We are required to gain approval from the Recreation and Park Commission for construction contracts that exceed 10% base bid change orders or have considerable construction duration extensions. We will be presenting this situation to the Capital Committee of the Commission this coming Wednesday, December 7. Please see agenda item wording below for reference. You can also click here for the full Commission agenda document.

Geneva Community Garden- Contract Time and Budget Increase– Discussion and possible action to amend the contract with GECMS, Inc DBA Giron Construction for the Geneva Community Garden Project (3063v) to increase the change order amount allowed under the contract from $69,477 to an amount not to exceed $104,216, which is greater than 10% over the original approved contract amount, and to extend the contract duration by changing the substantial completion date from May 29, 2017 to no later than January 24, 2018
