To public projects, today is Tuesday, October the 17th, our first. 00:00:00
Order of business as approval. 00:00:05
Of the committees minutes, when committee members have had a chance to review, I would entertain a motion to accept. 00:00:07
Moved and seconded all in favor, say aye. 00:00:15
Minutes are approved. 00:00:19
New business item number one is approval of a minor public works contract. 00:00:21
With T services and maintenance for cleaning of the fence. 00:00:25
Yeah, for $3800. Kimberly, welcome. Hello. How are you all today? Good, good. This is with T service and maintenance and this will 00:00:30
be funded out of collections. 00:00:34
Outside services account and this is to it's called cleaning but it's basically the beating, spraying all of that around the fence 00:00:39
line that goes around the. 00:00:43
Questions. 00:00:49
So what? What draws the line between? 00:00:52
What our maintenance people do and what we go outside for. 00:00:56
So this one is, I would imagine, with this particular one. 00:01:00
It's a leap of it, the length of the fence doing it and then also the type of chemicals and stuff that they use to spray it like 00:01:03
once a year. 00:01:06
OK. 00:01:10
All right. 00:01:12
I don't have any further questions. 00:01:13
We're trying to motion to approve. 00:01:15
Second, moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye, aye. Item number one is approved, item number two is approval. 00:01:17
Of a balancing change order with St. Bond construction to the airport terminal and ARF apron restruction reconstruction. I'm sorry 00:01:24
project. It's a deductive total. 00:01:29
8950 Four 97 Jeff Welcome. 00:01:35
Good afternoon. We reached completion of the construction of our. 00:01:38
Reconstruction of our terminal ramp. 00:01:43
So we're in the process of closing it all the documents to to close out the grant overall. So the change order, the balancing 00:01:45
change order, the deduction 8950 four $0.97 over. 00:01:51
The total contract value of $5,074,636. 00:01:57
So wanted to show you. 00:02:02
Some of the the differences of the four and after and our pictures. 00:02:04
Hear the ramp before the the project. 00:02:08
And then the expansion and the reconstruction, with almost 50% of that changing over to concrete. 00:02:11
And then we were fortunate to have it available for this year's football season so. 00:02:17
All these types of projects help us. 00:02:22
Looks a lot better with all those expensive jets parked on it that we're glad that we can provide access to the community with 00:02:26
some of the events that happen in towns and the great Project FA was willing to partner with us. 00:02:31
On this multi $1,000,000 project, again 90% federal, 5% local. 00:02:37
So for you or miss Stanford, where does on a deductive? 00:02:41
Change order like this. 00:02:46
For the airport, where does that money go? Does it? 00:02:48
Go back into some airport bucket or back into. 00:02:51
General contingency of where? 00:02:56
It all goes back to the FAA. It's not money we can use elsewhere. It goes back to the FAA. Yes, Sir. 00:02:58
And and the answer in general, the answer to your question depending on project will, the answer might vary. For this one, Jeff is 00:03:03
correct. That amount all goes back to the FAA because of the how they're funding the contract. 00:03:10
Sometimes if there's a deductive change order on a project that we are funding, possibly 50%, we could have a piece of it go back 00:03:16
to our contingency in our airport improvement fund. What do we pay on this one? 00:03:21
What portion? 00:03:27
The 5%. 00:03:28
Just. 00:03:30
Does 5% of 8900. 00:03:32
Go back to us. 00:03:34
Yeah, Yes, Sir. I guess you could, you could look at it. That is it. It's a couple of pennies, but yeah. 00:03:36
All right, motion. 00:03:42
2nd. 00:03:43
There's a motion second. All in favor, say aye aye, item number two is approved. Item number three is authorization to enter into 00:03:45
a three-year software contract. 00:03:49
Placer. 00:03:55
AI total not to exceed 75,000 lives welcome. 00:03:56
Good afternoon, Council, so several of you have. 00:03:59
Gone through demos on this. I know Councilman failed Councilman Tyner, Councilman Wilson have done demos on placer. 00:04:03
Over the past, sometime in the past year. 00:04:09
