Wayne City Council To Discuss Possible Cost-Sharing With County Club In Replacing Pump

WAYNE – A handful of agenda items will feature action requests and resolution items during the regularly scheduled Wayne City Council meeting on Tuesday, October 19 at 5:30 p.m.

From the council chambers inside City Hall, the group will first take action on a ‘Certificate of Extended Warranty Period for Corrective Action’.

This would be for the “2019 Nebraska Street Improvements Project” from Robert Woehler & Sons Construction. Jon Mooberry with JEO Consulting Group, Inc. will be present. This Certificate will provide for an extended warranty period through July 8, 2022, for the items identified therein. In addition, the contractor shall provide the necessary Certificate of Insurance and Payment and Performance Bonds through the extended warranty period

Councilmembers will then address ‘Change Order Number 1’ for the “Pine Heights Road & Utility Improvements Project” through. Myers Construction Mooberry with JEO will share more information as the Substantial and Final Completion dates will be extended to November 5 and 19 respectively.

The first of back-to-back resolution items will then highlight a trio of proposals regarding engineering design services for the “Chicago Street and Storm Sewer and Paving” project. Staff is recommending that the project be given to Olsson for $32,600 for engineering design services as the other proposals came from ACES ($36,000) and JEO Consulting Group ($51,070).

Black Hills Energy will next be moving into the southeast quadrant of Wayne and is making a similar request for a resolution and agreement that was approved last spring. The previous blanket permit was just for the northeast quadrant during the first phase.

A discussion item could also turn into a possible action on cost-sharing between the City of Wayne and Wayne Country Club for installation costs of a new pump on well number six for irrigation purposes. More information will be provided during the meeting as the golf course has proposed a 50/50 cost-share to replace the pump.

The City of Wayne owns the front nine and the irrigation has the potential to clear up well number seven.

City of Wayne staff have obtained four proposals pertaining to the “Well Number 6 Pump Replacement” project. The low bid is Downey Drilling from Kearney for $35,405 as this bid will be voted on Tuesday night.

After placing a “Notice of Vacancy” in Ward 2 for Yasuko Taoka following a job change, councilmember Dwaine Spieker submitted his resignation of Ward 3 following the October 19 meeting since he’s moving out of his ward to a new location in Wayne.
