RE: ADMINISTRATION Ballot Proposal for Millage Renewal plus Headlee
Rollback for Local Street Improvements

WHEREAS, the Adrian City Commission, on January 2, 1996, unanimously authorized
a ballot proposal to establish a one (1.000) mill tax levy for a period of ten (10) years to
pay the costs of public improvements, including local street improvements; and

WHEREAS, the electors approved the aforementioned ballot proposal resulting in
$5.0 million of local street improvements during the subsequent decade, including
reconstruction and resurfacing of almost twenty miles (20) of the forty-four (44) mile local
street system; and

WHEREAS, the aforesaid millage was renewed for a 10-year period in November of
2005 resulting in an additional $4.7 million of local street improvements during this decade,
including reconstruction and resurfacing of almost fourteen (14) miles of local streets; and

WHEREAS, the local street millage expires in 2016 and the Parks & Engineering
Services Director and the City Administrator recommend action be taken under the
authority of Public Act 279 of 1909, as amended, to renew the one mill public improvement
millage for an additional ten years in order to provide the resources necessary to continue
the systematic reconstruction and resurfacing of local streets.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Commission, under the Authority
of Public Act 279 of 1909, as amended, hereby proposes that Section 9.1 of the Charter of
the City of Adrian shall be amended, effective with the City election to be held November 4,
2014, to read as follows:

Section 9.1. The City shall have the power to assess taxes and levy and collect
rents, tolls and excises. Exclusive of any levies authorized by statute to be made
beyond charter tax limitations, an annual ad valorem shall not exceed one and one-
half percent of the assessed value of all real and personal property subject to
taxation in the city. Provided, however, the annual ad valorem tax levy shall be
increased by one-tenth of one (.1%) percent of the assessed value of all real and
personal property subject to taxation in the city for a period of ten years from 2016
through 2026 to pay the costs of capital improvements, including local street
improvements.

Provisions of existing Section 9.1 of the Charter of the City of Adrian, after expiration
of the capital improvement millage approved by the voters in 1996, to be altered or
abrogated by such proposal, if adopted, now reads as follows:

Section 9.1. The City shall have the power to assess taxes and levy and collect
rents, tolls and excises. Exclusive of any levies authorized by statute to be made
beyond charter tax rate limitations, an annual ad valorem shall not exceed one and
one-half percent of the assessed value of all real and personal property subject to
taxation in the city.

BE IT, FURTHER RESOLVED that the purpose of the proposed amendment of Section
9.1 shall be designated on the ballot as follows:

A proposal to amend Section 9.1 of the Charter of the City of Adrian to increase
(renew) the permitted ad valorem tax levy limitation by one (1) mill for a period of
ten (10) years to provide funds to pay the costs of public improvements, including
local street improvements.

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the City Clerk shall forthwith transmit copies of the
proposed amendments to Section 9.1 of the Governor of the State of Michigan for approval,
and transmit a copy of the foregoing statements of purpose of the proposed amendments to
the Attorney General of the State of Michigan for approval, as required by law.

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the proposed charter amendment to Section 9.1
shall be, and the same is hereby ordered to be submitted to the qualified electors of the City
of Adrian at the regularly scheduled City election to be held on the fourth day of November,
2014, and the City Clerk is hereby directed to give notice of the election and notice of
registration therefore in the manner prescribed by law and to do all things and to provide all
supplies necessary to submit the charter amendment to the vote of the electors as required
by law.

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the proposed amendment to Section 9.1 shall be
submitted to the electors in the following form:

PROPOSED RENEWAL OF THE PREVIOUSLY APPROVED ADDITION TO
SECTION 9.1 OF THE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF ADRIAN.

