Proposed City Council Motion:

FIRST MOTION: I move for a second reading of an Ordinance awarding the bid for Project No. 48731483 for the Lee's Summit to Tri-County Water Authority Emergency Water Supply Inter-Connections Project to Beemer Construction Co., Inc. in the amount of $133,480.00, and authorizing the City Manager to execute an agreement for the same.

Background:

In 2017, a Tri-County water transmission main was installed across the City of Lee’s Summit.  The 16-inch transmission main passes near the Ranson Road Water Tower and the Scherer Road Water Tower.  This project will install emergency interconnections between the two water systems at the Ranson Tower and the Scherer Tower.  The improvements at each location consist of 16-inch piping and valving to accommodate future flow meters and vaults.  Both the Tri-County Water Authority and the City of Lee’s Summit Water Utilities Department consider installing these emergency interconnections beneficial to providing an adequate supply of safe drinking water to customers in Lee’s Summit and customers of Tri-County Water Authority.    

 

 

 

Impact/Analysis:

Water Utilities advertised for bids for Project No. 48731483 on August 11, 2021. Potential bidders were notified through QuestCDN and on the City website.  Four (4) responsive bids were received by the bid opening date of September 1, 2021 (one was rejected due to not providing signed bid bond documentation).  City staff reviewed the bids and Beemer Construction Co., Inc. was determined to be the lowest and most responsible bidder.

 

 

Timeline:

Work to commence after October 1, 2021.  60 days to substantial completion and 90 days for final payment.
