Museum planning, business model, planning, operating procedure and cost estimating services are included in. 00:01:35
Jared, talk a little bit about this firm. Why were they chosen? 00:01:41
This was there were three different ones and I thought, the other two. 00:01:45
We had two consultants come in and present. They they submitted their qualifications first. We thought it be better to interview 00:01:50
both of them to kind of get a feel of what. 00:01:54
Who we thought were the best fit for this project. 00:01:59
CCR has a lot of. 00:02:01
Experience in Birmingham. 00:02:03
With with civil rights trails civil rights projects. 00:02:05
So we thought they would be the best and they have done a lot of work with the foundation. We were. We were at hand, in hand with 00:02:08
the foundation and selecting. 00:02:11
So tell me exactly what what are they going to do that are they going to conceptually? 00:02:14
Put this together. Evaluate the structure. What's there now? What would be the best path forward? What kind of budget we'd be 00:02:20
looking at? 00:02:23
Strategic planning and business planning for the Foundation. 00:02:27
Going forward and just kind of recommend what they think would be the best use of this space. This will also be that will also 00:02:31
have a lot of community outreach for the community input into what. 00:02:36
Yes. Well, I mean so conceptually. 00:02:41
They'll come up with what we think this is going to look like too, right? Yes. Recommendations on what are we? 00:02:44
I mean is the plan right now I'm probably asking the question they're going to decide to recommend to you, but are we that 00:02:51
historic building that's there, would we be retrofitting and? 00:02:55
Updating that building, or potentially if that's what they think the best use of this space in the area is OK. 00:03:00
That that is what this is about to get their recommendation on how to proceed forward best with the. 00:03:06
With the land, with the property and the building. 00:03:12
And then that would be brought to projects. That is correct. Correct. And this is of course within budget, I know. OK, questions 00:03:15
by committee members. Yes, Sir. Do you know the timeline? 00:03:20
That we're looking forward to the firm coming back to us. This is where the. 00:03:25
Yeah. What they submitted would be 20 weeks roughly from when we engage with them to where we get to that 30% kind of pause point 00:03:31
where we have their initial recommendation. 00:03:36
That we would then kind of evaluate moving forward, determining a budget project. 00:03:40
So by the end of the year. 00:03:45
Correct. It should be OK. 00:03:46
So, so when we say it's within budget. 00:03:48
Is that? 00:03:51
Is that as a subset. 00:03:53
Of the larger civil rights. 00:03:55
Trail budget or is there a specific? 00:03:59
Something set aside for the. 00:04:01
The Barber shop. 00:04:03
This is for overall project so within this is from Elevate. So there is a civil rights. 00:04:04
Trail line within elevate right overall project. 00:04:11
This contract will fit within that project. It's it's in there. 00:04:15
It's been funded through fiscal year 22 and 23, two different funding amounts, but it is the civil rights line out of which are 00:04:20
always point. I don't have any other questions. 00:04:24
Yeah, Food. And second all in favor, say aye, aye, item number two is approved. 00:04:30

This is to repair and upgrade the gate outside of the collections building. 00:04:52
And it is fully funded out of the Fletcher operations budget. 00:04:56
So. 00:04:59
Is this just, Well, is this just a? 00:05:00
Some I run into it, we just upgraded making a better no. It's been out for several years now. So this will increase the security 00:05:03
at the flash point. That's a good thing. Questions. 00:05:07
So moved second, moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye. Item number three is approved. 00:05:15

To whatever phase two, absolutely. 00:08:32
The, you know, talking about the road that's torn up in front of the Synovus building. 00:08:35
Where are we on that? It sounds like there's finally some movement on that. We're all, yeah, we've been in a lengthy delay of a 00:08:40
private utilities. We've got some movement on those as well. They're wrapping up completion of that. Hopefully the contractor 00:08:45