That we are really excited about. This is a three-year contract for $75,000 total. 00:04:12
To be able to have access to tracking data. 00:04:17
This will help us be more competitive. 00:04:22
As we recruit businesses to our community. 00:04:24
I think. 00:04:27
A common story that I tell is. 00:04:28
When you look at our census data and you see. 00:04:30
30,000 or our demographics? 00:04:33
30,000 students that are unemployed. 00:04:35
If you are looking, if you're a corporate outside entity looking at that, it doesn't look good on paper and so. 00:04:38
To be able to prove. 00:04:44
That are that people are walking into these stores spending money. 00:04:46
Is going to help us sell our community better as we're recruiting. 00:04:49
Corporate entities and so this is. 00:04:52
We've looked at several different options and this one is the best, most the most robust program that we can find. It's cloud 00:04:55
based software. 00:04:58
It's what a lot of people capabilities are using. 00:05:02
And so. 00:05:04
At the request of our commercial Realtors, they want us to be able to provide. 00:05:05
Better marketing packets to be able to go out and recruit. 00:05:10
Did they offer to chip in? 00:05:13
No. 00:05:17
Please will you? 00:05:19
For those persons who may be listening to us today. 00:05:20
Will you kind of talk about? 00:05:23
What the impact will be? 00:05:26
For this project when you talk about. 00:05:28
How this project is? 00:05:31
So needed for our communities. 00:05:33
Certainly so. 00:05:35
One example is. 00:05:38
So this is we've talked with. 00:05:39
Arts and entertainment we've talked with the airport, we've talked with. 00:05:42
Tuscaloosa tourism and sports. We've talked with Urban Development. 00:05:45
And so it's not just going to be economic development that's going to benefit from this. It has multiple uses. 00:05:48
For us there are void analysis that you can do. So you can if you have a parcel. 00:05:52
You can show, you can zoom in on it. 00:05:57
And see what is neat, where the people around here are going, where they're coming from. It's it's cell phone tracking is non 00:06:00
personally identifiable cell phone tracking. So if you have your location services turned on on your phone, so we are seeing 00:06:06
actual habits of people. So it'll say it can see that in this census block where you are going where you are if you go from here 00:06:11
to Publix, from Publix to Chick-fil-A. 00:06:17
Or you're going to Northport to the publics, but you live in District One. We see that there's a void of a grocery store in 00:06:22
District 1, and so it might help us better target a grocery user. 00:06:28
And so we're and it shows you. 00:06:33
We we've learned that the Walmart marketplace in. 00:06:36
Um. 00:06:40
Skyland is the number one in the nation, is in the top 10% in the nation. 00:06:42
On traffic our Chipotle. 00:06:46
Number one in the state, our target. 00:06:49
Number one in the state, This is information that's given that we're able to see. 00:06:52
Through placer. And so it helps us to be. 00:06:56
To better tell our narrative. 00:06:58
Out there. 00:07:00
To corporate. 00:07:01
Entities. 00:07:02
I was. 00:07:04
May I, Mr. Chairman? 00:07:05
Absolutely. I was blown away by. 00:07:06
And I'm I'm a big fan I when we. 00:07:09
We're looking at another grocery. 00:07:12
Which we still are. 00:07:14
It was amazing to me one way they did it. 00:07:16
Seeing who was shopping the Piggly Wiggly. 00:07:20
And I saw New York. 00:07:23
New York City. 00:07:25
You know LA, Arizona, Yeah. 00:07:26
And then when it came to their second. 00:07:29
Choices. It was the one. This. This grocery. 00:07:33
Another grocery store. 00:07:36
That was their the second most shop or or where they shopped the next or whatever. That's right. It was it was really good. It's 00:07:37
really telling. It was very telling, yes. It was just amazing to see. 00:07:43
That information. 00:07:48
It's almost frightening, frankly. I know people can find out about what's going on here, Mr. Chairman. The the reason I asked her 00:07:50
to do that because. 00:07:54
As both of you have said it, it shows some amazing data. 00:07:59
It showed for my district how people that live right where. 00:08:03
And live in state. 00:08:07
How they travel across town. 00:08:10
