City Engineer/Operations Dir. Chris Young thanked the
Council for coming to the special meeting. Three bids were opened on August 27, 2004. The lowest responsible bidder was J. Banicki Construction, Inc. at
$1,104,286.99. The award of this contract will allow the City Engineer to
issue the Notice to Proceed within 10 working days. The project work consists
of full-width (two-lane) roadway and drainage improvements along Olive Ave.
from Dysart Road to El Mirage Road. Improvements include the reconstruction of
the existing street section, drainage improvements and traffic signal
improvements/upgrades at both intersections. This is the first of three phases
of street improvements that were “funded” by last year’s bond election. Phase
2 will be El Mirage Rd. (Northern – Olive) street reconstruction. Phase 3 will
be the intersection improvements at Dysart Rd. and Waddell Rd. Street
improvements/signal upgrades will dramatically improve traffic flows and
quality of “ride”. Drainage improvements will handle runoff from the “10-year”
storm thus greatly decreasing the number of times that Olive Avenue will need
to be closed due to flooding.
The contract amount is $1,104,286.99 to be funded out
“dedicated” General Obligations Bonds approved last year by the City of El
Mirage residents. Bonds are payable by the secondary property tax.
Mr. Young recommends awarding the contract to J Banicki
Construction, Inc. in the amount of $1,104,286.99.
Councilmember White made a motion to approve the
award of contract for the Olive Avenue (Dysart – El Mirage) Street
Reconstruction to J. Banicki Construction, Inc.; seconded by Xavier Bedolla.