Shall the Charter of the City of Adrian be amended for purposes of paying
the costs of public improvements, including local street improvements, by
levy and collection of one (1.00) mill ($1.00 per $1,000 of taxable value)
per year for ten (10) years, beginning in 2015, as a renewal of that portion
of a 1.00 mill authorization previously authorized by the electors as reduced
by operation of the Headlee amendment, which was 0.9746 in 2014, plus
the new additional millage in the amount equal to the amount reduced by
the operation of the Headlee amendment, which was 0.0254 in 2014? If
approved, it is estimated that 1.00 mill would raise approximately $364,000
when first levied in 2015.

Shall the proposed amendment be adopted?

( ) YES

( ) NO

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the proposed amendment shall be published in full,
together with the existing charter provisions altered or abrogated, thereby, as part of the
notice of election.

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the canvas and determination of the votes of said
question shall be made in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan and the Charter
of the City of Adrian.

Commissioner Rising motioned to adopt Option II; this was seconded by
Commissioner Gallatin. Discussion broke out among the Commission with many
expressing concern about how confusing the language was for option II and, even
though the increase would be small, residents would still see it as an increase.
Option II was denied with a 2-5-0 vote.
Ayes: Commissioners Gallatin and Rising
Nays: Mayor Berryman and Commissioners Faulhaber, Munson, Dudas and
Berryman Adams
Abstained: Non

Commissioner Dudas then motioned to adopt Option I; seconded by
Commissioner Faulhaber and this resolution was adopted by a 7-0 vote.

Memo

Date: July 30, 2014
To: Shane Horn, City Administrator
From: Vincent Emrick, Chief of Police
RE: Recommended purchase of reserve equipment


As you are aware, our Police Department maintains a reserve unit of a dozen officers. These men and
women volunteer their time to assist us with traffic control, parades, and other special events. Over the
last few years they have been an invaluable resource to draw upon to provide the same level of service
to the community on a smaller budget. In that same time, we have struggled to outfit them with the
same duty gear as our regular full time officers.
Many reserve officers are still assigned the older 1911 style Smith & Wesson handguns that were issued
in 1993. Current sworn officers carry a Springfield XD .45 which is a marked improvement in ergonomics
and capacity. I have been working to standardize our equipment and I have placed firearms as a priority
due to the critical importance and high risk associated with their use. With that in mind, I request
authorization to purchase 10 Springfield XD handguns and the accompanying TLR-1 Streamlights to
outfit our reserve unit.
This update was approved in the 2014/15 capital budget and was to be completed using drug forfeiture
funds at no cost to the Citys general fund. Funds for this purchase are available in the non-drug

REGULAR AGENDA

July 30, 2014

MEMORANDUM

TO: Shane Horn, City Administrator

Cc:

FROM: Todd Brown, Director of Parks & Engineering Services
Sarah Osburn, City Attorney

SUBJECT: City of Adrian/Shell Gas Station Right-Of-Way Agreement


Walters-Dimmick owns and operates the Adrian Shell station located at 711
S. Main Street. A confirmed release of petroleum products on the property
was reported to the Michigan Department of Environmental quality (MDEQ) in
2009.

Results of lab testing reveal the presence of chemicals typically found in
gasoline in sample from groundwater along the northern portion of the
Property. It is inferred that soil and/or groundwater contamination has
migrated into, or could potentially migrate into the West Beecher Street
right-of-way.

Sarah Osburn and I have worked through the attached agreement with the
preparer, Mr. Donald Penniman and feel comfortable that the language
protects the City and is in the best interest of all parties that the City enter
into this agreement.