Just to get their needs met and whatever those needs might be. 00:08:13
Whether it's food or there's clothing, whatever it is and and I was just shocked. 00:08:17
And. 00:08:22
Umm. 00:08:23
Where would this? 00:08:24
Of the 75,000 be coming out, so it's coming from the Tourism Capital Fund and it's within budget. 00:08:26
So is tourism. 00:08:32
Capital projects. Is that? 00:08:35
The same as the TEFL. 00:08:37
No, it's different bid fee fund so. 00:08:39
The Lodging Tax by Code is split between. 00:08:43
UM 2% automatically goes into the River District Fund and then UM. 00:08:48
1% is split between the Tourism Enhancement Fund, which is the bid fees, and the tourism Capital fund, which is what this is 00:08:54
coming out of. But the TEFL actually has two components right and operating in a capital side. 00:09:01
So that's why. So the TE, the tourism enhancement fund is just the bid fees. There is a completely separate component which is 00:09:08
what I'm calling or thinking of is. 00:09:12
TEF Capital Fund is this. 00:09:17
Tourism. 00:09:20
Capital projects fund, Yes, Sir. OK. 00:09:22
Motion. 00:09:25
So this. 00:09:26
Is this month is all 75? 00:09:28
In there and coming out or we're going to draw down. 00:09:31
25 a year over the three-year. 00:09:35
Contract we'll pay up front. 00:09:38
We'll pay 75 out front. 00:09:40
So that clears that out. Yes, Sir. 00:09:43
The entire fund is not 75,000. There's more in that. 00:09:46
OK. 00:09:52
Motion to Approve. 00:09:54
Emotional time. 00:09:56
2nd. 00:09:57
All in favor, say aye aye Item number three is approved. 00:10:00
Item number four is a resolution authorizing a contract with Civic Plus for municipal code support. Mr. Holmes, good afternoon. 00:10:04
This is a contract with Civic Plus. Civic Plus is the company you guys probably think of as Unicode more often if you go on our 00:10:11
website and actually look at the the online version of our code. 00:10:18
That is served and organized by this company, the community code. 00:10:26
Also, if you've been in my office, the clerk's office, and maybe a few other offices around, you'll see the big black binders of 00:10:30
city code. When we do a code update, they make sure it gets updated online. They also do the supplements to keep those books 00:10:35
together. 00:10:40
The supplements in the past have been occasionally a source of. 00:10:45
Extra expense. 00:10:50
We have been using this company since long, long since before I was here. They do just a tremendous number of municipalities 00:10:52
statewide and and nationally. 00:10:57
What is changing with this is we typically pay a website hosting. 00:11:04
Portion of it plus the supplement. So whenever, whenever we pass an ordinance that amends code. 00:11:10
They have to prepare a supplement so they can pull a certain certain pages out and replace it with certain pages rather than 00:11:17
replacing the whole book. 00:11:20
Umm. 00:11:24
We are going to a flat rate contract with them. 00:11:25
This contracts for 15,000 in change is actually about 5000 less. 00:11:30
Than what is budgeted That was in my office's budget with with some. 00:11:35
Additional things coming before us, some big code changes, especially something like framework coming up. I think this has a. 00:11:41
Has the possibility of of saving us quite a bit of money going forward, it certainly will not cost us any more than what we've 00:11:48
been paying over the last several years. 00:11:53
This budget? Yes, Sir, It's. 00:11:59
Second, second, all in favor, say aye, item number four is approved, item number 5 is approval. 00:12:02
Of a right of way use permit for 1215 University Blvd. For replacement. 00:12:09
Of a metal soffit. Mike, good afternoon. 00:12:14
So this is a second story overhang at that address. This is the rounders on the strip. 00:12:18
That overhang was constructed somewhere around 2012. 00:12:25
At that time they did not get a right away use permit. 00:12:31
What has brought this to bear is they want to make some facade changes and. 00:12:36
Platform building permit. We felt like this was an appropriate time for us to clean this up. 00:12:41
Bye. 00:12:47
What you can see in the in the photo there is is that overhang. They they want to change some of that soffit. Look on the building 00:12:52
