Policy Questions for Council Consideration:
Staff has been working to develop the most efficient method to provide a new restroom building in Fields Bridge Park. We compared a standard site built building at a cost of $330,000 to other potential options and determined the installation of a modular or prefabricated building of equivalent construction, design and materials at this park will be the most efficient way to go for the following reasons. 1) Cost – the current cost savings for this particular building is approximately $100,000 or one third the cost, based on our ability to piggyback on an existing publicly bid governmental contract. 2) Impact on the park and users – a traditional site built building of this nature would take approximately six months to build, causing a correlating disruption within the park for that length of time. A prefabricated building can reduce the site disturbance to about 2 weeks. 3) Timing - this particular installation can be completed in time (June 2010) to capture the traditional summer tournament season of youth baseball. 4) An added benefit is this prefabricated building comes with a longer warranty (five years) than a traditional site built building.
Staff has published a Notice of Intent to award this contract. If any comments are received, they will be reviewed, and Staff will prepare findings that it is or is not in the best interests of the City to enter into an interstate cooperative procurement by and through Leon County, Florida, with Public Restroom Company Purchasing Alliance to purchase this pre-fabricated building.
I recommend the City Council acting as the Contract Review Board, pass a motion authorizing the City Manager to enter into a contract with the Public Restroom Company under an interstate cooperative procurement by and through Leon County, Florida.
