Contract Amendment #2 will increase the not-to-exceed contract amount from $300,000 to $600,000, which is funded by 100% Local Road and Flood Control Funds.
On November 8, 2016, the County awarded one on-call contract to Dillard Trucking, Inc. for trucking services consisting of trucks and operators to support road and flood control maintenance repair work, for a total allotted amount of $300,000, with a completion time of 1 year from the effective date of November 8, 2016, with the option of two one-year extensions. Amendment No. 1 extending the effective date from November 8, 2016 – November 8, 2018 was approved by the Board of Supervisors on December 19, 2017.
The County chip seal operation will require the use of trucking to transfer rock to the job sites. The existing payment limit for this contract is close to being reached due to prior completed work. In order to accommodate the requirements of the chip seal operation and future routine trucking needs, it is necessary to increase the not-to-exceed contract amount from $300,000 to $600,000 and extend the effective date from November 8, 2016 to November 8, 2019.
The Public Works Department may be unable to complete routine road and flood control maintenance work in a timely manner.
