LANDFILL EXPANSION – CONTRACT AMENDMENT (PROJECT NUMBER 4306)
In light of recent opposition to rezoning two quarters of land the City purchased for the expansion of the landfill staff has decided it would be prudent to take a step back. Some rough estimates were used to justify the proposed expansion, but there were many requests for a more detailed cost analysis of moving to a different location. Instead of just picking locations on a map that may or may not be acceptable to site a landfill, an actual siting analysis should be performed to pick some potential locations. Once a couple sites are located that appease the State siting requirements, a cost analysis can be performed for that particular site. This will in the end provide a more detailed and accurate estimate of costs for a new site versus expansion of the existing site.
Recommend council approve the contract amendment with CPS Engineering in the amount, up to and not to exceed, of $129,326.00 for the landfill siting and cost analysis and authorize the Mayor to sign the agreement.