moved back in on site within the next week or two. 00:08:49
And we can continue the the roadway construction. 00:08:54
Which will stretch from Greensboro Ave. to 21st. 00:08:58
There'll be some traffic pattern changes during that that those phase, that phase of the project to wrap it up. 00:09:01
However, we're expecting an estimated completion potentially at the end of October please. So we might actually start seeing some 00:09:08
work then again. 00:09:11
Yes, yes, that's correct. That's good. What is the original, am I remembering correct originally this is supposed to be done by 00:09:15

Item number seven is Approval of work authorization with Atkins North America for design and bid phase regarding the FAA FY23 00:09:37
airfield lighting replacement project. Total is 182. 00:09:43
5/21/18 Jeff welcome. 00:09:50
Good afternoon. This work authorization request is for Atkins North America under their Master Service Agreement that provides 00:09:52
engineer services for the airport. 00:09:57
This project is the next FDA grant expected for the 2023 period. 00:10:01
We received our GO letters with the L dot called it to give us tentative notice to prepare. 00:10:07
So we're in the phase of providing the, the construction documents and the the bid documents to go out for public announcement. 00:10:13
To receive the overall bid. 00:10:20
For this project so. 00:10:23
Is that 90% federal government? 00:10:25
90% federal, 5% state if they are able to participate in this grant, and then 5% local, when will you know if they participate? 00:10:27
We will know because we received the grant award notice in January, we expect them to provide their 5%. 00:10:35
Questions from committee members. 00:10:43
So you have this is. 00:10:47
So this 182 is our 5%. 00:10:53
It is. 00:10:57
A, a part of the overall grant. So we will be funded the 95.5 for this 182, but there'll be a second portion for the construction. 00:10:58
Construction phase. So this is not just R 5%, this is still a 95.5 split for this design. 00:11:07
Before construction starts. 00:11:13
OK. 00:11:15
And I think it's made. 00:11:19
So we're needing 192,000. 00:11:22
We'll be redesigning bid phase services. 00:11:26
And this is. 00:11:30
Within a project that's 90% federal. 00:11:33
5% stake. 00:11:35
Himself recently. 00:11:37
Yes, Sir. We're the 182. 00:11:39
Our 5%, we'll be reimbursed 95% of this amount right here, so of the 182. 00:11:41
We're expecting to be reimbursed. 00:11:48
95% of that, yes, Sir. So that's 100% of the whole project. 00:11:50
That's the whole project. Yes Sir, this is just. 00:11:54
Design phase. 00:11:57
So moved and seconded all in favor. Say aye, aye? 00:11:59
Item number seven is approved. Item number 8 is authorization for the Chief Information Officer to execute contract agreements, 00:12:02
amendments and related documents for budgeted. 00:12:08
And contracted services provided to the City of Tuscaloosa by Apple. Jason Welcome. 00:12:13
Thank you. Good afternoon. 00:12:18
This is so that I can sign a business agreement with Apple and also be able to sign. 00:12:21
For example, if someone is a city employee and their phone is locked and they leave and we don't have a way to unlock it 00:12:31
currently, we have to send it back to them and store that we are who we say we are and they will. 00:12:36
Unlock this and this back so it will let me sign those type of documents. There's no. 00:12:42
Costs associated with either of these. It's. 00:12:47
Just so that I can. 00:12:50
Sign. 00:12:51
OK, so but you still are coming? 00:12:53
To this committee for anything cost for like. 00:12:56
Yes. 00:13:00
Question. 00:13:03
I'm good. 00:13:05
Entertain a Motion to approve. 00:13:05
So moved. 00:13:07
Moved and seconded. Any discussion all in favor say aye. 00:13:08
Item number 8 is approved. Thank you, Jason. 00:13:13
Is there any other business to be brought before our committee today? I I wouldn't. I would like to. Mr. Chairman. Yes Sir. 00:13:15
I want to apologize to people in my district for ceasefire. 00:13:22
There, it's our turn to get trouble, They. 00:13:26
Hit a line Friday and people without water. 00:13:30
And then. But I want to thank the city really came through and everyone by I forget what time. 00:13:36
Hours later had water restored. 00:13:42
It's that's not the first time there's been problems in, just the first. 00:13:45
