GREEN RIVER — The Green River City Council will consider approval of an additional $228,918 to be paid to Burns & McDonnell Engineering Company, Inc. for additional engineering for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement Facility.
The Green River City Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 1, at Green River City Hall.
The additional payment being considered is due to an amendment to the original Professional Services Agreement with the engineering company. In December 2017, the city entered into the agreement for the design of the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement Facility. Since that time, Burns & McDonnell has performed the required design services for the proposed facility.
However, due to budgetary constraints, the city had to reject bids they recently received for the project.
The Green River Public Works Department has negotiated a scope and fee for continuing professional services with Burns & McDonnell to perform value engineering and prepare the project for rebid.
With this additional $228,918, the total value of the Professional Services Agreement will be $2,887,551.
To construct the facility, the city has received two State Clean Water Revolving Fund (SRF) Loans: one in the amount of $2.4 million for design, and one in the amount of $27.6 million for construction.
