Amendment #8 with TTL for continued administration of the 2018 SRF State Revolving Fund. 00:00:23
Loan funds total 60,000. 00:00:31
Good everyone, Kimberly. 00:00:33
Good afternoon. Yeah, this is just an amendment to the existing TTL contract and it's adding an additional $60,000. This is for 00:00:35
the additional SRF compliance work that they're doing with us, between US and AD and this is for the SRF loan. So we use for water 00:00:40
and sewer work. 00:00:46
So this is to extend that contract and then an additional amount to it, OK. 00:00:51
And it's there will be a question planning Finance Committee item with this. 00:00:57
I'm confused. Is it extending the term of the contract? Well, it's carrying expanding the amount. 00:01:00
We're paying for both. 00:01:07
So we'll go through December of this year with this the end of the year. 00:01:09
And then it's an additional $60,000. And when was it supposed to expire? 00:01:12
It was. It's an. It's an as needed services contract. 00:01:17
We're extending it. It has some kind of exploration, but I don't know the 30th this year we're extending that. 00:01:22
October, November and December. Yes for an extra 60,000. 00:01:30
And then we're increasing the scope. 00:01:35
Or that's purely the extension, That's the extension of it. But we asked for some additional work on this related to some 00:01:38
documents that we need on on the water sewer side. So there's some other additional environmental documents and things that we've 00:01:43
asked for, they're related to the SRF loan. 00:01:48
And so that's what this is and then also we're trying to, we're working towards getting the SRF administration in house and so 00:01:55
there's some training aspect or as needed aspect to this contract that will that will help us money coming from it's out of the 00:02:00
the 10 year, 10 year plan that's part of the. 00:02:05
That's what I've done. 00:02:10
OK. 00:02:11
So we're trying to bring that back in house. 00:02:13
Part of this additional three months. 00:02:16
Is them tutoring us? 00:02:18
In the administration, well it's yeah as needed services to help us, to help guide us because we're doing, we're taking on the 00:02:21
going to start taking on the role of working with Adm related to these. 00:02:26
Documents. 00:02:31
So move. 00:02:35
Second, second all in favor, say aye aye, item number one is approved. 00:02:36
Item number 22 Item number two is Approval. 00:02:41
Change order number one to the construction contract with Lavender Inc for the Aflac. 00:02:46
Storm sewer repair project that's on Rice Mine, Rd. Total is 198,804. Ninety two and a 30 day time extension. Good afternoon Mike. 00:02:50
Good afternoon, so. 00:02:59
In the course of uncovering items at the project site. 00:03:02
This is the This is basically where the storm system began. 00:03:07
This is a structure that was built in about the early 90s. 00:03:11
Part of the component of the major component of this. 00:03:19
Change order. 00:03:22
Is to reinforce the structural integrity of this box. 00:03:23
It's about 22 feet deep. 00:03:28
And. 00:03:30
We feel like this is a very important component that we need to address. 00:03:32
A subsequent failure of this box, if we don't address it, would be a catastrophic. 00:03:38
Problem. 00:03:42
And it would be probably part of an emergency contract if that were to happen. 00:03:44
So along with that change order, there's some other structures that are needing to be modified based on some. 00:03:48
In field conditions and there's a request for 30 day extension to perform this work. 00:03:55
What are we up to on this one so far, Mike? 00:04:01
This will bring it to two million 164. 00:04:04
What's our revised timeline? I don't get stopped. 00:04:12
Well, if we. 00:04:16
We could walk away, but we'd have a problem if if we did a stop work order. I think that there would be some charges for removing 00:04:18
whatnot. 00:04:22
I think this is gonna push us into. 00:04:27
October. 00:04:32
Working conditions have been been favorable and. 00:04:33
I'm hoping that Outlook stays the same. 00:04:38
They've got about 50% of the major pipe work in the ground, so it. 00:04:41
Probably go pretty quick after this. 00:04:46
Any questions from committee members? 00:04:49
Very nice to get this repaired and we move on. 00:04:52
Motion second. 00:04:55
Thank you. Seconded all in favor, say aye, aye opposed, it's approved. 00:04:56
Item number three is approval to enter into software licensing support agreement with GE Software for management services 00:05:01
associated. 00:05:05
With our feeling. 00:05:09
Stations total is 42,887 so and welcome. 00:05:10
Thank you, Mr. Chairman. 00:05:15
This is a authorization to enter into an agreement with GE software license. 00:05:17
This will provide a software licensing agreement and software support for the software platform that we use to manage our three 00:05:23
fueling stations. We have two fueling stations at what you know as the T dot campus. 00:05:30
And a third fueling station at TPD. 00:05:37
This software is what we use to account for all of our fuel usage. 00:05:40
So it identifies few usage by the individual, the car or piece of equipment used. 00:05:46
And it also tracks. 00:05:53
How much or in few people are using at any given time? 00:05:54
It also generates reports that goes to A&F for all of our billing and account information. 00:05:58
This is paid for out of operations. I was waiting for that question. 00:06:05
You're not gonna ask me? I'll say it anyway. It's covered in operation. I love Mike. I'll let Mike get the oversight. 00:06:10
Questions. 00:06:19
So is this just? 00:06:21