a soffit that right there. 00:12:57
Yes, the the top part, the top. 00:13:02
The part that sticks out there, they're wanting to replace this. You're not old. 00:13:05
There's a chair, Mike. 00:13:13
So what? 00:13:15
That thinks that now. 00:13:18
And that was built in 2012. 00:13:21
I thought that was. I thought that was relatively new, so. 00:13:24
There used to be a patio up there. 00:13:28
And before it was enclosed I guess. 00:13:31
Would put a roof on it out and all this. 00:13:34
If there was just a patio and a little like a a fence, if you go back and you look at Google images that you can. 00:13:37
That you can distinguish over time. 00:13:43
But again the I think the the key here is that. 00:13:48
There was not a permit issued. 00:13:51
For whatever reason it may have been before, we actually, you know, doing right away, use permits, but we want to. 00:13:54
We want to give them a permit to give them the permission. 00:14:00
To be there like we do something that was. 00:14:04
Going to be constructed. 00:14:07
You said they built an overhead and go ahead. 00:14:12
Permit. 00:14:17
For something. 00:14:18
As though it's going to be. 00:14:19
Constructed. 00:14:21
They they did not get a permit when they built it and they should have. They should have anything that extends into our public 00:14:25
right of way that is a fixture, a a permanent structure. 00:14:31
Of sorts. We issue that land owner. 00:14:37
Of a right of way use permit. 00:14:40
That that sets the obligation of any repairs for something in the public right away. 00:14:44
As the owners responsibility instead of saying hey you know this. 00:14:51
You know this handrail or whatever, that's out in the right in the right away. You need to come fix it. Well, no, you we gave you 00:14:55
a permit to install that. 00:15:00
And and it's yours to repair. 00:15:04
Ohh God. 00:15:07
And we're talking. See my extension here. 00:15:10
We're talking about this or this. Now, the first one. 00:15:13
That yes or soffit is a second story that sticks out over the sidewalk. 00:15:17
That that is correct. I'm going to. 00:15:24
I'm gonna make a motion to table for a week just cause I wanna find out more of what's involved. 00:15:27
Certainly. 00:15:32
2nd. 00:15:33
And a motion to table. 00:15:34
Moved and seconded all in favor. Say aye, aye. 00:15:36
Item number 5 is tabled for one week. 00:15:40
Item number six is approval to award MPO resurfacing project contract SP Bond. 00:15:44
Total for the city portion is 1,100,000. 00:15:50
$270.90 that. 00:15:53
You're not mine. I'm not and. 00:15:57
You know, I'm not. You're not Mr. Gurney. So that's probably good, yeah. 00:15:59
So this is actually for the mayor to sign the concurrence letter with Al dot to approve the bid from St. Bun. 00:16:05
How did this project back on the 29th? 00:16:12
And S T-bone was the low bidder. 00:16:16
29th of September. 00:16:19
Yes. 00:16:21
Well and so SD bun was the low bidder, so. 00:16:23
In order for them to award the contract, we have to send a concurrence letter and pay. 00:16:26
Our 20% portion, which is the 1.1 million. 00:16:31
So they can approve it. 00:16:35
By the 20 or we have to send it to them by the 25th because they have to approve it within 30 days or they have to rebid 00:16:37
basically. 00:16:40
OK, and I think what I understood from the. 00:16:44
Pre council is our portion of that. 00:16:46
Increased by 100 and. 00:16:50
Yeah, it was 100. It was 45 and 95. 00:16:53
Yeah, it was originally 860. 00:16:56
That was it. 00:17:00
Regionally. 00:17:02
Include. 00:17:04
866,792 thousand. 00:17:06
And so that's like a 27% increase over the past two years. 00:17:10
Since 21. 00:17:15
That's how much? 00:17:16
250,000. 00:17:18
I don't. 00:17:22
It's a bug. 00:17:23
I'm just I'm just trying to. 00:17:26
Yeah, yeah. 00:17:28
It was originally about $5,000,000 overall project two years ago, so about a 5%. 00:17:31
Cost increase. 00:17:36
Probably in the. 00:17:39
And what we've seen in other is probably not that. 00:17:40
And we're going to pay for it. 00:17:44
Out of our citywide resurfacing funds. 00:17:46
The difference? The difference out of that? The difference. 00:17:51
Yeah. 00:17:55
Alright, I don't have any other questions. 00:17:57
Second, moved and seconded all in favor, say aye, item number six approved. Is there any other business? 00:17:59