Two weeks or less that they've been out there, they're in Windsor. 00:13:49
Druid Hills, Arcadia, Box Springs, and. 00:13:53
It's just a mess and they didn't notify it first either. 00:13:56
And so may need to bring them back in here. 00:14:02
At some point, Mr. Chairman, to your committee and scold them. 00:14:05
But. 00:14:10
Ohh for those watching Louis. 00:14:10
Has really responded well to him from our city department. So you if you're watching this L. 00:14:13
Kennedy. 00:14:19
At tuscaloosa.com. 00:14:20
Or of course, contact me, but. 00:14:22
But I know the city. 00:14:25
One thing good I've gotten from all the residents is how well the city has responded. 00:14:26
But. 00:14:30
Friday afternoon, no water. 00:14:31
Or low pressure, you know so. 00:14:33
Present time, or to your point, I know that there were several. 00:14:36
Several registers of District 3 that also. 00:14:40
Have had this problem and when I met with engineering last week. 00:14:43
I It might be a good idea, I might bring you with me, but we were going to talk maybe with Chris England because I'd like to 00:14:48
understand. 00:14:51
When we have these franchise agreements, what are our legal rights? 00:14:55
Because. 00:14:59
Ceasefire. 00:15:00
Has been brought before this committee twice. 00:15:02
I think no one expects. 00:15:07
They're not to be problems. I think my biggest issue is probably your point. What you're saying is it's just how we respond to it 00:15:09
and I still think there are a lot of things that. 00:15:13
I don't like about how people are notified what. 00:15:18
How our response time I I will echo what you said about the city. 00:15:23
Staff there. There were people that didn't have. 00:15:27
Water and there were some other things. They hit a sewer line too there. There was a bunch of problems. Yeah, that happened as 00:15:30
well in a general area and and I think that. 00:15:34
It would be helpful for. 00:15:38
This Council to. 00:15:40
Work together to figure out what we want that policy to be, that we can change because. 00:15:43
They are coming to other neighborhoods. 00:15:47
And other districts. 00:15:49
And the bad part is for ceasefire in my opinion, is. 00:15:51
95% of what they're doing may be great. 00:15:55
But the five or 10% is killing us, and it's. 00:15:59
Causing a lot of problems. 00:16:02
That. 00:16:05
That calls or costing. 00:16:05
The taxpayers money too, because we're having. 00:16:07
Spend a lot of our. 00:16:09
People's time, even off hours kills on the weekends and other stuff dealing with this. So and that's coming we're we're going. 00:16:11
Talk about that very soon. Well, it's very unfair that people start. 00:16:17
Going in yards and and just. 00:16:21
Putting things all in people's yards with no calls, no notifications, no nothing. And then that's just, first of all, that's wrong 00:16:25
and they know better because how many times have they been here? 00:16:30
So and and I apologize to our. 00:16:37
Get a granny. Clamp it over. 00:16:41
Citizenship. 00:16:43
Well, and I think. 00:16:46
And then three that I need to that. 00:16:47
I was told, you know, we were talking to engineering again about this because I probably worn them out with this. 00:16:51
Is. 00:16:55
What somebody is required to do legally, and I could probably ask Jimbo that over there. 00:16:58
And what they're actually doing is two different things, totally, but a PR. 00:17:03
To me, if I was new to market and I wanted people to sign up for my Internet, I think I would be trying to. 00:17:09
Maybe do some things that I'm not required to do by law and. 00:17:14
I'm not saying again that they are. They're not. But. 00:17:17
I'm going to get educated and I think the rest of the Council is too. Well, one of the questions. 00:17:20
Bringing that up, Yeah, well, one of them, and then I'll stop, Was that. 00:17:25
Ohh, we're just subcontractor. We don't know. Yeah, I keep hearing that. Yeah and so, so. 00:17:28
That's just that's that's not an answer, no. 00:17:34
No. 00:17:37
Not when they hit your lines. 00:17:38
No, not with the. Hit your lines and then your. 00:17:39
You have no water Friday night. It's power lines. 00:17:42
They did that. They did that in Arcadia too. 00:17:46
Those kind of mistakes could kill you so anyway. 00:17:51
Any other business? Thank you. Present time. Thank you. We're glad you're back too. It's great to be back. Any other things to be 00:17:54
