T. L. HANNA PARKING LOT CONSTRUCTION AND RESURFACING PROJECT
Mr. Brooks distributed a Bid Tabulation sheet. He reported that the low bidder was Ashemore Brothers (including three add alternates) for a total of $1,089,680.75. After some initial confusion about the budget estimates for the T. L. Hanna and Westside paving projects, Mr. Brooks clarified that the budget estimates for the T. L. Hanna and Westside projects were $830,139 and $1,041,252 respectively. The Westside project will be bid on May 31, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. He also stated that we are projecting a $500,000 - $750,000 funding deficit with the overall building program. With board approval, the deficit could be taken out of the fund balance reserve. Mr. Brooks then gave a brief explanation of the add alternates listed on the bid tabulation sheet. The Administration recommended board approval of Ashemore Brothers (including all add alternates), subject to satisfying the bid protest period and providing that all of the requirements of the District Procurement Code are met.
Following some discussion, Mrs. Huitt made a motion the Board approve the bid from Ashemore Brothers (including all add alternates) for a total of $1,041,252, subject to satisfying the bid protest period and providing that all of the requirements of the District Procurement Code are met. Mr. Smith seconded the motion, which carried unanimously.
