Staff Summary
* Route 83 south of Route 22 has two force mains on the east side and one force main on the west side of the road. A failure of one of the force mains occurred in late 2019 approximately 500 feet south of Route 22. The repair was hampered by a lack of shut off valves for the force main. This project will include the installation of a 13-foot-by-15-foot concrete vault for realignment, consolidation, and valving of the force mains to modernize piping for future maintenance.
* The County received bids from four contractors for this work ranging from $235,650 to $457,530. Award of this contract is recommended to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder, IHC Construction Companies, LLC, who best meets the needs of the County in the amount of $235,650.
* This resolution authorizes and directs the County Purchasing Agent to execute a contract with IHC Construction Companies, LLC, in the amount of $235,650.
