ITEMS MOVED FROM CONSENT AGENDA FOR DISCUSSION

12.  FACILITY SERVICES

a.    Dry Creek Community Park, Project #4784 - Ratified Amendment #1 to the agreement with Baker Williams Engineering Inc. for professional design services for Dry Creek Community Park, located in the Dry Creek-West Placer Community Plan area and authorized the Chairman to execute the amendment, increasing the contract by $40,301 for a total contract cost not-to-exceed $201,462.

       MOTION Duran/Montgomery/Unanimous  VOTE 4:0 (Uhler absent)

Supervisor Duran said he gets concerned when he sees a design escalation around 25% of the total estimated budget and wanted to know why these particular items were not in the original contract scope.  Rob Unholz, Facility Services, said some of the issues came up during the course of the design and some were responses to legislation that went into effect January 1, 2010 that was not caught through the negotiation of the original contract.

 

c.    Dry Creek Fire Station Apparatus Bay Addition, Project #4817 - Ratified Amendment #2 to the agreement with Madsen, Flathmann, Dameron & Babcock, Inc., to provide architectural and engineering services for the Dry Creek Fire Station Apparatus Bay Addition, located at 8350 Cook Riolo Road, Roseville and authorized the Chairman to execute the amendment, increasing the contract by $8,500 for a total contract cost not-to-exceed $119,500.

       MOTION Duran/Montgomery/Unanimous  VOTE 4:0 (Uhler absent)

Supervisor Duran said the amendment increases the contract by $8,500 but conversely we have a reduction in value engineering of $150,000.  He asked staff what changes were made to the design to create the value savings.  Rob Unholz explained the original scope involved adding an additional apparatus bay for a watertender.  Value engineering, instead of adding a complete third apparatus bay, added 12’ to the existing apparatus bays which allows them to stack the apparatus.

 

16.  REVENUE SHARING – Supervisor Duran commented that the funds allocated to District 1 have been depleted and he would appreciate having a discussion about the Revenue Share in light of our financial position and what burdens we could have placed upon us from the State.  He requested this be discussed during upcoming budget discussions.

In approving the following appropriations, the Placer County Board of Supervisors makes the finding that each and every approved contribution serves a public purpose by promoting the general welfare of the County and its inhabitants; therefore, the County benefits.

a.    Approved appropriation of $500 in Revenue Sharing monies to the Old Town Preservation Society (OTAPS) to benefit the Gold Country Medical History Museum renovation project, as requested by Supervisor Holmes ($500).

MOTION Holmes/Montgomery VOTE 3:0 (Duran abstained, Uhler absent)

 

b.    Approved appropriation of $200 in Revenue Sharing monies to the Placer Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) to benefit SPCA programs, as requested by Supervisor Weygandt ($200).
