Public projects Our committee our would like to call our committee to order. In our first order of businesses, approval of our 00:00:00
minutes from committee members have had a chance to review. I would entertain a motion to approve. 00:00:06
So moved second, moved and seconded. Any discussion all in favor, say aye, aye, minutes are approved. Item number one under old 00:00:12
business. 00:00:16
That was bumper music for Mr. Finer. 00:00:23
Approval of Right of way use permit for 1215 University Blvd. For replacement of a metal soffit Mike we tabled this last week. 00:00:34
Welcome back again. 00:00:44
Thank you Sir. I was tasked last week to to investigate. 00:00:45
Investigate the strong work. 00:00:53
Research. 00:00:58
I was asked to research the issue. 00:00:59
The inability to locate a right away use permit for this. 00:01:03
I engaged legal and I engaged building inspections. 00:01:09
What we what we have uncovered. 00:01:14
Is that it looks like the overhang as a balcony. 00:01:17
Was constructed with a building permit in 2012. 00:01:21
Subsequently in 2020, there was another building permit and that's when. 00:01:28
Balcony overhang became an enclosure. 00:01:33
OCA records go back to about 2017 with right away use permits that we have on file and I think we've been doing it longer than 00:01:38
that. 00:01:42
But. 00:01:46
Tom did some investigating. 00:01:48
Best we can tell is permits started. 00:01:51
In the late 90s or early 2000s that we got an entity to get a get a permit. 00:01:54
For anything. 00:02:02
A non public function or a non public infrastructure in the right. 00:02:04
At that time the you know the Department of Transportation T dot. 00:02:11
Under under Joe Robinson, David Griffin housed a lot of, a lot of the. 00:02:16
The city's infrastructure or? 00:02:21
We can't find any records where back in those days that right away use permits were brought. 00:02:26
Before this body, or even to the City Council for a resolution for approval. 00:02:34
What we think is that permission was given either maybe on the document of construction drawing. 00:02:40
Or maybe just a paper copy? 00:02:47
An approval to do the work, but not not ever brought to to to y'all. 00:02:50
To approve. 00:02:57
So unfortunately. 00:02:59
We do not have a right away use permit for this. 00:03:01
I am going to recommend that we that we do. 00:03:05
The verb begin, our right of way use permit gives us some authority for removal. 00:03:10
Tom, Mike can speak more eloquently about that than I can. 00:03:16
But if we get that in place, then I recommend we do that. OK Oh, California, your recommendation? 00:03:20
Yes, Sir, I agree. And I can let Tom speak to it more if you'd like. This is kind of where he is articulate as he is. I think 00:03:28
we've heard enough. 00:03:33
But but the recommendation from engineering and O. 00:03:40
Is approve what's before us and that will properly establish the required use permit for the right of way. 00:03:44
Yes, Sir, I will. 00:03:52
2nd. 00:04:00
Any other discussion all in favor, say aye aye, opposed. 00:04:03
Motion carries. 00:04:07
Item number two, Approval of Change Order number 2 with Price Civil Services for the 2023 Sanitary Sewer Rehab and Repair Project. 00:04:08
No cost increase. Kimberly, welcome. 00:04:14
Hello, this is similar to when we did a month and a half ago and it's this is an existing project that we do. It's an as needed 00:04:20
contract we do with price level services and this is to add mine items to the project. So it's a no cost because it's an as needed 00:04:27
contract. But as certain items come up that we haven't encountered before we have to go in and add them to the project. So that's 00:04:34
what this is. It's actually adding a few line items into this existing contract. 00:04:41
I don't have any questions. So moved, moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye aye, item number two is approved. 00:04:51
Item number three is approval of a minor public works contract with hoist and crane service group for water and sewer annual crane 00:04:58
inspection. The total $10,160 Kimberly. This is to inspect our cranes or various cranes throughout the water and sewer department. 00:05:05
This is at the various plants, also lift stations and booster pump stations. This will be funded out of Fletcher and Ed Loves 00:05:11
outside services account and the total amount is 10,160 dollars. 00:05:18
And we do this annually. 00:05:25

