COUNCIL DISTRICTS IMPACTED:

 

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The City and Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) have an agreement for the City to purchase a portion of Union Pacific Railroad right of way where Landa Street currently encroaches.  The City entered into a Professional Services Agreement with Civil Engineering Consultants (CEC) on September 9, 2020 to perform necessary research and survey work to identify the parcel the City would need to acquire in the amount of  $13,750. UPRR is requiring additional survey work requiring a contract modification.  Staff are asking to increase the project scope for additional amount of $11,531.  This will bring the project total to $25,281, therefore requiring City Council approval.  CEC is a City qualified vendor on the Professional Services IDIQ.

FISCAL IMPACT:

The NB Chamber of Commerce pledged $24,000 to cover the expenditures of this project.  The remaining $1,281 will be covered by the Professional Services line item in the Economic and Community Development Department budget therefore sufficient funds are available.

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends approval for issuance of a contract modification with Civil Engineering Consultants to continue survey work supporting the Union Pacific Railroad property purchase.
