Mount <br />1 l� <br />Mount Prospect Public Works Department <br />INTEROFFICE MEMORANDUM <br />TO: VILLAGE MANAGER MICHAEL E. JANONIS <br />FROM: PROJECT ENGINEER <br />DATE: FEBRUARY 27, 2014 <br />SUBJECT: 2014 STREET RESURFACING CONTRACT AWARD - $8,961,280 <br />Background <br />The goal of the Village's Street Resurfacing Program is to maintain an average 20 -year life for <br />all Village streets. This requires that 6.8 miles of Village streets are resurfaced on a yearly basis. <br />In addition to the 6.8 mile criteria, this year's program also includes 12.0 miles of streets that are <br />considered `backlog' because of reduced funding in recent years. The reduced funding was a <br />result of a decline in street improvement funds and MFT funds. This year's program is being <br />funded through the street improvement fund and supplemented by a bond issue. Due to the size <br />of this year's program it was to our advantage to delay the use of the MFT funds until next year <br />so that the time necessary for the required IDOT review, approval, and necessary paperwork <br />associated with the use of MFT funds could be eliminated and the plan and specification <br />preparation could be streamlined to meet our project schedules. <br />Bids Results <br />A notice to bidders was published in a local newspaper. <br />On February 24th, at 1:00 PM. sealed bids for the 2014 Street Resurfacing Program were <br />publicly opened and read aloud. <br />Five general contractors picked up the bid documents and three contractors submitted bids.
