                RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS.  County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said crews are cutting brush and office staff is doing bridge inspections for the southern portion of the county.  As requested by Magsamen, she researched the use of flashing white and blue lights on snow plows.  She said a 2005 law allowed the Iowa Department of Transportation to do pilot projects, which showed a marked decrease in accidents.  The DOT now wants permission to use them permanently, and Nicholas thought it was possible that counties may have authority to use them sometime in the future.

 

                Moved by Little, seconded by White that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held October 31, 2017 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.

                AYES:  Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.

                NAYS:  None.                                                     Resolution adopted.        

                At Nine-eleven o’clock (9:11) a.m., a public hearing was held as provided by law in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th Street, Waterloo, Iowa at which time all interested persons could appear to file objections on the proposed Courthouse Chiller Project

Moved by Little, seconded by Laylin to receive and place on file proof of publication of notice of public hearing. Motion carried.

Moved by Little seconded by Schwartz to close the hearing after oral/written comments are received.  Motion carried.

                At nine-eleven (9:12) a.m. the Chair announced the time had arrived in accordance with prior action and as advertised, for the receiving and opening of bids for the proposed

The Board of Supervisors examined proof of publication of notice to bidders and determined that said notice had been published in the Waterloo Courier on October 24, 2017 in accordance with the requirements of the Code of Iowa.   Superintendent of Maintenance Rory Geving said that the amount budgeted for the project is $430,000.

The Chair announced the following sealed bids were all received by three o’clock (3:00) p.m. Monday November 6, 2017, as stated in the Notice to Bidders.  The time of announcement being nine-twelve (9:12) a.m., the following bids were opened and read:

         NAME                                          CITY                      AMOUNT

Plumb Tech Inc.                        Waterloo IA             $613,920

Young Plumbing & Heating  Waterloo IA             $567,100

                Little asked why there were so few vendors.  Geving said that seven vendors attended the pre-bid meeting, and he thinks the others didn’t think they’d be able to compete with the large local firms.  Little asked why the bids were so much more than the estimate.  Geving said a consulting engineer wasn’t hired until the project was budgeted, and the engineer learned from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources that because of issues with the well from which the chiller’s water comes, a heat exchanger is needed to prevent cross contamination, which is a more economical solution than digging another well.  Little said that along with evaluating the bids, Geving should look at his budget and see if there are projects from which he can divert funds to cover the overage.

                Moved by Little, seconded by White that the Board of Supervisors receive and place on file the bids for the proposed Courthouse Chiller Project to allow time to review said bids as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.

                ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD

                On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
