildlife Services.
DISCUSSION
The engineer will perform engineering and design services, prepare construction plans and assist in the coordination of the construction bid process. Other services include preparation of exhibits for grant submission as well as United States Army Corps of Engineer permit application and coordination.

Engineering, design and permitting costs are eligible for reimbursement retroactively from the TPWD once the grant contract is executed.

The maximum amount payable under the contract is $74,971.00. The grant award amount from TPWD is $386,307 with a required match of $96,576.75 (in-kind or cash).