This work is funded by the Facilities Maintenance Repairs budget. It will make a repair to the floor drain at Fire Station 12 00:05:57
that's broken inside the slab, and the cost of this covers the repair of the flooring as well. 00:06:03
Motion. 00:06:13
Second, all in favor, say aye aye. Item number four is approved. Item number 5 is approval to enter into a minor public works 00:06:16
contract with Radco Electronics for Fire Logistics. 00:06:21
Emergency power inverter installation Totals 13,777, Tim. 00:06:26
So this work is going to replace the existing UPS or emergency power inverter which supplies the safe room. 00:06:32
With, like I said, uninterruptible. 00:06:41
In the event of a power loss, it serves the ventilation in the room and some other emergency functions. 00:06:45
As. 00:06:50
The safe room, yes, there's like a storm shelter room that's that's part of the public safety logistics building place where they 00:06:55
can go and identify weather and I guess they use it for other instant command type scenarios. 00:07:02
And you may have mentioned it, but I missed it. Where's the money coming from? Oh, facility renewal. 00:07:11
Entertain a motion. 00:07:19
All in favor, say aye aye. Item number 5 is approved. Item number six is approval to enter in a minor public works contract with 00:07:22
climate control, heating and cooling for air conditioning unit installation at the Marion Phelps Center. Total is 8975 Tim. 00:07:29
This work is funded by Elevate is for installation only. The unit has already been procured. 00:07:37
We've had it in possession for a few weeks already. 00:07:43
And the work is. Like I said, the work is just for. 00:07:47
The quote of the masters for installation. 00:07:51
Was that unit air conditioning bought by para or by us? 00:07:55
I understand this is coming from elevate, is that correct? 00:07:59
How much is the air conditioning? 00:08:04
Air conditioning unit was 49. 00:08:06
Has that come through the committee? 00:08:12
I have no idea. This was November of 22. 00:08:14
Oh, so it wasn't last year? 00:08:18
Yeah. 00:08:23
And I think there were some procurement issues with. 00:08:25
AC at the time, probably why I'm having memory relapses in a while, so that was definitely a supply chain problem. 00:08:28
It just arrived about a month ago. 00:08:36
Questions Motion second Seconded All in favor Say aye, aye, item number 7. 00:08:40
Item 6 is approved. Item number seven is approval to enter the Minor Public Works contract with renovations plus City of 00:08:47
Tuscaloosa Annex One Parking Deck. 00:08:51
Downspout installation, The total is 33,511, Tim. 00:08:55
So this work is going to take the five gutter down spots that are on the side of the building right here. It's going to core 00:08:59
through the surface, the upper the upper surface lot. Take those down spouts into a central drain, run it in the parking garage 00:09:04
below and out to the storm. 00:09:10
Doing this work is going to limit the wear and tear on the waterproof surface out here if you guys ever notice how? How? 00:09:16
In front of all those downspouts, this work is going. 00:09:25
Not only improve the appearance, but extend the durability of that weatherproofing on the upper level surface. 00:09:29
Questions. And it's funded by facility renewal. 00:09:36
Motion moved second. All in favor, say aye. Item number seven is approved. Item number 8 is approval to enter into a construction 00:09:42
contract with K and a builders for the Colton Park Improvement project. 00:09:48
TOE is $1.373 million. Eric, council how are you doing today? Good. This is to a work. K na builders the Colton Park improvements. 00:09:55
They were the little bitter that came in and we're looking forward to having this part renovated and upgraded. 00:10:06
So what's our time frame on this? 00:10:15
We're looking at 6:00 to 8:00. 00:10:19
It's probably next summer. 00:10:23
Right now it is dependent on weather, but absolutely. 00:10:26
Quest. 00:10:31
So Eric, this this is 1. We've had some swapping of emails back and forth, right it it came. 00:10:33
Close to the original. 00:10:41
Proposed expected price. 00:10:44
And so there was a little bit of an overage and if you start looking at some of the upgrades the city is going to do as far as. 00:10:46
Cameras, lighting, things like that. That's basically where you see the average. 00:10:52
And the in I think in your e-mail which? 00:10:59
A week or so ago there was talk about alternate. 00:11:03
