-Approved a resolution approving a Professional Services Agreement between the City of Pella and Burns & McDonnell in connection with the Power Plant Deconstruction Project.

This resolution approves a Professional Services Agreement with Burns & McDonnell (BMcD) for construction observation services for the demolition/removal of the City’s power plant. As background, in May of 2012 the City began to receive 100% of its energy from Missouri River Energy Services and as a result, the City’s power plant is no longer supplying energy for the City. Over the last several months, Burns and McDonnell has been working with City staff to develop plans and specifications and contract documents for the removal of the City’s power plant from its current site and restoration of the area to green space.

The fees paid to Bums and McDonnell under the proposed “Professional Services Agreement” are based on a weekly rate and are estimated to cost $265,000. It is important to note, included in this estimate is a full-time project representative provided by Burns and McDonnell for the asbestos removal from the site, which is estimated to take approximately 10 weeks. For the remainder of the project, Burns and McDonnell will be providing bi-weekly site visits to the project. The council will need to approve a construction observation services agreement with the project engineer before the bids can be sought for the deconstruction project. This is because the level of construction observation services needs to be identified in the general terms and conditions of the contract for the deconstruction.
