RECOMMENDATION
Approve a finding for the method of procurement (request of competitive bids) for the installation of water transmission lines along Farm Road 1833 & Farm Road 666 in relation to the Cindy Park Colonia; and authorize the purchasing agent to publish a notice.
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.
DISCUSSION
On February 24, 2016, Nueces County Commissioners Court executed a contract with Bridges Specialties Inc. (Contract #20160044) for IFB No. 3001-15 – Surface Water Lines and Connections in Cindy Park Colonia. The contract and subsequent change order totaled $192,546.22 and left the County with money still available in the grant. On March 7, 2017, the Commissioners Court executed Amendment No. 1 to allow for 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. The new work is for transmission lines from Nueces Water Supply Corporation’s Banquete site to the Cindy Park colonia so that the residents can receive surface water. County department number 2792 has been established to track expenses for this project. To date, expenses paid out and encumbered total $282,546.22, which leaves $217,453.78 to be spent on the additional work.