I didn't see, I asked. What's alternate 1 defensive. It's what the fencing around the perimeter. The fencing around the perimeter? 00:11:07
So you want to put new fencing around? We're going to replace what's there, the wood. 00:11:18
Are you replacing the wood with the wood? No, it's going to be a metal decorative fence. 00:11:24
Is the overage coming out of Elevate also? 00:11:29
Is going to come out of the Elevate contingency. 00:11:33
I don't, I don't have any additional questions. 00:11:37
Second, any discussion. 00:11:44
All in favor, say aye aye. Item number 8 is approved, item number 9 is approval. 00:11:47
To enter into a cooperative purchasing contract with game time. 00:11:52
Whatever. Whatever. Struthers recreation for the Colton Park Improvements Project total 249 nine, 2790. Correct? So this is for 00:11:58
the playground that's going to be at Colton Park. This is actually funding that's coming out of ARP. 00:12:04
We had 250,000 and so we came in, I mean just just under $72.10. 00:12:12
Really. 00:12:19
What kind of playground equipment putting in there? 00:12:24
Multi usage slide swings. 00:12:27
I think there's a bridge associated with it as well. It's it's a fairly large one. My kids would love it, or at least my 7 year 00:12:30
old. 00:12:33
Let me mention this question once we put this great playground in there. 00:12:38
We want to make sure that we maintain it's going to be an Elevate Park, so it will be maintained by CFG. 00:12:44
So moved second, moved seconded. Any discussion all in favor, say aye, aye. Item number 9 is approved. Item number 10 is approval 00:12:55
to enter into professional services agreement with TTL called Park Improvements Projects. The total is 13,000. 00:13:03
872, welcome Jared. Good afternoon. All right, this is simply just to piggyback on the Colton Park portion that will come out of 00:13:11
the elevating of the item number 8. This is for the materials inspection, concrete site work and concrete. As the project is under 00:13:18
construction and it comes, it is included. 00:13:25
In. 00:13:33
The budget price we have, so the average includes this cost, so. 00:13:35
I was. I was on board until the last line. 00:13:43
I'm sorry, overage includes this number, the number that we were over the budget that you've seen the emails back and forth, 00:13:46
right. That number includes this. So that is included in the total cost that you've already seen. So this is not. 00:13:53
In this. 00:13:59
It is. It is included in, well, let's see and the million 373. 00:14:01
That's. 00:14:11
To KNA. 00:14:13
Quarter million. 00:14:15
So our original budget is 1.75. If you have these number, the 173249 and 13, you come up with roughly your 46,000. 00:14:17
Roughly over the 1.75, that's that's where that is. 00:14:30
OK. I don't have any other questions. Second moved and seconded all in favor, say aye aye, item number 10. 00:14:36
We. 00:14:43
From suspended rules. 00:14:46
So I guess do I need to make a motion to suspend the rules, Mr. Bobbitt? 00:14:48
I would call for a motion to suspend the rules to hear this item. 00:14:53
Second moved and seconded. All in favor, Say aye. 00:14:59
Rules are suspended. 00:15:04
This is a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute an agreement for maintenance and upkeep requirements concerning a joint use 00:15:05
agreement and easement. 00:15:09
Regarding the Hopkins building lot and adjoining lot between the City of Tuscaloosa and Buffalo Rock Company at the Tuscaloosa 00:15:14
County Industrial Park. 00:15:18
But please enlighten us on what we're doing, I said. We have a. 00:15:26
This does involve The Hoppers buildings, you know that is our our municipal warehouse is at the airport. Industrial park not only 00:15:36
involves, bear with me, the Hopkins building here. 00:15:42
And the zoning lot is currently about to be a. 00:15:48
The blue line you see is what is the question and what the issue is. 00:15:52
A little history lesson when we Mr. Houston Hopkins bought this property idea in 2006. Their agreement between Mr. Hopkins. 00:15:57
IA. 00:16:07
That on this regardless going off that there would be a 30 foot accessing place here. 00:16:08
And also that he would build this road and it would serve not only this property but also the joint property once it's developed. 00:16:14
Currently, the EDA has an agree. 00:16:27
Obviously purchased this property from with Buffalo Rock. 00:16:30
