Explanation

1. A Resolution authorizing approval of a sole source purchase of three (3) Flygt pumps from Electric Pump for the Heritage Sanitary Sewer Lift Station for the amount of $100,934.79 and authorizing the Utilities General Manager to execute any necessary documents for purchase of said pumps. (Tony Loete, Utilities General Manager)

Explanation: The Heritage lift station is one of three major stations that pump wastewater from the southeast parts of Moline, as well as parts of East Moline, and is part of the Rock River Regional Sanitary Sewer System. Staff has a three-part plan to upgrade the station. Part one was completed in 2017 and included replacement and enhancement of pump controls in conjunction with fiber optic cable installation to the station. Part two of the plan includes replacement of the pumps at this station. The station is a high maintenance area, as pump plugging/fouling has increased significantly in the last five years. The proposed replacement pumps are equipped with cutting-edge chopper impellers. In 2020, staff intends to complete the final stage of improvements by replacing wet well piping within the station. The Public Works Department has standardized to Flygt pumps in all storm and sanitary sewer lift stations, as well as at both treatment plants due to their longevity and reliability. Staff recommends continued use of Flygt pumps. Flygt’s exclusive representative for our region is Electric Pump. Staff recommends purchase of the three pumps with chopper style impellers from Electric Pump for an amount not to exceed $100,934.79. Additional documentation attached.

Engineering Services with Sam Schwartz Consulting, LLC. for services related to analyzing bike trail alternatives. (Scott Hinton, City Engineer)

Explanation: The City Council recently directed City staff to engage a consulting firm to review options and make recommendations for the location of a bike path between 7th Avenue and either the new I-74 bridge or the Mississippi River. With assistance from the Illinois bicycling community, staff identified four firms with experience in this type of work. Staff found Sam Schwartz Consulting to be the most qualified firm to perform the analysis based on their extensive history with this type of work, and their past history with the City of Moline. Schwartz was a member of the Moving Moline Forward consulting team, a member of the Schwartz team assigned to this project and was the primary author of the River-to-River Corridor Study.

Renew Moline and City staff recently met with the Schwartz team to discuss the goals, objectives, and challenges of the project. Schwartz proposes to provide consulting services on a time and material basis for the estimated cost of $30,912. Staff reviewed the proposal and finds it to be reasonable given the scope of the work required. Additional documentation attached.
