Information
RECOMMENDATION
Authorize execution of Supplemental Agreement No. 3 between Nueces County and LNV, Inc. for engineering services for RFQ 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.

On September 2, 2015, the Court executed Supplemental Agreement No. 1 to add language to the contract in accordance with the Texas Department of Agriculture grant agreement.

On November 16, 2016, the Court executed Supplemental Agreement No. 2 to extend LNV’s contract to November 23, 2017.
DISCUSSION
The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) has granted Nueces County an 18-month extension for this project in order to fully expend the grant funds. TDA has allowed the County to amend the Performance Statement to include additional water line work that will eventually provide a greater benefit to the residents of the Cindy Park colonia. With this amendment to the TDA contract, the LNV contract must also be amended also to include the additional work outlined.

The County Attorney’s Office reviewed the contract language and drafted Supplemental Agreement No. 3. LNV’s contract amount will increase by $30,000 (from $60,000 to $90,000) to cover the additional construction administration costs. However, this will result in no cost to the County since it will be paid from Texas Community Development Block Grant funds, County Department #2792.
