JANONIS <br />FROM: SUPERINTENDENT OF STREETS & BUILDINGS <br />DATE: APRIL 29, 2014 <br />SUBJECT: SEALED BID RESULTS FOR THE 2014 & 2015 SEWER CATCH BASIN <br />AND INLET CLEANING CONTRACT ($38,750) <br />BACKGROUND <br />Annually, a contract is let to clean and inspect one sixth (1/6 1h) of the Village's sewer catch <br />basins and inlets. This annual program helps minimize the potential for sewer flow restrictions <br />caused by clogged sewer structures. This program also provides an opportunity to assess the <br />structural integrity of inlets and catch basins on a scheduled basis. The proposed agreement is <br />for a 2 -year term concluding at the end of 2015, with a possible one year extension based on <br />performance. Prices are to remain firm (no increases) throughout the 2 -year term. If an <br />extension is granted, prices will remain unchanged through the extended term as well. <br />BID RESULTS <br />Sealed bids were opened at 1:00 P.M. on April 28, 2014 for the proposed sewer catch basin and <br />inlet cleaning contract. Nine invitational bids were mailed, and a bid notice was placed in the <br />local paper. <br />Five bids were received, and the results are as follows: <br />Bidder Bid Price <br />United Septic, Inc. $ 38,750.00 <br />H. R. Stewart $ 40,000.00 <br />National Power Rodding Corp. $ 46,250.00 <br />Visu -Sewer of Illinois $ 69,000.00 <br />A -K Underground $ 81,000.00 <br />DISCUSSION <br />This year's target area is from Central Road on the north, Douglas Avenue on the west, Lincoln <br />Avenue on the south and Elmhurst Avenue on the east.

All work has been completed satisfactorily. <br />
