2020 program changes summarized updated 11.03.2022 - Heritage and Space Coast tracks and Palm Bay Elem Electric.pdf

Ms. Wright pulled this item as the school indicated that their track was to be reslated but has come to know that the track is not the standard size and does not have the proper amount of lanes to host track meets.  She learned that the district has asked the school to come up with funds to get the additional lane installed.  Ms. Wright also stated that Space Coast currently does not have bleachers and when looking at widening the track, moving bleachers adds to the cost.  She stated that it seems to be fiscally responsible to widen the track field so the school has the opportunity to host track meets.  

Ms. Campbell stated that there is more than one school that does not have the size track to host meets and asked Dr. Mullins to explain the process.  Dr. Mullins stated that he had a conversation with Ms. Hann, Assistant Superintendent of Facilities Services, and there are additional schools that cannot accommodate eight lanes.  He stated that an adjustment was made to Eau Gallie, narrowing the lanes to make it eight lane capable.  Dr. Mullins explained that Ms. Hann proposed to take a pause so that she can do an evaluation.  He stated from an equitable standpoint, we need to consider all schools.  Dr. Mullins will bring back the results of the evaluation along with potential funding sources, should the Board choose to move in that direction.

Ms. Hann asked that the Board consider approving today's contract and she will provide information within the coming weeks for the Board's consideration and if it is the direction the Board is interested in, she would prepare a change order for approval.

Motion
Approve the District-funded (not including additive alternates) construction budget for the Space Coast Jr./Sr. High School track renewal project in the amount of $833,867.11. Approve the Guaranteed Maximum Price submitted by Ivey's Construction, Inc. under their continuing contract for construction management services, for the Space Coast Jr./Sr. High School track renewal project in an amount not to exceed $823,867.11. Approve the additive alternates outlined in the Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal up to $150,000 to be funded by others. Approve an additional allocation of 2020 sales surtax renewal funds up to $560,000 for the Space Coast Jr./Sr. High School track renewal project.
