Authorizing a $138,624.00 Contract Amendment No. 1 to a contract with Wilson & Company, Inc., Engineers & Architects Foreign Corporation, for a total contract amount of $388,624.00, for additional on-call engineering services for land development review.


NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Stacy Lowe, Long Range Planning, spoke to this ordinance. This ordinance will allow for on-call professional services with an already existing contractor for land development review of public improvements for new projects. The City Planning Department has reached the maximum amount on these contracts. To assure timely review of public improvements associated with development projects and work toward public infrastructure review times to meet deadlines, the service contract has to be renewed. The renewal amount matches the amount of funding that was reduced by previous Council actions and due to unforeseen changes in staffing levels, the existing contractors need to be utilized at a higher level while the City seeks to fill the staffing vacancies.
