III. CHANGES TO THE AGENDA
IV. TOWN OF DAVIDSON COVID-19 RESPONSE
Summary: Town staff and the board of commissioners will continue to discuss the Town of Davidson COVID-19 response and how to protect the public health in Davidson.
V. DISCUSSION - Items for discussion are typically when the board will engage on a topic and no vote is planned.
a. Grey Road Sidewalk Project - Consider Approval of Budget Amendment 2021-11
Doug Wright, Project Manager
Summary: The Grey Road sidewalk project starts at Concord Road and ends at Wolfe Street. On February 5, 2021, bids from 4 contractors were publicly opened and recorded. Bids ranged from a high of $787,485 to a low of $487,945. All bids include 20% contingency for unforeseen items encountered during construction. The low bidder is available to start the project in mid-March. The anticipated construction duration is 120 days, with completion on July 15, 2021. If budget amendment 2021-11 is approved, letters will go out to Grey Road property owners, notifying them prior to the start of construction, and providing contact information for the town and contractor.
The board is asked to approve budget amendment 2021-11.
b. Beaty Street Sidewalk Project - Consider Approval of Budget Amendment
Doug Wright, Project Manager
Summary: The approved sidewalk project for FY 2021-2022 is a portion of Beaty Street starting at Oakhill Apartments and ending at the Beaty Street – North Main Street intersection. At the outset of the project, two (2) significant items were unknown:
1. Right-of-way acquisition required
2. Cost and time line for crossing the Norfolk Southern Railroad right-of-way
As of February 4, 2021, the right-of-way requirement has been determined, but the Norfolk Southern Railway impacts have not. Staff recommends proceeding with bidding and construction of the sidewalk on Beaty Street up to the Norfolk Southern right-of-way, while concurrently continuing to seek approval for that crossing. There are several options for completing the railroad crossing portion of the project, depending on when we gain approval, and the associated cost.
If the board of commissioners’ elect to proceed with bidding and construction of the sidewalk on Beaty Street up to the Norfolk Southern right-of-way, the board is asked to approve budget amendment 2021-12 in the amount of $90,000.
c. Public Facilities Update – Consider Approval of Amendment to Construction Manager Contract and Resolution 2021-03
Karen Whichard, Assistant Town Manager
Summary: With targeted demolition beginning at 251 South Street, the town board will need to approve an amendment to the Construction Manager Contract adopted last January as well as a reimbursement resolution such that the 2019 public facility bonds can reimburse the cost of the demolition work. Advancing the targeted demolition ahead of the final guaranteed maximum price allows the project to be completed more quickly.
The board is asked to approve an amendment to Construction Manager Contract A133-2009 with Edifice, Inc., for targeted demolition work in the amount of $555,764 and Reimbursement Resolution 2021-03.
