APPROVAL

  1. Minutes from the January 19, 2022 Finance Committee Meeting

Commissioner Cook made a motion seconded by Chairman Turnipseed to approve the minutes from the January 19, 2022 Finance Committee Meeting.  Motion carried 3-0-0. 

  1. Budget Adjustment – Project #702 – A. Burroughs

Mr. Burroughs recalled for the committee that Project Numbers 702 and 703 were funded via SPLOST 2016 revenues from Glynn County. The JWSC allocation for SPLOST 2016 was $15,000,000 with $11,700,000 allocated to Project No. 702 and $3,300,000 allocated to Project No. 703.  The final construction and engineering cost for Project No. 703 was $2,289,840.82.  This leaves $1,010,159.18 in unspent SPLOST 2016 funds in that project budget.  Current project expenses and remaining encumbrances for Project No. 702 total $13,327,627.38, or $1,627,627.38 over the original SPLOST budget for this project.  The overages are currently scheduled to be paid from JWSC Capital Improvement Fees. Remaining funds from SPLOST projects may be reallocated following completion of projects to complete remaining SPLOST projects.  Staff wishes to reallocate the remaining $1,010,159.18 from Project No. 703 into the SPLOST project budget for Project No. 702.  This would change the allocated SPLOST amount for this project to $12,710,159.18.  Project costs for Project No. 702 will still exceed the SPLOST allocation even if this budget money is moved, but the amount of Capital Improvement Fees required to cover the exceedances would be lessened.

Commissioner Cook made a motion seconded by Chairman Turnipseed to move that the Finance Committee recommend the full Commission approve the reallocation of remaining SPLOST 2016 funds from Project No. 703 in the amount of $1,010,159.18 to Project No. 702.  Motion carried 3-0-0.

  1. Change Order #2 – PS 4116 Final Balancing – A. Burroughs

Mr. Burroughs presented Change Order #2 request from Southern Civil, LLC contractor for JWSC Capital Project #2027.  He noted that this change order was presented earlier to the Facilities Committee and is for the final adjustments on the PS4116 Rehabilitation & Force Main Upgrade Project.  The final payment and project closeout details were provided for the committee to review.  This change order shall constitute the full and final settlement of this contract for Capital Project #2027.  Additionally noted was that the deduct amount of $15,750.00 is due to the contractor not using bypass pumping which was included in the original contract.

Commissioner Cook made a motion seconded by Chairman Turnipseed to move that the Brunswick-Glynn Joint Water & Sewer Commission Finance Committee forward the above described Change Order #2 to the full Commission for approval.  Motion carried 3-0-0.
