Police parking lot bid awarded
By Gazette Staff Writer — Wednesday, October 16th, 2013
A unanimous vote, 4-0, at last week’s Oct. 8th City Council meeting awarded a contract for the Fillmore Police Station and City Parking Lot to Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix Overlay Project to J & H Engineering General Contractors Inc. J & H submitted the lowest bid of $113,700 but the city projects the cost of the paving to be closer to $142,000. The Council had budgeted $190,000 for the Project. Councilmember Manuel Minjares missed the vote upon late arrival.
In the vote, the Council authorized City Manger David Rowlands to sign the contract documents and approve change orders, if any, to a combined maximum of $12,000; and to authorize the budget adjustment as set forth in the fiscal impact section. An asphalt overlay of the 524 Sespe Avenue parking lot will expand the police station lot by approximately 45 feet.
