Action Requested

Authorization to award IFB #15-1095DC for Ft. Hamer Park Phase IIA Improvements to the lowest, responsive and responsible bidder, Gator Grading and Paving, LLC, Palmetto, Florida, for a total base bid of $1,051,144.71 (180 calendar days) and authorize the County Administrator, or designee, to execute the Agreement and accept and date the Performance and Payment Bonds.

Manatee County Code of Laws 

Background Discussion

This project generally includes expanding and paving the current boat trailer parking area and adding vehicle and ADA accessible parking, lighting, irrigation, landscaping, drainage, and constructing the required retention and floodplain compensation areas at the Ft. Hamer Park.

Formal competitive sealed bid procedures were followed resulting in a sole response from Gator Grading and Paving who is presently working in the project area under an earlier and separate County contract to construct the Ft. Hamer bridge. It is because of their on-site presence adjacent to this project the other bidders may have felt non-competitive and elected not to invest the time to bid.

The memorandum dated August 18, 2015, from the Project Management Department concurs with the Consultant's, Stantec Consulting Services, Inc., recommendation to award the project to Gator Grading and Paving.