They have some code so that we're tracking. 00:06:23
They're still getting out of the truck, sticking a nozzle. 00:06:26
Yeah, but in order to get get few out of our fuel tanks, you have to have to key fob. 00:06:30
And you have to enter a vehicle ID number, so that key fob tells who's getting the gas. The vehicle ID number or the equipment ID 00:06:35
number tells them where they're putting it. 00:06:39
I'm good. Need some some second seconded. All in favor, say aye. 00:06:46
An item is approved. Item number three is approved. Item number four, approval to enter into professional services contract with 00:06:52
Keen Independent Research LLC for strategic planning of the Gateway Center. Total not to exceed 75,000. 00:06:59
OK. And Dakota, welcome Dakota. Yes, thank you. Good afternoon. 00:07:06
This is a contract with Keen independent research to do strategic visioning for the Gateway Center. It is funded through Elevate 00:07:10
and it is within budget. 00:07:14
We'll be conducting market analysis, business planning, facility operations and just overall visitor experience for the Gateway 00:07:19
Center to make sure that we're meeting the needs. 00:07:23
Of the community, and it's something that can be facilitated and functioned for years to come. 00:07:29
We recently. 00:07:35
You don't approve. 00:07:39
Some similar type of. 00:07:41
Professional service contract. 00:07:43
For like. 00:07:45
For that, we came to you previously to ask permission to begin. 00:07:47
The process OK and this is what it's like to Dakota when they do this they. 00:07:51
I know what we need to reinvent kind of what's going on there and. 00:07:57
Do they? I mean, they spend a lot of time probably talking with a lot of people. They interview a lot of people and they probably 00:08:02
bring what best practices? 00:08:05
To something that's similar maybe somewhere they don't. I mean I know Kim will be in the middle of this, but is that kind of? 00:08:08
How long does that process? 00:08:13
Take talk a little bit about kind of what what they will do. So that's part of their community engagement that they're gonna do. 00:08:16
They're gonna meet with various focus groups about the community to make sure that whatever does ultimately go out there is 00:08:20
something that, number one, the community wants and #2, the data supports that. It's something that will be successful out there 00:08:24
long term. 00:08:29
The actual timeline for this, we're looking at it potentially being complete in the summer of 2023. 00:08:34
So and by the end of this summer. 00:08:40
In that event, 24, not 20/30/24. 00:08:43
Yes, sorry, Timber 24, yeah. 00:08:46
OK. 00:08:49
So is it? 00:08:50
Would it be accurate? 00:08:52
To say re envisioning. 00:08:54
I mean because we're obviously. 00:08:59
Marcus study feasibility now business plan development cost budgeting and this experience conceptualization those are pre opening. 00:09:02
Services so and and we're not going to be able to compete with the savings center and we really need to reinvent what we're doing 00:09:10
and what we're providing to the community. 00:09:15
And we're really trying to provide them. They're going to tell us the trends around other cities, but we want to be that safe 00:09:19
place to attract, you know, our youth in our community where they come and they get educational and recreational opportunities. 00:09:25
But in that setting that it's the wow, you know, setting, that's what the gateway was intended to be, where everybody wants to be 00:09:32
a part of it. And we're not there right now. So this is going to help us get where we want to be. 00:09:38
I'm. 00:09:45
Real appreciative of the mayor we talked way back about. 00:09:46
I had my concerns about the saving center with some of the things because I didn't want all the money and. 00:09:51
Dreams we have the gateway just to. 00:09:57
Die. 00:09:59
And so which of course. 00:10:00
There agree. 00:10:03
And. 00:10:04
I'm really excited about that. This is the same group, by the way. That it. 00:10:06
Being used at the savings center. 00:10:11
Because my #1 concerns for the youth. 00:10:13
That aids that we all know. 00:10:17
The. 00:10:19
Need some guidance. 00:10:21
And. 00:10:22
One of the first things we're looking at. 00:10:23
Gaining. 00:10:25
Gaming. 00:10:27
Gaming is huge. Gaming is. 00:10:29
I can just see. 00:10:32
How? 00:10:33
Must have attract people. You know gaming. You can get college scholarships. 00:10:34
Yeah. 00:10:38
But looking at that and possibly. 00:10:39
Recording Studio. 00:10:41
See things. 00:10:44
It had become very. 00:10:45
It's used a lot, but it becomes just a meeting place. 00:10:47
There's people to. 00:10:51
You know not not the purpose it was. 00:10:56
So it's used a lot for meetings. 00:11:00
You got the maturity Center for that, right? 00:11:03
Something I want the kids to be able to say. 00:11:05
What are you doing? 00:11:08
The gate. 00:11:11
Right. 00:11:11
If you do get gaming, Mr. Tyler, when you promised to get NCAA 2024 on the PlayStation, yeah, you got My wife won't let me get a 00:11:14
PlayStation. 00:11:20
I'll have a special. We'll have a special spot just for you. 00:11:28
But I want to thank Dakota for all his hard work in case. 00:11:33
Because. 00:11:37
Equals my enthusiasm. 00:11:39
With the potential is amazing. 00:11:40
And this is for kids. 00:11:42
This is for kids, just like the saving center. 00:11:44
This is for kids. 00:11:47
Across the entire city, right? 00:11:48
To have opportunity to go to a place like this. 00:11:50
So does that mean you wanna make a motion? How would I wish I could but you can't make a motion. I need to check council rules, 00:11:54
but I don't think. 00:11:58

indoor tennis center expansion. 00:12:44
Cost budgeting came back, rolled that out. 00:12:49
So these TD Two was to make sure that we weren't overpaying for services that we ultimately did not need. 00:12:52
Questions. 00:12:59
It's raining money out there. 00:13:01

Echo what you just said. 00:14:46
This money is being paid by the state of Alabama, or if we pay for it, we're reimbursed. 00:14:47

The vehicles within that first. 00:15:59
This bid. 00:16:02
$1.2 million lower than the anticipated budget, so that. 00:16:02

Or that's purely the extension, That's the extension of it. But we asked for some additional work on this related to some 00:01:38
documents that we need on on the water sewer side. So there's some other additional environmental documents and things that we've 00:01:43
asked for, they're related to the SRF loan. 00:01:48
And so that's what this is and then also we're trying to, we're working towards getting the SRF administration in house and so 00:01:55
there's some training aspect or as needed aspect to this contract that will that will help us money coming from it's out of the 00:02:00
the 10 year, 10 year plan that's part of the. 00:02:05
That's what I've done. 00:02:10
OK. 00:02:11
So we're trying to bring that back in house. 00:02:13
Part of this additional three months. 00:02:16
Is them tutoring us? 00:02:18
In the administration, well it's yeah as needed services to help us, to help guide us because we're doing, we're taking on the 00:02:21
going to start taking on the role of working with Adm related to these. 00:02:26
Documents. 00:02:31
So move. 00:02:35
Second, second all in favor, say aye aye, item number one is approved. 00:02:36
Item number 22 Item number two is Approval. 00:02:41
Change order number one to the construction contract with Lavender Inc for the Aflac. 00:02:46
Storm sewer repair project that's on Rice Mine, Rd. Total is 198,804. Ninety two and a 30 day time extension. Good afternoon Mike. 00:02:50
Good afternoon, so. 00:02:59
In the course of uncovering items at the project site. 00:03:02
This is the This is basically where the storm system began. 00:03:07
This is a structure that was built in about the early 90s. 00:03:11
Part of the component of the major component of this. 00:03:19
Change order. 00:03:22
Is to reinforce the structural integrity of this box. 00:03:23
It's about 22 feet deep. 00:03:28
And. 00:03:30
We feel like this is a very important component that we need to address. 00:03:32
A subsequent failure of this box, if we don't address it, would be a catastrophic. 00:03:38
Problem. 00:03:42
And it would be probably part of an emergency contract if that were to happen. 00:03:44
So along with that change order, there's some other structures that are needing to be modified based on some. 00:03:48
In field conditions and there's a request for 30 day extension to perform this work. 00:03:55
What are we up to on this one so far, Mike? 00:04:01
This will bring it to two million 164. 00:04:04
What's our revised timeline? I don't get stopped. 00:04:12
Well, if we. 00:04:16
We could walk away, but we'd have a problem if if we did a stop work order. I think that there would be some charges for removing 00:04:18
whatnot. 00:04:22
I think this is gonna push us into. 00:04:27
October. 00:04:32
Working conditions have been been favorable and. 00:04:33
I'm hoping that Outlook stays the same. 00:04:38
They've got about 50% of the major pipe work in the ground, so it. 00:04:41
Probably go pretty quick after this. 00:04:46
Any questions from committee members? 00:04:49
Very nice to get this repaired and we move on. 00:04:52
Motion second. 00:04:55

Item number three is approval to enter into software licensing support agreement with GE Software for management services 00:05:01

With our feeling. 00:05:09
Stations total is 42,887 so and welcome. 00:05:10
Thank you, Mr. Chairman. 00:05:15
This is a authorization to enter into an agreement with GE software license. 00:05:17
This will provide a software licensing agreement and software support for the software platform that we use to manage our three 00:05:23
fueling stations. We have two fueling stations at what you know as the T dot campus. 00:05:30
And a third fueling station at TPD. 00:05:37
This software is what we use to account for all of our fuel usage. 00:05:40
So it identifies few usage by the individual, the car or piece of equipment used. 00:05:46
And it also tracks. 00:05:53
How much or in few people are using at any given time? 00:05:54
It also generates reports that goes to A&F for all of our billing and account information. 00:05:58
This is paid for out of operations. I was waiting for that question. 00:06:05
You're not gonna ask me? I'll say it anyway. It's covered in operation. I love Mike. I'll let Mike get the oversight. 00:06:10
Questions. 00:06:19
So is this just? 00:06:21
They have some code so that we're tracking. 00:06:23
They're still getting out of the truck, sticking a nozzle. 00:06:26
Yeah, but in order to get get few out of our fuel tanks, you have to have to key fob. 00:06:30
And you have to enter a vehicle ID number, so that key fob tells who's getting the gas. The vehicle ID number or the equipment ID 00:06:35
number tells them where they're putting it. 00:06:39
I'm good. Need some some second seconded. All in favor, say aye. 00:06:46

