Athlone Way Storm Drain Rehabilitation Project - North Fair Oaks Area [County Project No. R1800 - F149 (4B)]



Adopt a resolution awarding and authorizing execution of a contract for the Athlone Way Storm Drain Rehabilitation Project.


Previous Board Action

Adopted Resolution No. 65199 on April 16, 2002, adopting Plans and Specifications, determining prevailing wage scales, and calling for sealed proposals for the above referenced project.



On Tuesday, May 14, 2002, bids were accepted for this project and subsequently referred to this office for checking and recommendation. The bids have been checked and the bid of:


Casey Construction

620 Handley Trail

Emerald Hills, CA 94062


at $82,566.50 was the lowest bid received. The Engineer's estimate was $120,000. A summary of the bids received is as follows:



Casey Construction

$ 82,566.50



Stoloski & Gonzalez, Inc.

$ 84,071.50



K J Woods Construction Inc.

$ 93,952.00


We have reviewed the contract documents and have determined that the affirmative action program of Casey Construction is in accordance with the current Affirmative Action Guidelines.


Vision Alignment

We believe our recommendation is consistent with the Shared Commitment to "Ensure Basic Health and Safety for All" and Goal Number 7 "Maintain and Enhance the Public Safety of All Residents and Visitors," as it improves the storm drain system to reduce flooding for the protection of public and private property in the area.


Fiscal Impact

The total estimated cost of construction and contingencies is $91,000, which includes a ten percent (10%) contingency as the work is bid on a unit basis (i.e., per linear foot of pipe, etc.). The contingency is used to pay the Contractor for any additional units of items used, as the actual units will depend on the actual material placed and other unknown or unforeseen work that may be required. Approximately 50% of the work is in the roadway and is proposed to be financed with Road Funds (approximately $45,500); and the remaining work in the easement areas is proposed to be financed with County Service Area 8 Funds (approximately $45,500) that have been made available in the 2001-02 Fiscal Year Budget. There is no impact to the General Fund.


A form of resolution has been approved by County Counsel.