To be brought before this committee today. 00:18:07
If not, I would entertain a motion to adjourn. 00:18:10
Moved and seconded our next. 00:18:14
Projects committee meeting will be next Tuesday, October 24th. All in favour of adjournment? Say aye. 00:18:16
We are adjourned. 00:18:23

Yeah, for $3800. Kimberly, welcome. Hello. How are you all today? Good, good. This is with T service and maintenance and this will 00:00:30
be funded out of collections. 00:00:34
Outside services account and this is to it's called cleaning but it's basically the beating, spraying all of that around the fence 00:00:39

What our maintenance people do and what we go outside for. 00:00:56
So this one is, I would imagine, with this particular one. 00:01:00
It's a leap of it, the length of the fence doing it and then also the type of chemicals and stuff that they use to spray it like 00:01:03
once a year. 00:01:06
OK. 00:01:10
All right. 00:01:12

We're trying to motion to approve. 00:01:15
Second, moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye, aye. Item number one is approved, item number two is approval. 00:01:17
Of a balancing change order with St. Bond construction to the airport terminal and ARF apron restruction reconstruction. I'm sorry 00:01:24
project. It's a deductive total. 00:01:29
8950 Four 97 Jeff Welcome. 00:01:35
Good afternoon. We reached completion of the construction of our. 00:01:38
Reconstruction of our terminal ramp. 00:01:43
So we're in the process of closing it all the documents to to close out the grant overall. So the change order, the balancing 00:01:45
change order, the deduction 8950 four $0.97 over. 00:01:51
The total contract value of $5,074,636. 00:01:57
So wanted to show you. 00:02:02
Some of the the differences of the four and after and our pictures. 00:02:04
Hear the ramp before the the project. 00:02:08
And then the expansion and the reconstruction, with almost 50% of that changing over to concrete. 00:02:11
And then we were fortunate to have it available for this year's football season so. 00:02:17
All these types of projects help us. 00:02:22
Looks a lot better with all those expensive jets parked on it that we're glad that we can provide access to the community with 00:02:26
some of the events that happen in towns and the great Project FA was willing to partner with us. 00:02:31
On this multi $1,000,000 project, again 90% federal, 5% local. 00:02:37
So for you or miss Stanford, where does on a deductive? 00:02:41
Change order like this. 00:02:46
For the airport, where does that money go? Does it? 00:02:48
Go back into some airport bucket or back into. 00:02:51
General contingency of where? 00:02:56
It all goes back to the FAA. It's not money we can use elsewhere. It goes back to the FAA. Yes, Sir. 00:02:58
And and the answer in general, the answer to your question depending on project will, the answer might vary. For this one, Jeff is 00:03:03
correct. That amount all goes back to the FAA because of the how they're funding the contract. 00:03:10
Sometimes if there's a deductive change order on a project that we are funding, possibly 50%, we could have a piece of it go back 00:03:16
to our contingency in our airport improvement fund. What do we pay on this one? 00:03:21
What portion? 00:03:27
The 5%. 00:03:28
Just. 00:03:30
Does 5% of 8900. 00:03:32
Go back to us. 00:03:34
Yeah, Yes, Sir. I guess you could, you could look at it. That is it. It's a couple of pennies, but yeah. 00:03:36
All right, motion. 00:03:42
2nd. 00:03:43
There's a motion second. All in favor, say aye aye, item number two is approved. Item number three is authorization to enter into 00:03:45
a three-year software contract. 00:03:49
Placer. 00:03:55
AI total not to exceed 75,000 lives welcome. 00:03:56
Good afternoon, Council, so several of you have. 00:03:59
Gone through demos on this. I know Councilman failed Councilman Tyner, Councilman Wilson have done demos on placer. 00:04:03
Over the past, sometime in the past year. 00:04:09
That we are really excited about. This is a three-year contract for $75,000 total. 00:04:12
To be able to have access to tracking data. 00:04:17
This will help us be more competitive. 00:04:22
As we recruit businesses to our community. 00:04:24
I think. 00:04:27
A common story that I tell is. 00:04:28
