For asbestos removal services at 2509 11th St. EA. Total of $6700. Selvin welcome. 00:00:22
Thank you, Councillor. Good evening to everyone. 00:00:30
The structure on this property has been condemned. This is a part of our demolition process. 00:00:33
We did find asbestos in this property, so the services under this contract will provide for the removal and proper disposal of 00:00:39
that asbestos material. 00:00:44
This is a fairly large property that has asbestos on the outside of it in the in the shingles. So that's why it's a bit more 00:00:50
expensive than what you see on some of the others. But this is budgeted in our operations and this would also. 00:00:58
A lien will be placed on the property, correct? 00:01:06
So in cases like this, and this is a learning point for me, is the asbestos. 00:01:08

Couple of bids and you know this turned out to be the the best one. So this will get that replaced and fixed. 00:04:06
It's been hit a couple of times, but this one nearly wasn't nearly as bad as the last few. 00:04:13

Is there is there should? 00:04:22
Do something else. 00:04:26
We're looking into it. 00:04:28

we use to schedule out post to really do deep dives in our analytics and it gives US1 hub where we can handle all of our social 00:05:19

So when you I've I've learned what CENI is now. Social media management platform. 00:05:33
You put a post in and then does it distribute it out to the Instagrams and Twitter's and? 00:05:42
City of Tuscaloosa pages. That's exactly what it is. 00:05:49
This allows us to schedule out in advance also. So I can have my team give me a month's worth worth of social media for each 00:05:53
platform. Then they can schedule it out how it needs to be scheduled out so that it's not in the minutes, right. We have a, we 00:05:59

The item in question is to move money from an old project that has been closed out into fund the wanting to drive phase two 00:06:47
development. We have received bids back in for wanting to drive. They are thankfully under the previous bids that we received and 00:06:54
so that we do have funding available to cover those. However, we're requesting the $175,000 be moved as listed in the memo in your 00:07:00
packet to be able to facilitate that bid contract. 00:07:07
Questions 10th Ave. fully closed out. Yes Sir. Fully closed out. 00:07:15
How much did we have left? 00:07:21
In that one project, I believe we had about 800,000. 00:07:23
I don't. 00:07:29
I'm not familiar. 00:07:30
What we're doing 1/8 What are we doing one day to drive phase two? 00:07:33
And and by the way, I'm suspecting the culprit in the familiar. 00:07:45
Is. 00:07:50
Oh, I think that this is a long, long time incoming project, so I don't blame you. In the league, yes. And a matter of fact in, in 00:07:52
OCE it's a 2019 project number. So we've been working on this a long time. It's a redevelopment of the northern half of wanting to 00:07:59
drive the South half that comes off University Blvd. I think was done. 00:08:07
2016 or 2017 So this is a roadway improvements, widening curb and gutter sidewalks on both sides of the road and upgrading our 00:08:14
infrastructure, water and sewer. I don't know where Mr. Tyler is this that roll. 00:08:22
Hillside that was so tornado damaged. 00:08:31
It was University Blvd. North. 00:08:35
It's just a little bit north of the elementary school there, kind of northeast of the elementary school. 00:08:39
Fast SWJ, right? 00:08:45
Thanks. 00:08:47
Questions. 00:08:49
Moved second all in favor, say Aye Aye #6 is approved, Item number 7. 00:08:51
Authorization to retain the Appraisal and Consultant Group as Appraiser and Womble Appraisal Group as review appraiser regarding 00:08:57
the Alberta remnant parcel disposal project year not Mr. 00:09:02
Robert this afternoon. Hopefully I can hopefully I can do him justice. I hate that Mister Tyler's not in there 'cause I know this 00:09:09
is in here. I know this is a project that he's been excited about. There are a number of small remnant parcels from some of the 00:09:15
projects we've done in Alberta post tornado. 00:09:21
That we're trying to dispose. 00:09:27
Since some of those were improved in in purchased. 00:09:30
Using doctor money, we have to do both an appraisal and a review appraisal. We also have to do select those appraisers through a 00:09:35
competitive process. 00:09:41
And so we did RFP S, sent them out to 50 or 60 appraisal groups that we know of as well as put it on our website to meet our 00:09:47
federal requirements. We needed two responses and we got 2 responses. And so the two that were responded are being picked as the 00:09:53
appraiser and the review appraiser. 00:09:59
To appraise these parcels to. 00:10:06
The. 00:10:12
Yourself. What's the review? They. 00:10:14
Review the appraisers. 00:10:17
Yes, Sir. It's what It's something that we only do when federal money is involved because they require us to. 00:10:20
So is. 00:10:35
Doing both that would make sense. 00:10:37
The appraisal consultant group is doing is is the appraiser and the womble appraiser group is the review appraiser. 00:10:42
OK, checks and balances, right? 00:10:51
Is womble on here? 00:10:55
I'm not sure. Well, I think you. 00:10:57
I don't think you have the attachment in your package for this. 00:11:01
And then it's not for appraisal group as? 00:11:06
The verbiage we don't have. 00:11:09
No, Sir, there's no there's no supporting documents. There's not much really to it other than. 00:11:12
840. 00:11:21
All this is is. 00:11:31
These two groups there, there's no attachments to your packet on this one. 00:11:34
I have no further questions. I'm just making sure you're finished. 00:11:47
The the further I go, the Dumber I look. So yes, I'm finished. 00:11:52
You threw me a softball. 00:11:58
Looking you forgot it's Christmas. I don't want to offend anybody today. 00:12:02
Councillor Wilson, do you have any questions? 00:12:06
No, Sir, I would. I would entertain a motion to approval, if that's OK. I'll second it all in favor. Say aye. Aye. 00:12:09
Item number seven is Proof item number 8. 00:12:21
So this is the page I was on, yes? 00:12:24
Mr. Speaker, that didn't make sense. This is a good page to be on, 'cause you are here because it's back. It's been a few weeks. 00:12:28
Item number 8 is authorizing amendment number one to Davis Architects. 00:12:33
Contract for design services on the State of Alabama funded STEM Center. At the Savings Center, the total is 840,946. 00:12:39
75 Jonathan, welcome back. Thank you, Sir. Good to see you. I know you presented this to us. 00:12:47
We talked about another questions, asked about different things. One one of the things I want to just clarify. 00:12:54
That I thought about later. 00:13:01
All of this we're talking about today is the stem. 00:13:03
That change the footprint of the saving. 00:13:07
In the state of Alabama is $25 million that we were allocated. These are fees coming out of that. 00:13:10
Money. That's correct. So we're not spending any city money. 00:13:16
We're spending the state of Alabama's allocation. 00:13:20
To go toward the STEM hub that we're excited about being in the city of Tuscaloosa for the whole region, so. 00:13:23
Just wanted to make that. 00:13:29
Before we start that way, everything I asked him doesn't have to be redirected to him. It was all for you, Counsellor Buzzard. 00:13:31
Merry Christmas, So please ask questions. 00:13:36
I don't have, but you don't have any effort. 00:13:43
This. 00:13:46
Mr. Wilson, you don't have any questions. Jonathan, do you have any other comments to make on this or that? Nothing's changed 00:13:48
since we talked to you? No Sir, nothing's changed since November 21st when we open up discussions. So if there are no further 00:13:52
questions. 00:13:57

