RECOMMENDATION
Authorize execution of Supplemental Agreement No. 1 between Nueces County and LNV, Inc. for engineering services for RFQ No. 2977-14 surface water lines and connections in Cindy Park.
BACKGROUND
On November 18, 2014, the Commissioners Court executed a grant contract with the Texas Department of Agriculture. The project is for the installation of surface water lines and related household connections in the Cindy Park colonia, located off of FM 666 between FM 1833 and CR 48, along Cindy Lane. The residents currently rely on a dilapidated well or do not have a potable water source.

On April 1, 2015, the Commissioners Court executed an Engineering Services Contract with LNV, Inc. for engineering services for RFQ 2977-14 surface water lines and connections in Cindy Park. The contract is for a state-registered engineer/engineering firm to design and oversee the implementation of surface water lines to be installed and residents will be given an opportunity to tie into the new water system, if they so wish, at no cost to them since the project is designed to assist those with low-to-moderate incomes.
DISCUSSION
The Texas Department of Agriculture, upon review of the engineer’s contract, is requiring the County to add some language into the contract. The additional language includes provisions regarding the Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 3 of the HUD Act of 1968 among others.

The County Attorney’s Office reviewed the contract language and drafted Supplemental Agreement No. 1. There is no fiscal impact related to this agenda item. LNV’s contract amount remains at $60,000 and will be paid from Texas Community Development Block Grant funds.
