City Council approved change orders


During review of the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system, it was determined that the tie point and station service metering was not included in the design specification. Staff feels having this information available within the diesel plant controls system will be of great benefit for monitoring and recording real time gross and net plant generations both locally as well as remotely.

This resolution approves Change Order No. 1 with Eagle Electric in the amount of $7,220 for addition of selected parameters to the diesel plant SCADA system.

The contract amount will increase to $573,220, and funding will be provided from electric reserve funds.

-Council approved a resolution approving Change Order #3 with Civil Design Advantage for the Pella Sports Park Project

This resolution approves Change Order #3 with Civil Design Advantage (CDA) for the Pella Sports Park Project and increases the contract amount by $4,275.87 for additional professional services for the septic system for the Sports Park including multiple re-designs, additional meetings and communications with the Department of Natural Resources & Marion County Environmentalist.

The sub-consultant for CDA, I & S Group, was finally successful at getting our preferred sand filter design approved by all parties, and thereby, Marion County issued a permit for the construction of the sand filter design as set forth in the original plans and specifications and as modified by addendums.

Fields for Our Future will be responsible for 100 percent of the $4,275.87, which is in accordance with the contractual agreement for funding construction of the complex.