When you look at our census data and you see. 00:04:30
30,000 or our demographics? 00:04:33
30,000 students that are unemployed. 00:04:35
If you are looking, if you're a corporate outside entity looking at that, it doesn't look good on paper and so. 00:04:38
To be able to prove. 00:04:44
That are that people are walking into these stores spending money. 00:04:46
Is going to help us sell our community better as we're recruiting. 00:04:49
Corporate entities and so this is. 00:04:52
We've looked at several different options and this one is the best, most the most robust program that we can find. It's cloud 00:04:55
based software. 00:04:58
It's what a lot of people capabilities are using. 00:05:02
And so. 00:05:04
At the request of our commercial Realtors, they want us to be able to provide. 00:05:05
Better marketing packets to be able to go out and recruit. 00:05:10
Did they offer to chip in? 00:05:13
No. 00:05:17
Please will you? 00:05:19
For those persons who may be listening to us today. 00:05:20
Will you kind of talk about? 00:05:23
What the impact will be? 00:05:26
For this project when you talk about. 00:05:28
How this project is? 00:05:31
So needed for our communities. 00:05:33
Certainly so. 00:05:35
One example is. 00:05:38
So this is we've talked with. 00:05:39
Arts and entertainment we've talked with the airport, we've talked with. 00:05:42
Tuscaloosa tourism and sports. We've talked with Urban Development. 00:05:45
And so it's not just going to be economic development that's going to benefit from this. It has multiple uses. 00:05:48
For us there are void analysis that you can do. So you can if you have a parcel. 00:05:52
You can show, you can zoom in on it. 00:05:57
And see what is neat, where the people around here are going, where they're coming from. It's it's cell phone tracking is non 00:06:00
personally identifiable cell phone tracking. So if you have your location services turned on on your phone, so we are seeing 00:06:06
actual habits of people. So it'll say it can see that in this census block where you are going where you are if you go from here 00:06:11
to Publix, from Publix to Chick-fil-A. 00:06:17
Or you're going to Northport to the publics, but you live in District One. We see that there's a void of a grocery store in 00:06:22
District 1, and so it might help us better target a grocery user. 00:06:28
And so we're and it shows you. 00:06:33
We we've learned that the Walmart marketplace in. 00:06:36
Um. 00:06:40
Skyland is the number one in the nation, is in the top 10% in the nation. 00:06:42
On traffic our Chipotle. 00:06:46
Number one in the state, our target. 00:06:49
Number one in the state, This is information that's given that we're able to see. 00:06:52
Through placer. And so it helps us to be. 00:06:56
To better tell our narrative. 00:06:58
Out there. 00:07:00
To corporate. 00:07:01
Entities. 00:07:02
I was. 00:07:04
May I, Mr. Chairman? 00:07:05
Absolutely. I was blown away by. 00:07:06
And I'm I'm a big fan I when we. 00:07:09
We're looking at another grocery. 00:07:12
Which we still are. 00:07:14
It was amazing to me one way they did it. 00:07:16
Seeing who was shopping the Piggly Wiggly. 00:07:20
And I saw New York. 00:07:23
New York City. 00:07:25
You know LA, Arizona, Yeah. 00:07:26
And then when it came to their second. 00:07:29
Choices. It was the one. This. This grocery. 00:07:33
Another grocery store. 00:07:36
That was their the second most shop or or where they shopped the next or whatever. That's right. It was it was really good. It's 00:07:37
really telling. It was very telling, yes. It was just amazing to see. 00:07:43
That information. 00:07:48
It's almost frightening, frankly. I know people can find out about what's going on here, Mr. Chairman. The the reason I asked her 00:07:50
to do that because. 00:07:54
As both of you have said it, it shows some amazing data. 00:07:59
It showed for my district how people that live right where. 00:08:03
And live in state. 00:08:07
How they travel across town. 00:08:10
Just to get their needs met and whatever those needs might be. 00:08:13
Whether it's food or there's clothing, whatever it is and and I was just shocked. 00:08:17
And. 00:08:22
Umm. 00:08:23
Where would this? 00:08:24
Of the 75,000 be coming out, so it's coming from the Tourism Capital Fund and it's within budget. 00:08:26