Recently what I've seen is a the condition recently came up and it's delayed their. 00:16:33
That's why we are here. 00:16:41
Buffalo Rock is seeking the easement from. 00:16:45
Based upon the agreement we had in 2006, Mr. Dean even gave me to use. 00:16:48
That. 00:16:53
And that is why we are here. 00:16:54
And. 00:16:56
The urgency is they are ready to. 00:16:57
Get this easement this issue behind. 00:17:00
And they're ready to close. And that's what we're here for today. 00:17:03
And if you want me to read the resolution again, I will. 00:17:09
They're basically asking. 00:17:15
Us to allow them. 00:17:17
To allow the input to use. 00:17:19
Yes, because they want to have access to just memorializing that to allow them specifically to use it. 00:17:23
Questions from committee. 00:17:31
So the urgency is they're ready to close. 00:17:34
Actually. 00:17:38
I think the gentleman here can can answer that question. I believe that Mike come on up. Actually I believe that. 00:17:39
The closing has been delayed because of this. 00:17:48
Yeah, let me, and first let me apologize for my attire. I've been in the woods in Marengo County. 00:17:53
It just got back into town. 00:17:59
This contractor, this agreement with Buffalo Rock came about after they sold their exit their warehouse. 00:18:04
To, I believe whether the food bank, if I remember correctly. 00:18:11
And they had come to us and asked us to try to help them find a piece of property where they could locate a replacement warehouse. 00:18:15
This was in August of last year. 00:18:19
We entered into a contract with them to sell them this piece of property. 00:18:24
I believe in August of last year, August or September. 00:18:30
And. 00:18:34
Run through. We've been trying to get this deal. 00:18:36
Since. 00:18:39
There have been some issues that have come up that are internal to Buffalo Rock that have delayed the closing, but we finally got 00:18:41
to a point where, you know, they've got to have this warehouse. They need to have this warehouse open so they don't have to. 00:18:48
Running their product back and forth from Birmingham down here. 00:18:56
And in fairness today, and I think he got involved, what last week? 00:19:00
Yeah, last week they got around to calling their lawyers and asking them to take a look at it. And of course, when they started 00:19:07
looking at title, they saw. 00:19:11
This Prov. 00:19:15
That authorized the use of the road. 00:19:17
And the reason that they're doing that we're doing this season or this agreement of what we're trying to do. 00:19:20
Is to. 00:19:26
Help. 00:19:27
Them and help the city have a clear definition. 00:19:28
Of the rights and responsibilities that each party would. 00:19:32
For. 00:19:36
The construction main. 00:19:38
All that sort of thing, Curb. 00:19:41
That sort of stuff. 00:19:43
And so I guess Tom first saw an agreement within the last few days. 00:19:45
It was something that it is not terribly difficult to work out because it's already there in place. Mr. Trout can see what he was 00:19:52
supposed to do. 00:19:56
He built that roadway back. 00:20:00
And. 00:20:02
This, like I say, is just to clarify what would happen. There's a possibility. 00:20:04
That Buffalo. Rob may want to extend that. 00:20:10
Well, that shouldn't necessarily be the city's responsibility if they are the ones who are going to use it. But the city should 00:20:13
also if they're going to, if they needed to use it to gain access to the Hopkins building. I know at one point in time. 00:20:20
I believe it was Scott. Maybe that I talked to, I don't know. 00:20:29
Talk to someone about the possibility of adding additional access along the back wall of that building. 00:20:34
May have been a prior owner, I'm not sure, but. 00:20:41
We talked about the possibility of doing this and hopefully what this agreement will do. 00:20:44
Is just clarify that going. 00:20:50
Uh. 00:20:54
If you wanted a little more history, I can give you more history of why we no, no, I want. I want to look, I have no issue at all 00:20:54
with with the content of the substance. I'm just, I'm just trying to determine. 00:21:01
While we're being asked to do it under suspension of the rules, the the main reason is that we've been trying to get this thing 00:21:08
closed now for a year. 00:21:13
We're finally at a point where we can get it closed. This came up at the last minute. Just. 00:21:18
And we were supposed to close, not this. 00:21:24
But the Monday? 00:21:29