brought before this committee? Otherwise, I will entertain a motion to adjourn. 00:17:58
Moved and seconded. All in favor? Say aye, aye. Our next public projects committee meeting is next. 00:18:05
Tuesday, July 25th. 00:18:11
We are dismissed. 00:18:13

That that is what this is about to get their recommendation on how to proceed forward best with the. 00:03:06
With the land, with the property and the building. 00:03:12
And then that would be brought to projects. That is correct. Correct. And this is of course within budget, I know. OK, questions 00:03:15
by committee members. Yes, Sir. Do you know the timeline? 00:03:20
That we're looking forward to the firm coming back to us. This is where the. 00:03:25
Yeah. What they submitted would be 20 weeks roughly from when we engage with them to where we get to that 30% kind of pause point 00:03:31
where we have their initial recommendation. 00:03:36
That we would then kind of evaluate moving forward, determining a budget project. 00:03:40
So by the end of the year. 00:03:45
Correct. It should be OK. 00:03:46
So, so when we say it's within budget. 00:03:48
Is that? 00:03:51
Is that as a subset. 00:03:53
Of the larger civil rights. 00:03:55
Trail budget or is there a specific? 00:03:59
Something set aside for the. 00:04:01
The Barber shop. 00:04:03
This is for overall project so within this is from Elevate. So there is a civil rights. 00:04:04
Trail line within elevate right overall project. 00:04:11
This contract will fit within that project. It's it's in there. 00:04:15
It's been funded through fiscal year 22 and 23, two different funding amounts, but it is the civil rights line out of which are 00:04:20

This is to repair and upgrade the gate outside of the collections building. 00:04:52
And it is fully funded out of the Fletcher operations budget. 00:04:56
So. 00:04:59
Is this just, Well, is this just a? 00:05:00
Some I run into it, we just upgraded making a better no. It's been out for several years now. So this will increase the security 00:05:03
at the flash point. That's a good thing. Questions. 00:05:07
So moved second, moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye. Item number three is approved. 00:05:15

Unknown Senator, Sanitary sewer force main, and some AT&T conduit as as some additional. 00:06:08
See you after use as a project. Josh knows this project been going on. 00:06:14
They they this, this sea completed in 21 and the D completed in 22 we've been in the process. 00:06:19
Long process of getting all the. 00:06:26
Close that documents together al dot. 00:06:28
Documents as well as reimbursement documents from al dot, so we're. 00:06:31
But finally to that point now, is this the final stage of this project? 00:06:35
OK. 00:06:39
Questions from committee members. 00:06:39
So we're. 00:06:41
We're increasing that allocated to three and 3A. 00:06:43
About 49 grand. 00:06:47
Total. Yes, that's correct. Wow. 00:06:50
For additional services that additional services. 00:06:53
OK. 00:06:59
Another question. Yeah, that's a good idea. 00:07:02

2nd Seconded all in favor, say aye, aye, motion is approved. Josh, before you leave, you and I were talking a little bit. I think 00:08:15

The Jack Warner Parkway MLK Jack Warner Park play Parkway number. 00:08:27
To whatever phase two, absolutely. 00:08:32
The, you know, talking about the road that's torn up in front of the Synovus building. 00:08:35
Where are we on that? It sounds like there's finally some movement on that. We're all, yeah, we've been in a lengthy delay of a 00:08:40
private utilities. We've got some movement on those as well. They're wrapping up completion of that. Hopefully the contractor 00:08:45
moved back in on site within the next week or two. 00:08:49
And we can continue the the roadway construction. 00:08:54
Which will stretch from Greensboro Ave. to 21st. 00:08:58
There'll be some traffic pattern changes during that that those phase, that phase of the project to wrap it up. 00:09:01
However, we're expecting an estimated completion potentially at the end of October please. So we might actually start seeing some 00:09:08
work then again. 00:09:11
Yes, yes, that's correct. That's good. What is the original, am I remembering correct originally this is supposed to be done by 00:09:15