Seems like the other day was whenever. 00:15:15
Building a building or you add to a building, we want to make sure there are no foundational issues in the soil, all these other 00:15:19
things and that's the reason that we're doing this based on this addition, correct? That's correct. And and the layout that we're 00:15:25
looking at for the new facility, we want to do a few more borings. 00:15:31
Before we cite the building. And then once we do cite the building, we'll come back and. 00:15:38
Have a final geotechnical expl. 00:15:43

infrastructure, water and sewer. I don't know where Mr. Tyler is this that roll. 00:08:22
Hillside that was so tornado damaged. 00:08:31
It was University Blvd. North. 00:08:35
It's just a little bit north of the elementary school there, kind of northeast of the elementary school. 00:08:39
Fast SWJ, right? 00:08:45
Thanks. 00:08:47
Questions. 00:08:49
Moved second all in favor, say Aye Aye #6 is approved, Item number 7. 00:08:51
Authorization to retain the Appraisal and Consultant Group as Appraiser and Womble Appraisal Group as review appraiser regarding 00:08:57
the Alberta remnant parcel disposal project year not Mr. 00:09:02
Robert this afternoon. Hopefully I can hopefully I can do him justice. I hate that Mister Tyler's not in there 'cause I know this 00:09:09
is in here. I know this is a project that he's been excited about. There are a number of small remnant parcels from some of the 00:09:15
projects we've done in Alberta post tornado. 00:09:21
That we're trying to dispose. 00:09:27
Since some of those were improved in in purchased. 00:09:30
Using doctor money, we have to do both an appraisal and a review appraisal. We also have to do select those appraisers through a 00:09:35
competitive process. 00:09:41
And so we did RFP S, sent them out to 50 or 60 appraisal groups that we know of as well as put it on our website to meet our 00:09:47
federal requirements. We needed two responses and we got 2 responses. And so the two that were responded are being picked as the 00:09:53
appraiser and the review appraiser. 00:09:59
To appraise these parcels to. 00:10:06
The. 00:10:12
Yourself. What's the review? They. 00:10:14
Review the appraisers. 00:10:17
Yes, Sir. It's what It's something that we only do when federal money is involved because they require us to. 00:10:20
So is. 00:10:35
Doing both that would make sense. 00:10:37
The appraisal consultant group is doing is is the appraiser and the womble appraiser group is the review appraiser. 00:10:42
OK, checks and balances, right? 00:10:51
Is womble on here? 00:10:55
I'm not sure. Well, I think you. 00:10:57
I don't think you have the attachment in your package for this. 00:11:01
And then it's not for appraisal group as? 00:11:06
The verbiage we don't have. 00:11:09
No, Sir, there's no there's no supporting documents. There's not much really to it other than. 00:11:12
840. 00:11:21
All this is is. 00:11:31
These two groups there, there's no attachments to your packet on this one. 00:11:34
I have no further questions. I'm just making sure you're finished. 00:11:47
The the further I go, the Dumber I look. So yes, I'm finished. 00:11:52
You threw me a softball. 00:11:58
Looking you forgot it's Christmas. I don't want to offend anybody today. 00:12:02

All of this we're talking about today is the stem. 00:13:03
That change the footprint of the saving. 00:13:07
In the state of Alabama is $25 million that we were allocated. These are fees coming out of that. 00:13:10
Money. That's correct. So we're not spending any city money. 00:13:16
We're spending the state of Alabama's allocation. 00:13:20
To go toward the STEM hub that we're excited about being in the city of Tuscaloosa for the whole region, so. 00:13:23
Just wanted to make that. 00:13:29

Mr. Wilson, you don't have any questions. Jonathan, do you have any other comments to make on this or that? Nothing's changed 00:13:48

Seems like the other day was whenever. 00:15:15
Building a building or you add to a building, we want to make sure there are no foundational issues in the soil, all these other 00:15:19
things and that's the reason that we're doing this based on this addition, correct? That's correct. And and the layout that we're 00:15:25
looking at for the new facility, we want to do a few more borings. 00:15:31

Have a final geotechnical expl. 00:15:43