Keen Independent Research LLC for strategic planning of the Gateway Center. Total not to exceed 75,000. 00:06:59
OK. And Dakota, welcome Dakota. Yes, thank you. Good afternoon. 00:07:06
This is a contract with Keen independent research to do strategic visioning for the Gateway Center. It is funded through Elevate 00:07:10
and it is within budget. 00:07:14
We'll be conducting market analysis, business planning, facility operations and just overall visitor experience for the Gateway 00:07:19
Center to make sure that we're meeting the needs. 00:07:23
Of the community, and it's something that can be facilitated and functioned for years to come. 00:07:29
We recently. 00:07:35
You don't approve. 00:07:39
Some similar type of. 00:07:41
Professional service contract. 00:07:43
For like. 00:07:45
For that, we came to you previously to ask permission to begin. 00:07:47
The process OK and this is what it's like to Dakota when they do this they. 00:07:51
I know what we need to reinvent kind of what's going on there and. 00:07:57
Do they? I mean, they spend a lot of time probably talking with a lot of people. They interview a lot of people and they probably 00:08:02
bring what best practices? 00:08:05
To something that's similar maybe somewhere they don't. I mean I know Kim will be in the middle of this, but is that kind of? 00:08:08
How long does that process? 00:08:13
Take talk a little bit about kind of what what they will do. So that's part of their community engagement that they're gonna do. 00:08:16
They're gonna meet with various focus groups about the community to make sure that whatever does ultimately go out there is 00:08:20
something that, number one, the community wants and #2, the data supports that. It's something that will be successful out there 00:08:24
long term. 00:08:29
The actual timeline for this, we're looking at it potentially being complete in the summer of 2023. 00:08:34
So and by the end of this summer. 00:08:40
In that event, 24, not 20/30/24. 00:08:43
Yes, sorry, Timber 24, yeah. 00:08:46
OK. 00:08:49
So is it? 00:08:50
Would it be accurate? 00:08:52
To say re envisioning. 00:08:54
I mean because we're obviously. 00:08:59
Marcus study feasibility now business plan development cost budgeting and this experience conceptualization those are pre opening. 00:09:02
Services so and and we're not going to be able to compete with the savings center and we really need to reinvent what we're doing 00:09:10
and what we're providing to the community. 00:09:15
And we're really trying to provide them. They're going to tell us the trends around other cities, but we want to be that safe 00:09:19
place to attract, you know, our youth in our community where they come and they get educational and recreational opportunities. 00:09:25
But in that setting that it's the wow, you know, setting, that's what the gateway was intended to be, where everybody wants to be 00:09:32
a part of it. And we're not there right now. So this is going to help us get where we want to be. 00:09:38
I'm. 00:09:45
Real appreciative of the mayor we talked way back about. 00:09:46
I had my concerns about the saving center with some of the things because I didn't want all the money and. 00:09:51
Dreams we have the gateway just to. 00:09:57
Die. 00:09:59
And so which of course. 00:10:00
There agree. 00:10:03
And. 00:10:04
I'm really excited about that. This is the same group, by the way. That it. 00:10:06
Being used at the savings center. 00:10:11
Because my #1 concerns for the youth. 00:10:13
That aids that we all know. 00:10:17
The. 00:10:19
Need some guidance. 00:10:21
And. 00:10:22
One of the first things we're looking at. 00:10:23
Gaining. 00:10:25
Gaming. 00:10:27
Gaming is huge. Gaming is. 00:10:29
I can just see. 00:10:32
How? 00:10:33
Must have attract people. You know gaming. You can get college scholarships. 00:10:34
Yeah. 00:10:38
But looking at that and possibly. 00:10:39
Recording Studio. 00:10:41
See things. 00:10:44
It had become very. 00:10:45
It's used a lot, but it becomes just a meeting place. 00:10:47
There's people to. 00:10:51
You know not not the purpose it was. 00:10:56
So it's used a lot for meetings. 00:11:00
You got the maturity Center for that, right? 00:11:03
Something I want the kids to be able to say. 00:11:05
What are you doing? 00:11:08
The gate. 00:11:11
Right. 00:11:11
If you do get gaming, Mr. Tyler, when you promised to get NCAA 2024 on the PlayStation, yeah, you got My wife won't let me get a 00:11:14
PlayStation. 00:11:20
I'll have a special. We'll have a special spot just for you. 00:11:28
But I want to thank Dakota for all his hard work in case. 00:11:33
Because. 00:11:37
Equals my enthusiasm. 00:11:39
With the potential is amazing. 00:11:40
And this is for kids. 00:11:42
This is for kids, just like the saving center. 00:11:44
This is for kids. 00:11:47
Across the entire city, right? 00:11:48
To have opportunity to go to a place like this. 00:11:50
So does that mean you wanna make a motion? How would I wish I could but you can't make a motion. I need to check council rules, 00:11:54
but I don't think. 00:11:58

indoor tennis center expansion. 00:12:44
Cost budgeting came back, rolled that out. 00:12:49
So these TD Two was to make sure that we weren't overpaying for services that we ultimately did not need. 00:12:52
Questions. 00:12:59
It's raining money out there. 00:13:01

Echo what you just said. 00:14:46
This money is being paid by the state of Alabama, or if we pay for it, we're reimbursed. 00:14:47
So this is not the city's not out. Any money on this? 00:14:53
For this wonderful new facility that Harrison constructs. 00:14:56

The vehicles within that first. 00:15:59
This bid. 00:16:02
$1.2 million lower than the anticipated budget, so that. 00:16:02
Hopefully. Maybe. That's a harbinger of things to come. 00:16:07
Also as part of that, the additional men. 00:16:11
That will be needed or additional firefighters that will be needed. 00:16:14
Mercedes is covering the cost of those. 00:16:17