football season beginning, right? That's correct. Originally until we ran into our our private utility delay. So we should be in 00:09:19
good shape. 00:09:24
By the end of October, we have, yeah, we have some changes. Hope the weather cooperates. Yes, Sir. Thank you, Josh. You're 00:09:29

Thank you, Josh. 00:09:35
Item number seven is Approval of work authorization with Atkins North America for design and bid phase regarding the FAA FY23 00:09:37
airfield lighting replacement project. Total is 182. 00:09:43
5/21/18 Jeff welcome. 00:09:50
Good afternoon. This work authorization request is for Atkins North America under their Master Service Agreement that provides 00:09:52
engineer services for the airport. 00:09:57
This project is the next FDA grant expected for the 2023 period. 00:10:01
We received our GO letters with the L dot called it to give us tentative notice to prepare. 00:10:07
So we're in the phase of providing the, the construction documents and the the bid documents to go out for public announcement. 00:10:13
To receive the overall bid. 00:10:20
For this project so. 00:10:23
Is that 90% federal government? 00:10:25
90% federal, 5% state if they are able to participate in this grant, and then 5% local, when will you know if they participate? 00:10:27
We will know because we received the grant award notice in January, we expect them to provide their 5%. 00:10:35
Questions from committee members. 00:10:43
So you have this is. 00:10:47
So this 182 is our 5%. 00:10:53
It is. 00:10:57
A, a part of the overall grant. So we will be funded the 95.5 for this 182, but there'll be a second portion for the construction. 00:10:58
Construction phase. So this is not just R 5%, this is still a 95.5 split for this design. 00:11:07
Before construction starts. 00:11:13
OK. 00:11:15
And I think it's made. 00:11:19
So we're needing 192,000. 00:11:22
We'll be redesigning bid phase services. 00:11:26
And this is. 00:11:30
Within a project that's 90% federal. 00:11:33
5% stake. 00:11:35
Himself recently. 00:11:37
Yes, Sir. We're the 182. 00:11:39
Our 5%, we'll be reimbursed 95% of this amount right here, so of the 182. 00:11:41
We're expecting to be reimbursed. 00:11:48
95% of that, yes, Sir. So that's 100% of the whole project. 00:11:50
That's the whole project. Yes Sir, this is just. 00:11:54
Design phase. 00:11:57
So moved and seconded all in favor. Say aye, aye? 00:11:59
Item number seven is approved. Item number 8 is authorization for the Chief Information Officer to execute contract agreements, 00:12:02
amendments and related documents for budgeted. 00:12:08
And contracted services provided to the City of Tuscaloosa by Apple. Jason Welcome. 00:12:13
Thank you. Good afternoon. 00:12:18
This is so that I can sign a business agreement with Apple and also be able to sign. 00:12:21
For example, if someone is a city employee and their phone is locked and they leave and we don't have a way to unlock it 00:12:31
currently, we have to send it back to them and store that we are who we say we are and they will. 00:12:36
Unlock this and this back so it will let me sign those type of documents. There's no. 00:12:42
Costs associated with either of these. It's. 00:12:47
Just so that I can. 00:12:50
Sign. 00:12:51
OK, so but you still are coming? 00:12:53
To this committee for anything cost for like. 00:12:56
Yes. 00:13:00
Question. 00:13:03
I'm good. 00:13:05
Entertain a Motion to approve. 00:13:05
So moved. 00:13:07
Moved and seconded. Any discussion all in favor say aye. 00:13:08
Item number 8 is approved. Thank you, Jason. 00:13:13
Is there any other business to be brought before our committee today? I I wouldn't. I would like to. Mr. Chairman. Yes Sir. 00:13:15
I want to apologize to people in my district for ceasefire. 00:13:22
There, it's our turn to get trouble, They. 00:13:26
Hit a line Friday and people without water. 00:13:30
And then. But I want to thank the city really came through and everyone by I forget what time. 00:13:36
Hours later had water restored. 00:13:42
It's that's not the first time there's been problems in, just the first. 00:13:45
Two weeks or less that they've been out there, they're in Windsor. 00:13:49
Druid Hills, Arcadia, Box Springs, and. 00:13:53
It's just a mess and they didn't notify it first either. 00:13:56
And so may need to bring them back in here. 00:14:02
At some point, Mr. Chairman, to your committee and scold them. 00:14:05
