RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the approval of Construction Contract Change Order No. 1 with Mercer Construction Company (Contract #20180066) for IFB No. 3055-17 FM1833 & FM666 TWDB Waterline Improvement Project.
BACKGROUND
On March 14, 2018, the Commissioners Court entered into a contract with Mercer Construction Company (Contract #20180066) for IFB No. 3055-17 FM1833 & FM666 TWDB Waterline Improvement Project.
DISCUSSION
The work for the final tie-in for water connections was delayed, which resulted in a re-mobilization cost.  The delay was not caused by the contractor.  In order to complete the final tie-in, Nueces Water Supply Corporation (water provider) was required to receive approval from the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) prior to providing water service.  The approval process took 7 months and in the meantime, the contractor had to demobilize.  Upon receiving PUC approval and remobilization, the contractor discovered additional bends that were necessary to complete the work.  No item on this change order affected or changed the original footprint of the project’s scope and/or area.
 
PO #359575 was created for this contract.  $217,460 was identified to be paid from Department #2792 – Texas Department of Agriculture Cindy Park grant (grant period has expired) and the remaining amount of $132,868.50 was identified to be paid from Department #2795 – Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) funding (contract still active).  This change order has been reviewed by TWDB staff and preliminarily approved.  Funding is currently available in Department #2795 to cover the expense. 
 
Form 1295 #2019-502744 was submitted to the Texas Ethics Commission.  The House Bill 89 Verification form is attached to this agenda item.