So is tourism. 00:08:32
Capital projects. Is that? 00:08:35
The same as the TEFL. 00:08:37
No, it's different bid fee fund so. 00:08:39
The Lodging Tax by Code is split between. 00:08:43
UM 2% automatically goes into the River District Fund and then UM. 00:08:48
1% is split between the Tourism Enhancement Fund, which is the bid fees, and the tourism Capital fund, which is what this is 00:08:54
coming out of. But the TEFL actually has two components right and operating in a capital side. 00:09:01
So that's why. So the TE, the tourism enhancement fund is just the bid fees. There is a completely separate component which is 00:09:08
what I'm calling or thinking of is. 00:09:12
TEF Capital Fund is this. 00:09:17
Tourism. 00:09:20
Capital projects fund, Yes, Sir. OK. 00:09:22
Motion. 00:09:25
So this. 00:09:26
Is this month is all 75? 00:09:28
In there and coming out or we're going to draw down. 00:09:31
25 a year over the three-year. 00:09:35
Contract we'll pay up front. 00:09:38
We'll pay 75 out front. 00:09:40
So that clears that out. Yes, Sir. 00:09:43
The entire fund is not 75,000. There's more in that. 00:09:46
OK. 00:09:52
Motion to Approve. 00:09:54
Emotional time. 00:09:56
2nd. 00:09:57
All in favor, say aye aye Item number three is approved. 00:10:00
Item number four is a resolution authorizing a contract with Civic Plus for municipal code support. Mr. Holmes, good afternoon. 00:10:04
This is a contract with Civic Plus. Civic Plus is the company you guys probably think of as Unicode more often if you go on our 00:10:11
website and actually look at the the online version of our code. 00:10:18
That is served and organized by this company, the community code. 00:10:26
Also, if you've been in my office, the clerk's office, and maybe a few other offices around, you'll see the big black binders of 00:10:30
city code. When we do a code update, they make sure it gets updated online. They also do the supplements to keep those books 00:10:35
together. 00:10:40
The supplements in the past have been occasionally a source of. 00:10:45
Extra expense. 00:10:50
We have been using this company since long, long since before I was here. They do just a tremendous number of municipalities 00:10:52
statewide and and nationally. 00:10:57
What is changing with this is we typically pay a website hosting. 00:11:04
Portion of it plus the supplement. So whenever, whenever we pass an ordinance that amends code. 00:11:10
They have to prepare a supplement so they can pull a certain certain pages out and replace it with certain pages rather than 00:11:17
replacing the whole book. 00:11:20
Umm. 00:11:24
We are going to a flat rate contract with them. 00:11:25
This contracts for 15,000 in change is actually about 5000 less. 00:11:30
Than what is budgeted That was in my office's budget with with some. 00:11:35
Additional things coming before us, some big code changes, especially something like framework coming up. I think this has a. 00:11:41
Has the possibility of of saving us quite a bit of money going forward, it certainly will not cost us any more than what we've 00:11:48
been paying over the last several years. 00:11:53
This budget? Yes, Sir, It's. 00:11:59
Second, second, all in favor, say aye, item number four is approved, item number 5 is approval. 00:12:02
Of a right of way use permit for 1215 University Blvd. For replacement. 00:12:09
Of a metal soffit. Mike, good afternoon. 00:12:14
So this is a second story overhang at that address. This is the rounders on the strip. 00:12:18
That overhang was constructed somewhere around 2012. 00:12:25
At that time they did not get a right away use permit. 00:12:31
What has brought this to bear is they want to make some facade changes and. 00:12:36
Platform building permit. We felt like this was an appropriate time for us to clean this up. 00:12:41
Bye. 00:12:47
What you can see in the in the photo there is is that overhang. They they want to change some of that soffit. Look on the building 00:12:52
a soffit that right there. 00:12:57
Yes, the the top part, the top. 00:13:02
The part that sticks out there, they're wanting to replace this. You're not old. 00:13:05
There's a chair, Mike. 00:13:13
So what? 00:13:15
That thinks that now. 00:13:18
And that was built in 2012. 00:13:21
I thought that was. I thought that was relatively new, so. 00:13:24