But. 00:14:10
Ohh for those watching Louis. 00:14:10
Has really responded well to him from our city department. So you if you're watching this L. 00:14:13
Kennedy. 00:14:19
At tuscaloosa.com. 00:14:20
Or of course, contact me, but. 00:14:22
But I know the city. 00:14:25
One thing good I've gotten from all the residents is how well the city has responded. 00:14:26
But. 00:14:30
Friday afternoon, no water. 00:14:31
Or low pressure, you know so. 00:14:33
Present time, or to your point, I know that there were several. 00:14:36
Several registers of District 3 that also. 00:14:40
Have had this problem and when I met with engineering last week. 00:14:43
I It might be a good idea, I might bring you with me, but we were going to talk maybe with Chris England because I'd like to 00:14:48
understand. 00:14:51
When we have these franchise agreements, what are our legal rights? 00:14:55
Because. 00:14:59
Ceasefire. 00:15:00
Has been brought before this committee twice. 00:15:02
I think no one expects. 00:15:07
They're not to be problems. I think my biggest issue is probably your point. What you're saying is it's just how we respond to it 00:15:09
and I still think there are a lot of things that. 00:15:13
I don't like about how people are notified what. 00:15:18
How our response time I I will echo what you said about the city. 00:15:23
Staff there. There were people that didn't have. 00:15:27
Water and there were some other things. They hit a sewer line too there. There was a bunch of problems. Yeah, that happened as 00:15:30
well in a general area and and I think that. 00:15:34
It would be helpful for. 00:15:38
This Council to. 00:15:40
Work together to figure out what we want that policy to be, that we can change because. 00:15:43
They are coming to other neighborhoods. 00:15:47
And other districts. 00:15:49
And the bad part is for ceasefire in my opinion, is. 00:15:51
95% of what they're doing may be great. 00:15:55
But the five or 10% is killing us, and it's. 00:15:59
Causing a lot of problems. 00:16:02
That. 00:16:05
That calls or costing. 00:16:05
The taxpayers money too, because we're having. 00:16:07
Spend a lot of our. 00:16:09
People's time, even off hours kills on the weekends and other stuff dealing with this. So and that's coming we're we're going. 00:16:11
Talk about that very soon. Well, it's very unfair that people start. 00:16:17
Going in yards and and just. 00:16:21
Putting things all in people's yards with no calls, no notifications, no nothing. And then that's just, first of all, that's wrong 00:16:25
and they know better because how many times have they been here? 00:16:30
So and and I apologize to our. 00:16:37
Get a granny. Clamp it over. 00:16:41
Citizenship. 00:16:43
Well, and I think. 00:16:46
And then three that I need to that. 00:16:47
I was told, you know, we were talking to engineering again about this because I probably worn them out with this. 00:16:51
Is. 00:16:55
What somebody is required to do legally, and I could probably ask Jimbo that over there. 00:16:58
And what they're actually doing is two different things, totally, but a PR. 00:17:03
To me, if I was new to market and I wanted people to sign up for my Internet, I think I would be trying to. 00:17:09
Maybe do some things that I'm not required to do by law and. 00:17:14
I'm not saying again that they are. They're not. But. 00:17:17
I'm going to get educated and I think the rest of the Council is too. Well, one of the questions. 00:17:20
Bringing that up, Yeah, well, one of them, and then I'll stop, Was that. 00:17:25
Ohh, we're just subcontractor. We don't know. Yeah, I keep hearing that. Yeah and so, so. 00:17:28
That's just that's that's not an answer, no. 00:17:34
No. 00:17:37
Not when they hit your lines. 00:17:38
No, not with the. Hit your lines and then your. 00:17:39
You have no water Friday night. It's power lines. 00:17:42
They did that. They did that in Arcadia too. 00:17:46
Those kind of mistakes could kill you so anyway. 00:17:51
Any other business? Thank you. Present time. Thank you. We're glad you're back too. It's great to be back. Any other things to be 00:17:54
brought before this committee? Otherwise, I will entertain a motion to adjourn. 00:17:58
Moved and seconded. All in favor? Say aye, aye. Our next public projects committee meeting is next. 00:18:05
Tuesday, July 25th. 00:18:11
We are dismissed. 00:18:13
