PUBLIC WORKS & CONTRACTS 12-18-02
Keith Browning, Director of Public Works/County Engineer, requested authorization to renew the contracts for chip sealing and pavement marking for 2003. Browning explained that in order to renew the contracts for the next season, the contracts stipulate the County must notify the contractors of our intention to renew by December 31. Both contracts allow for a 25% reduction in contract quantities. For chip sealing we typically plan on 50 miles of sealing, so a 25% reduction would result in sealing 37.5 miles. It is currently estimated that we can reduce the Road & Bridge budget by $100,000 for chip sealing and $30,000 for striping and still meet the terms of each contract. Johnson made a motion to approve the renewal of the contracts for chip sealing with Hi-Plains Sand Co., Kanopolis, KS, and pavement marking with Midwest Striping, Grand Island, NE for 2003. McElhaney seconded and the motion carried.