And that was when the time when they reviewed the title, they saw that they wanted something that was with more clarity. And I 00:21:31
don't blame. 00:21:34
So I think you mentioned some operating exigencies. 00:21:40
That this will alleviate for them OK. 00:21:44
I will, I will make a motion to approve and I'll please ask or just be mindful when we suspend the rules. 00:21:49
It's it's not a good practice. 00:21:57
I'm familiar. Thank you, Sir. 00:22:01
You got a motion and a second. Any other discussion? 00:22:05
All in favor, Say aye, Aye. 00:22:09
The item under suspended rules is approved. Thank you, Mike. Thank you, Tom. Is there any other business to be brought before this 00:22:12
committee today? 00:22:16
Our next projects committee meeting will be next Tuesday, Halloween at 2:30. So we look forward to that. I wonder if anybody's 00:22:22
dressing up. We'll see. I would entertain Batman. Yeah. I would entertain a motion to adjourn. So, moved and seconded. Any 00:22:29
discussion All in favor, say aye. Aye. We are adjourned. 00:22:36

Public projects Our committee our would like to call our committee to order. In our first order of businesses, approval of our 00:00:00
minutes from committee members have had a chance to review. I would entertain a motion to approve. 00:00:06
So moved second, moved and seconded. Any discussion all in favor, say aye, aye, minutes are approved. Item number one under old 00:00:12
business. 00:00:16
That was bumper music for Mr. Finer. 00:00:23
Approval of Right of way use permit for 1215 University Blvd. For replacement of a metal soffit Mike we tabled this last week. 00:00:34
Welcome back again. 00:00:44
Thank you Sir. I was tasked last week to to investigate. 00:00:45
Investigate the strong work. 00:00:53
Research. 00:00:58
I was asked to research the issue. 00:00:59
The inability to locate a right away use permit for this. 00:01:03
I engaged legal and I engaged building inspections. 00:01:09
What we what we have uncovered. 00:01:14
Is that it looks like the overhang as a balcony. 00:01:17
Was constructed with a building permit in 2012. 00:01:21
Subsequently in 2020, there was another building permit and that's when. 00:01:28
Balcony overhang became an enclosure. 00:01:33
OCA records go back to about 2017 with right away use permits that we have on file and I think we've been doing it longer than 00:01:38
that. 00:01:42
But. 00:01:46
Tom did some investigating. 00:01:48
Best we can tell is permits started. 00:01:51
In the late 90s or early 2000s that we got an entity to get a get a permit. 00:01:54
For anything. 00:02:02
A non public function or a non public infrastructure in the right. 00:02:04
At that time the you know the Department of Transportation T dot. 00:02:11
Under under Joe Robinson, David Griffin housed a lot of, a lot of the. 00:02:16
The city's infrastructure or? 00:02:21
We can't find any records where back in those days that right away use permits were brought. 00:02:26
Before this body, or even to the City Council for a resolution for approval. 00:02:34
What we think is that permission was given either maybe on the document of construction drawing. 00:02:40
Or maybe just a paper copy? 00:02:47
An approval to do the work, but not not ever brought to to to y'all. 00:02:50
To approve. 00:02:57
So unfortunately. 00:02:59
We do not have a right away use permit for this. 00:03:01
I am going to recommend that we that we do. 00:03:05
The verb begin, our right of way use permit gives us some authority for removal. 00:03:10
Tom, Mike can speak more eloquently about that than I can. 00:03:16
But if we get that in place, then I recommend we do that. OK Oh, California, your recommendation? 00:03:20
Yes, Sir, I agree. And I can let Tom speak to it more if you'd like. This is kind of where he is articulate as he is. I think 00:03:28
we've heard enough. 00:03:33
But but the recommendation from engineering and O. 00:03:40
Is approve what's before us and that will properly establish the required use permit for the right of way. 00:03:44
Yes, Sir, I will. 00:03:52
2nd. 00:04:00

No cost increase. Kimberly, welcome. 00:04:14
Hello, this is similar to when we did a month and a half ago and it's this is an existing project that we do. It's an as needed 00:04:20
contract we do with price level services and this is to add mine items to the project. So it's a no cost because it's an as needed 00:04:27
contract. But as certain items come up that we haven't encountered before we have to go in and add them to the project. So that's 00:04:34
