RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and award RFQ 3009-16 Engineering Services for Surface Water Lines & Connections in The Ranch Colonia.
BACKGROUND
Nueces County is seeking to contract with a state-registered engineer/engineering firm for services for the implementation of a project to be made possible through assistance from the Texas Community Development Block Grant (TxCDBG) program. The County has received a grant for the installation of surface water lines and related household connections in The Ranch colonia, located off of FM 666 between FM 1833 and CR 48, along Ranch Road. The residents currently rely on dilapidated wells or do not have a potable water source. Under this project, surface water lines will 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 January 6, 2016, the Commissioners Court executed an agreement between The Texas Department of Agriculture and Nueces County Contract No. 7215115 the Texas Community Development Block Grant Program (TxCDBG) 2015-2016 Colonia Fund: Construction (CFC), in relation to the Ranch Colonia. The engineer is required to prepare design plans and specifications for the construction bid packets and to provide construction oversight and inspection. The grant award is $483,333 and the County will match $24,167 with administrative oversight by the County’s Grants Administration Department.
