Discussion

The sales surtax renewal plan includes funding for electrical renewal at Creel Elementary School. This project will also include LED lighting in corridors and other shared spaces in Building 1. There are sales surtax renewal funds remaining for classroom LED lighting that will be used on a subsequent phase of the project. 

Wharton Smith, Inc. has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) in an amount not to exceed $504,929 under their continuing contract for construction management services for the project based on a design submitted by DDC Engineering, Inc. under their continuing contract for mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering services. Administration and permitting costs are estimated at $10,000. The Independent Citizens Oversight Committee recommended additional funding of $2,000,000 from the 2020 sales surtax revenue for electrical renewal projects at its December 8, 2021 meeting. The electrical renewal project at Creel Elementary will utilize $125,000 of this allocation.  The LED lighting will be funded through capital.

Board approval is required for purchase orders over $50,000. The standard agreement template has been used which does not require legal review.