There used to be a patio up there. 00:13:28
And before it was enclosed I guess. 00:13:31
Would put a roof on it out and all this. 00:13:34
If there was just a patio and a little like a a fence, if you go back and you look at Google images that you can. 00:13:37
That you can distinguish over time. 00:13:43
But again the I think the the key here is that. 00:13:48
There was not a permit issued. 00:13:51
For whatever reason it may have been before, we actually, you know, doing right away, use permits, but we want to. 00:13:54
We want to give them a permit to give them the permission. 00:14:00
To be there like we do something that was. 00:14:04
Going to be constructed. 00:14:07
You said they built an overhead and go ahead. 00:14:12
Permit. 00:14:17
For something. 00:14:18
As though it's going to be. 00:14:19
Constructed. 00:14:21
They they did not get a permit when they built it and they should have. They should have anything that extends into our public 00:14:25
right of way that is a fixture, a a permanent structure. 00:14:31
Of sorts. We issue that land owner. 00:14:37
Of a right of way use permit. 00:14:40
That that sets the obligation of any repairs for something in the public right away. 00:14:44
As the owners responsibility instead of saying hey you know this. 00:14:51
You know this handrail or whatever, that's out in the right in the right away. You need to come fix it. Well, no, you we gave you 00:14:55
a permit to install that. 00:15:00
And and it's yours to repair. 00:15:04
Ohh God. 00:15:07
And we're talking. See my extension here. 00:15:10
We're talking about this or this. Now, the first one. 00:15:13
That yes or soffit is a second story that sticks out over the sidewalk. 00:15:17
That that is correct. I'm going to. 00:15:24
I'm gonna make a motion to table for a week just cause I wanna find out more of what's involved. 00:15:27
Certainly. 00:15:32
2nd. 00:15:33
And a motion to table. 00:15:34
Moved and seconded all in favor. Say aye, aye. 00:15:36
Item number 5 is tabled for one week. 00:15:40
Item number six is approval to award MPO resurfacing project contract SP Bond. 00:15:44
Total for the city portion is 1,100,000. 00:15:50
$270.90 that. 00:15:53
You're not mine. I'm not and. 00:15:57
You know, I'm not. You're not Mr. Gurney. So that's probably good, yeah. 00:15:59
So this is actually for the mayor to sign the concurrence letter with Al dot to approve the bid from St. Bun. 00:16:05
How did this project back on the 29th? 00:16:12
And S T-bone was the low bidder. 00:16:16
29th of September. 00:16:19
Yes. 00:16:21
Well and so SD bun was the low bidder, so. 00:16:23
In order for them to award the contract, we have to send a concurrence letter and pay. 00:16:26
Our 20% portion, which is the 1.1 million. 00:16:31
So they can approve it. 00:16:35
By the 20 or we have to send it to them by the 25th because they have to approve it within 30 days or they have to rebid 00:16:37
basically. 00:16:40
OK, and I think what I understood from the. 00:16:44
Pre council is our portion of that. 00:16:46
Increased by 100 and. 00:16:50
Yeah, it was 100. It was 45 and 95. 00:16:53
Yeah, it was originally 860. 00:16:56
That was it. 00:17:00
Regionally. 00:17:02
Include. 00:17:04
866,792 thousand. 00:17:06
And so that's like a 27% increase over the past two years. 00:17:10
Since 21. 00:17:15
That's how much? 00:17:16
250,000. 00:17:18
I don't. 00:17:22
It's a bug. 00:17:23
I'm just I'm just trying to. 00:17:26
Yeah, yeah. 00:17:28
It was originally about $5,000,000 overall project two years ago, so about a 5%. 00:17:31
Cost increase. 00:17:36
Probably in the. 00:17:39
And what we've seen in other is probably not that. 00:17:40
And we're going to pay for it. 00:17:44
Out of our citywide resurfacing funds. 00:17:46
The difference? The difference out of that? The difference. 00:17:51
Yeah. 00:17:55
Alright, I don't have any other questions. 00:17:57
Second, moved and seconded all in favor, say aye, item number six approved. Is there any other business? 00:17:59
To be brought before this committee today. 00:18:07
If not, I would entertain a motion to adjourn. 00:18:10
Moved and seconded our next. 00:18:14
Projects committee meeting will be next Tuesday, October 24th. All in favour of adjournment? Say aye. 00:18:16
We are adjourned. 00:18:23