what this is. It's actually adding a few line items into this existing contract. 00:04:41
I don't have any questions. So moved, moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye aye, item number two is approved. 00:04:51

In the event of a power loss, it serves the ventilation in the room and some other emergency functions. 00:06:45
As. 00:06:50
The safe room, yes, there's like a storm shelter room that's that's part of the public safety logistics building place where they 00:06:55
can go and identify weather and I guess they use it for other instant command type scenarios. 00:07:02

And the work is. Like I said, the work is just for. 00:07:47
The quote of the masters for installation. 00:07:51
Was that unit air conditioning bought by para or by us? 00:07:55
I understand this is coming from elevate, is that correct? 00:07:59
How much is the air conditioning? 00:08:04
Air conditioning unit was 49. 00:08:06
Has that come through the committee? 00:08:12
I have no idea. This was November of 22. 00:08:14
Oh, so it wasn't last year? 00:08:18
Yeah. 00:08:23
And I think there were some procurement issues with. 00:08:25
AC at the time, probably why I'm having memory relapses in a while, so that was definitely a supply chain problem. 00:08:28
It just arrived about a month ago. 00:08:36
Questions Motion second Seconded All in favor Say aye, aye, item number 7. 00:08:40
Item 6 is approved. Item number seven is approval to enter the Minor Public Works contract with renovations plus City of 00:08:47

So this work is going to take the five gutter down spots that are on the side of the building right here. It's going to core 00:08:59
through the surface, the upper the upper surface lot. Take those down spouts into a central drain, run it in the parking garage 00:09:04
below and out to the storm. 00:09:10
Doing this work is going to limit the wear and tear on the waterproof surface out here if you guys ever notice how? How? 00:09:16
In front of all those downspouts, this work is going. 00:09:25
Not only improve the appearance, but extend the durability of that weatherproofing on the upper level surface. 00:09:29
Questions. And it's funded by facility renewal. 00:09:36
Motion moved second. All in favor, say aye. Item number seven is approved. Item number 8 is approval to enter into a construction 00:09:42
contract with K and a builders for the Colton Park Improvement project. 00:09:48
TOE is $1.373 million. Eric, council how are you doing today? Good. This is to a work. K na builders the Colton Park improvements. 00:09:55
They were the little bitter that came in and we're looking forward to having this part renovated and upgraded. 00:10:06
So what's our time frame on this? 00:10:15
We're looking at 6:00 to 8:00. 00:10:19
It's probably next summer. 00:10:23
Right now it is dependent on weather, but absolutely. 00:10:26
Quest. 00:10:31
So Eric, this this is 1. We've had some swapping of emails back and forth, right it it came. 00:10:33
Close to the original. 00:10:41
Proposed expected price. 00:10:44
And so there was a little bit of an overage and if you start looking at some of the upgrades the city is going to do as far as. 00:10:46
Cameras, lighting, things like that. That's basically where you see the average. 00:10:52
And the in I think in your e-mail which? 00:10:59
A week or so ago there was talk about alternate. 00:11:03
I didn't see, I asked. What's alternate 1 defensive. It's what the fencing around the perimeter. The fencing around the perimeter? 00:11:07
So you want to put new fencing around? We're going to replace what's there, the wood. 00:11:18
Are you replacing the wood with the wood? No, it's going to be a metal decorative fence. 00:11:24
Is the overage coming out of Elevate also? 00:11:29
Is going to come out of the Elevate contingency. 00:11:33
I don't, I don't have any additional questions. 00:11:37
Second, any discussion. 00:11:44
All in favor, say aye aye. Item number 8 is approved, item number 9 is approval. 00:11:47
To enter into a cooperative purchasing contract with game time. 00:11:52
Whatever. Whatever. Struthers recreation for the Colton Park Improvements Project total 249 nine, 2790. Correct? So this is for 00:11:58
the playground that's going to be at Colton Park. This is actually funding that's coming out of ARP. 00:12:04
We had 250,000 and so we came in, I mean just just under $72.10. 00:12:12
Really. 00:12:19
