    • Document
  • Motion to enter into a contract with Mill Creek Construction Company for Mill Creek Park and Stilson Park Walking Trail Repairs in the amount of $95,045.00, to be funded by TSPLOST.
    • includes repairs to the asphalt walking trails at Mill Creek Park and Stilson Park. Many areas of both trails have been damaged by tree roots, creating tripping hazards. The contract also includes repairing areas that have deteriorated due to poor subgrade and drainage, as well as the repair of several damaged areas in the Mill Creek Park parking lot. The low quote from Mill Creek Construction met all requirements of the County’s specifications.
    • Quotes were requested from four contractors and three quotes were received
      • The low quote of $95,045.00 is higher than the County Engineer’s cost estimate, which was $60,000. The higher cost is due to the rising price of asphalt and fuel, along with the difficulties in estimating costs for the operation of accessing different areas of the parks with equipment.
      • The County Engineer recommends approval of the low quote because there are safety issues that are being corrected by this work, and it is unlikely prices will change much in the next few months. Also, if the project were to be quoted again or put out to bid, it is likely that the same contractors would again be submitting quotes or bids.
      • The Finance Department confirms that there are TSPLOST funds available to cover the extra cost.
