Title

 

Accept Quote from Ritter and Ritter, Inc. in the amount of $52,959.00 for the Town Square Stormwater Rehabilitation, Improvement Project No. 21-50

 

Executive Summary

This project was identified in the 2021 Storm Water Utility Fund as a Capital Budget item.  A consultant was hired to review the condition of the existing trunk storm sewer line that crosses under the city hall parking lot to determine what has been causing the settlements.  The results of the study recommended grouting all of the joints in the trunk storm sewer line.  A plan was put together and sent out to obtain quotes.

Quotations were received electronically at 10:00 AM, September 28, 2021, for Project No. 21-50.  Two quotations were received, one for $52,959.00, one for $132,624.00.  The Engineer’s estimate and the two quotes are as follows:
