RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and Award IFB No. 2979-15 Nueces County Fallen Heroes Memorial Project.
BACKGROUND
The scope of work for the Base Bid consists of the demolition of the fountain stairs to make way for an accessible entry and stairs. Metal memorial panels will be fastened to the existing fountain walls, and new decorative paving will replace the fountain floor. A new subsurface drainage system will drain the fountain area, and connect to the existing drainage basin in front of the Courthouse. Five metal plaques will be illuminated and provide a narrative of the first responder departments of Nueces County. A sidewalk and ramp will be provided to connect the East parking lot to the memorial. The Courthouse monument sign will be demolished and replaced with a new monument sign. A separate monument sign will also be constructed for the Fallen Heroes Memorial. An interactive kiosk and new 25’ flagpole will be installed adjacent to the Memorial. New lighting will illuminate panels and plaques, up-light the existing trees, illuminate steps, ramps, and walks, and provide a beacon with an eternal beam of vertical light. The existing vegetation will be stripped to make way for new sod, plantings, and an irrigation system. Other improvements include new benches and trash receptacles.
