7.6 State and Local Bond Report

 

Previous Staff/Board Action, Background Information and/or Statement of Need-continued

  1. The following is new information regarding the local and state bonds:
  2. Facilities Improvement Committee (FIC):

Our FIC met on April 5th to continue to look at the preliminary design of the “Project Two” classrooms.

  1. The District has seven projects from the past that were Occupied Without (Final) Certification by the Division of the State Architect (DSA) and one project that was not closed. The District’s architect and the Superintendent have obtained Final Certification (FC) for two of these projects and are close to obtaining FC on two more.
  2. The City of Arcata:
  3. i) We are continuing to negotiate with the City of Arcata regarding Zoning Use Permits and a Coastal Development Permit. The primary issue is the installation of curbs and sidewalks along the interface of District property and Old Arcata Road.
  4. ii) Some progress has been made on this issue. At a meeting between the Superintendent and the Director of Public Works informally and unofficially agreed to contribute $25,000 in funds and $30,000 in design services. The Superintendent emailed the Director requesting confirmation the content of this meeting on March 22nd and as of this writing has not received a response.

iii) In addition, there is a legal question concerning which entity is responsible for curbs and sidewalks. The Superintendent is researching this topic.

  1. iv) It is possible that we will be required to incur some cost from our bond funds for sidewalks and curbs. However, this is not finalized at this point. The current estimate by our architect for curbs and sidewalks is $120,000. At this point, the cost to our bond is estimated to be roughly $75,000.
  2. The Superintendent is continuing to monitor the budgets for Project One and Project Two. There are items currently in Project Two that will have to be cut. After bids come in for Project One, we will have a better idea what how much needs to be cut from Project One. At that point we will obtain input from our FIC and report to the Board and the public.
  3. We are in the process of selecting a proposal from a firm to manage our Lease Leaseback projects. Additional information on this topic may be found in agenda item 7.7.
  4. Overall, we continue to be on schedule with all of our bond activities.

 

Fiscal Implications:

None.

Subject:

7.7 Selection of Lease Leaseback Contractor for Facilities Project

 

Action Requested:

Approval.

 

Previous Staff/Board Action, Background Information and/or Statement of Need:

We had our contractor walk through Tuesday February 27th. We were disappointed to have only four contractors attend.

We received proposals from three firms. One of the proposals was disqualified for not meeting the mandatory qualifications required by our Request for Proposals Lease Leaseback  (RFP LLB) packet.

Two of the proposals were scored by a subcommittee of the Facilities Improvement Committee selected by the Superintendent. A reference questionnaire was distributed to school districts who the firms had completed projects for before.  Based on those scores and the reference questionnaires, the Superintendent decided to interview both firms.

The firms selected to be interviewed were Dinsmore Construction Company and Pierson Construction (proposals attached below).

Interviews with the two firms were conducted today (April 9th). The results of the interviews and a recommendation for the Board will be shared with the Board and the public at tonight’s meeting.