What kind of playground equipment putting in there? 00:12:24
Multi usage slide swings. 00:12:27
I think there's a bridge associated with it as well. It's it's a fairly large one. My kids would love it, or at least my 7 year 00:12:30
old. 00:12:33
Let me mention this question once we put this great playground in there. 00:12:38
We want to make sure that we maintain it's going to be an Elevate Park, so it will be maintained by CFG. 00:12:44
So moved second, moved seconded. Any discussion all in favor, say aye, aye. Item number 9 is approved. Item number 10 is approval 00:12:55
to enter into professional services agreement with TTL called Park Improvements Projects. The total is 13,000. 00:13:03
872, welcome Jared. Good afternoon. All right, this is simply just to piggyback on the Colton Park portion that will come out of 00:13:11
the elevating of the item number 8. This is for the materials inspection, concrete site work and concrete. As the project is under 00:13:18
construction and it comes, it is included. 00:13:25
In. 00:13:33
The budget price we have, so the average includes this cost, so. 00:13:35
I was. I was on board until the last line. 00:13:43
I'm sorry, overage includes this number, the number that we were over the budget that you've seen the emails back and forth, 00:13:46
right. That number includes this. So that is included in the total cost that you've already seen. So this is not. 00:13:53
In this. 00:13:59
It is. It is included in, well, let's see and the million 373. 00:14:01
That's. 00:14:11
To KNA. 00:14:13
Quarter million. 00:14:15
So our original budget is 1.75. If you have these number, the 173249 and 13, you come up with roughly your 46,000. 00:14:17
Roughly over the 1.75, that's that's where that is. 00:14:30
OK. I don't have any other questions. Second moved and seconded all in favor, say aye aye, item number 10. 00:14:36
We. 00:14:43
From suspended rules. 00:14:46
So I guess do I need to make a motion to suspend the rules, Mr. Bobbitt? 00:14:48
I would call for a motion to suspend the rules to hear this item. 00:14:53
Second moved and seconded. All in favor, Say aye. 00:14:59
Rules are suspended. 00:15:04
This is a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute an agreement for maintenance and upkeep requirements concerning a joint use 00:15:05
agreement and easement. 00:15:09
Regarding the Hopkins building lot and adjoining lot between the City of Tuscaloosa and Buffalo Rock Company at the Tuscaloosa 00:15:14
County Industrial Park. 00:15:18
But please enlighten us on what we're doing, I said. We have a. 00:15:26
This does involve The Hoppers buildings, you know that is our our municipal warehouse is at the airport. Industrial park not only 00:15:36
involves, bear with me, the Hopkins building here. 00:15:42
And the zoning lot is currently about to be a. 00:15:48
The blue line you see is what is the question and what the issue is. 00:15:52
A little history lesson when we Mr. Houston Hopkins bought this property idea in 2006. Their agreement between Mr. Hopkins. 00:15:57
IA. 00:16:07
That on this regardless going off that there would be a 30 foot accessing place here. 00:16:08
And also that he would build this road and it would serve not only this property but also the joint property once it's developed. 00:16:14
Currently, the EDA has an agree. 00:16:27
Obviously purchased this property from with Buffalo Rock. 00:16:30
Recently what I've seen is a the condition recently came up and it's delayed their. 00:16:33
That's why we are here. 00:16:41
Buffalo Rock is seeking the easement from. 00:16:45
Based upon the agreement we had in 2006, Mr. Dean even gave me to use. 00:16:48
That. 00:16:53
And that is why we are here. 00:16:54
And. 00:16:56
The urgency is they are ready to. 00:16:57
Get this easement this issue behind. 00:17:00
And they're ready to close. And that's what we're here for today. 00:17:03
And if you want me to read the resolution again, I will. 00:17:09
They're basically asking. 00:17:15
Us to allow them. 00:17:17
To allow the input to use. 00:17:19
Yes, because they want to have access to just memorializing that to allow them specifically to use it. 00:17:23
Questions from committee. 00:17:31
So the urgency is they're ready to close. 00:17:34
Actually. 00:17:38
I think the gentleman here can can answer that question. I believe that Mike come on up. Actually I believe that. 00:17:39
The closing has been delayed because of this. 00:17:48
