  1. Change Order #2 – AMI Meter Replacement Project – L. Roberts

Mrs. Roberts advised that this item is the closing-out change order for the AMI Meter Replacement Project. The BGJWSC Board of Commissioners approved a contract with Delta Municipal Supply Company at the July 16, 2020, meeting for the AMI Meter Replacement Project.  She provided some project highlights which included the following: The project began in August 2020; 250 meters were installed during the Pilot Phase which was successfully completed in December 2020; Full installations began in January 2021, and work to place the collectors was completed that month; A full-system audit occurred between May and October 2021 while installation work was paused; A complete remaining inventory order was placed in November 2021 and this action avoided a 30% price increase by contract and purchasing early; Installations resumed in November 2021 and were completed in November 2023; and, Multiple system training sessions were held on-site for both administrative and field staff.  The work has been completed, and a final analysis of costs has occurred.  The result is a deductive change order in the amount of $1,557,102.12.

Commissioner Watson made a motion seconded by Commissioner Cook that the Finance Committee recommend that the full Commission approve Change Order No. 2 as the close-out change order to Delta Municipal Supply Company’s contract in the credit amount of $1,557,102.12. Motion carried 2-0-1.  (Commissioner Stephens was absent from the meeting.)
