SUBJECT: Trash Storage & Recycle Yard





DESCRIPTION: Vehicle and pedestrian traffic on College Avenue has increased around the area of the current campus refuse and recycle collection site due to the new parking lot, the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, and the Art Building. This project will relocate the trash containers adjacent to the tennis courts, remove large truck traffic from College Avenue that blocks traffic when the containers are emptied, and allow for future landscape screening of the site. This project also continues emphasis on campus beautification.



This project has been bid twice and each time we received only one response. In May bid documents were sent to four (4) companies yielding one bid of $90,500. In August bid documents were sent to thirteen (13) companies yielding one bid of $67,665.





FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:



An expenditure of $67,665 from the Capital Improvement account.





RECOMMENDATION:



President Farley recommends the Board of Regents approve award of a contract to Dinkel Construction Co. for $67,665.