Yeah, let me, and first let me apologize for my attire. I've been in the woods in Marengo County. 00:17:53
It just got back into town. 00:17:59
This contractor, this agreement with Buffalo Rock came about after they sold their exit their warehouse. 00:18:04
To, I believe whether the food bank, if I remember correctly. 00:18:11
And they had come to us and asked us to try to help them find a piece of property where they could locate a replacement warehouse. 00:18:15
This was in August of last year. 00:18:19
We entered into a contract with them to sell them this piece of property. 00:18:24
I believe in August of last year, August or September. 00:18:30
And. 00:18:34
Run through. We've been trying to get this deal. 00:18:36
Since. 00:18:39
There have been some issues that have come up that are internal to Buffalo Rock that have delayed the closing, but we finally got 00:18:41
to a point where, you know, they've got to have this warehouse. They need to have this warehouse open so they don't have to. 00:18:48
Running their product back and forth from Birmingham down here. 00:18:56
And in fairness today, and I think he got involved, what last week? 00:19:00
Yeah, last week they got around to calling their lawyers and asking them to take a look at it. And of course, when they started 00:19:07
looking at title, they saw. 00:19:11
This Prov. 00:19:15
That authorized the use of the road. 00:19:17
And the reason that they're doing that we're doing this season or this agreement of what we're trying to do. 00:19:20
Is to. 00:19:26
Help. 00:19:27
Them and help the city have a clear definition. 00:19:28
Of the rights and responsibilities that each party would. 00:19:32
For. 00:19:36
The construction main. 00:19:38
All that sort of thing, Curb. 00:19:41
That sort of stuff. 00:19:43
And so I guess Tom first saw an agreement within the last few days. 00:19:45
It was something that it is not terribly difficult to work out because it's already there in place. Mr. Trout can see what he was 00:19:52
supposed to do. 00:19:56
He built that roadway back. 00:20:00
And. 00:20:02
This, like I say, is just to clarify what would happen. There's a possibility. 00:20:04
That Buffalo. Rob may want to extend that. 00:20:10
Well, that shouldn't necessarily be the city's responsibility if they are the ones who are going to use it. But the city should 00:20:13
also if they're going to, if they needed to use it to gain access to the Hopkins building. I know at one point in time. 00:20:20
I believe it was Scott. Maybe that I talked to, I don't know. 00:20:29
Talk to someone about the possibility of adding additional access along the back wall of that building. 00:20:34
May have been a prior owner, I'm not sure, but. 00:20:41
We talked about the possibility of doing this and hopefully what this agreement will do. 00:20:44
Is just clarify that going. 00:20:50
Uh. 00:20:54
If you wanted a little more history, I can give you more history of why we no, no, I want. I want to look, I have no issue at all 00:20:54
with with the content of the substance. I'm just, I'm just trying to determine. 00:21:01
While we're being asked to do it under suspension of the rules, the the main reason is that we've been trying to get this thing 00:21:08
closed now for a year. 00:21:13
We're finally at a point where we can get it closed. This came up at the last minute. Just. 00:21:18
And we were supposed to close, not this. 00:21:24
But the Monday? 00:21:29
And that was when the time when they reviewed the title, they saw that they wanted something that was with more clarity. And I 00:21:31
don't blame. 00:21:34
So I think you mentioned some operating exigencies. 00:21:40
That this will alleviate for them OK. 00:21:44
I will, I will make a motion to approve and I'll please ask or just be mindful when we suspend the rules. 00:21:49
It's it's not a good practice. 00:21:57
I'm familiar. Thank you, Sir. 00:22:01
You got a motion and a second. Any other discussion? 00:22:05
All in favor, Say aye, Aye. 00:22:09
The item under suspended rules is approved. Thank you, Mike. Thank you, Tom. Is there any other business to be brought before this 00:22:12
committee today? 00:22:16
Our next projects committee meeting will be next Tuesday, Halloween at 2:30. So we look forward to that. I wonder if anybody's 00:22:22
dressing up. We'll see. I would entertain Batman. Yeah. I would entertain a motion to adjourn. So, moved and seconded. Any 00:22:29
discussion All in favor, say aye. Aye. We are adjourned. 00:22:36
