Background Discussion

This project provides for the replacement of  force mains that were installed in 1976 on Anna Maria Island.  Replacement is required due to structural deterioration over the years which presents a risk in the system operations.

On October 21, 2017 the County issued an Invitation for Bids No. 18-TA002587DC for Force Main 11 Replacement. Four responsive, responsible bids were received for consideration per the attached tabulation from the following firms:

  • Harris-McBurney Company
  • Woodruff & Sons, Inc.
  • Westra Construction Corp.
  • Andrew Sitework, LLC

The budget amendment transfers $400,000 from reserves in the Water/Sewer Capital Improvement fund to the Force Main Replacement - 52nd Street project.

Procurement and the Public Works Department recommend award to the responsive and responsible bidder having the lowest total cost, Harris-McBurney Company.