AGREEMENT CONCERNING THE WEST BEECHER STREET RIGHT-OF-WAY
ADRIAN, MICHIGAN
This agreement is entered into this day of , 2014, by and between Walters-
Dimmick Petroleum, Inc. (Walters-Dimmick), a Michigan corporation, and the City of Adrian (City),
a Michigan municipal corporation, regarding the presence or potential presence of environmental
contamination in the West Beecher Street right-of-way in the City of Adrian, Lenawee County,
Michigan.
Walters-Dimmick owns and operates the retail gasoline station known as Adrian Shell, with a
common address of 711 South Main Street, Adrian, Michigan (Property). The property is also
listed with a sub-address of 504 West Beecher Street. A confirmed release of petroleum products
on the Property was reported to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) on
May 5, 2009. Walters-Dimmick has performed appropriate corrective actions under the
requirements of Part 213 of the Michigan Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act,
P.A. 451 of 1994, as amended (Part 213), and remains in compliance with Part 213.
Results of laboratory analysis of soil and groundwater samples collected in the course of
corrective actions indicated the presence of chemical constituents of gasoline in the northern
portion of the Property. Detected concentrations of these constituents exceed Risk-Based
Screening Levels (RBSLs) established by MDEQ. Based on the proximity of these detected
concentrations to the north Property boundary (i.e. the south boundary of the West Beecher Street
right-of-way), it is inferred that soil and/or groundwater contamination has migrated into, or could
potentially migrate into the West Beecher Street right-of-way. The area of known and potential
contamination, reasonably inferred by the results of laboratory analysis of soil and groundwater
samples, is illustrated in map view on Figure 1 and in cross-sectional view on Figure 2 of Exhibit
1 of this agreement. Contaminated soils are present at depths greater than 12 feet below the
ground surface in proximity to the north Property boundary.
Based on these conditions, City and Walters-Dimmick agree to the following:
1. This agreement shall be limited to the section of the West Beecher Street right-of-way
immediately north of the Property, an area measuring 183.15 feet east-west, comprising
the northern boundary of the Property, and extending 66 feet north-south, the entire width
of the right-of-way. This area is identified as the "Area of Alternate Institutional Control"
on Figure 1 of Exhibit 1.
2. In the event that excavation for installation, maintenance, or replacement of city-owned
utilities in the West Beecher Street right-of-way, Walters-Dimmick will reimburse City for
reasonable costs of transportation and disposal of contaminated soils from excavation
from depths greater than 12 feet within the area covered by this agreement. For purposes
of this agreement "contaminated" soils or groundwater shall be defined as soils with
concentrations of gasoline constituents exceeding RBSLs current as of the date of
excavation. Representative soil samples shall be analyzed by a laboratory certified under
the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (NELAP) prior to
transportation or disposal. If analytical results indicate contaminant concentrations
exceed RBSLs, Walters-Dimmick will reimburse City for reasonable costs of laboratory
analysis.
3. City will provide no less than 90 days notice to Walters-Dimmick of any planned excavation
within the area subject to this agreement and will allow Walters-Dimmick or their agents
to review plans, specifications, and cost estimates; and shall consider reasonable
requests by Walters-Dimmick or their agents for changes in plans or procedures, prior to
City or its contractors beginning such work, providing such changes do not increase
project costs based on costs in effect at the time of excavation. Notice shall be addressed
to:
Walters-Dimmick Petroleum, Inc.
1620 S. Kalamazoo Avenue
Marshall, Ml 49068
269-781-4654
Attn: John Dimmick
In the event of emergency repairs involving excavation, City shall notify Walters-Dimmick
within 24 hours of discovery of conditions requiring emergency repairs.
4. Walters-Dimmick and its agents shall have the right to observe excavation and installation,
repair, or replacement of utilities within the area covered by this agreement and shall have
the right to collect and analyze samples of soils to be excavated or soils that have been
excavated and stockpiled.
5. In the event contamination is discovered in the area covered by this agreement that is not
reasonably inferred to have originated on Walters-Dimmick property, Walters-Dimmick
shall have no responsibility and shall bear no cost to address such contamination.
6. In the event analytical results of soil or groundwater samples collected and analyzed
subsequent to the date of this agreement indicate contaminant concentrations within the
area covered by this agreement have degraded to levels below applicable RBSLs, this
agreement shall expire and neither City nor Walters-Dimmick shall be bound by its
provisions. Such expiration shall be effective upon written notification to City following
review of analytical results by Walters-Dimmick or its agents and determination that
contaminant concentrations have degraded to levels below applicable RBSLs.
7. This agreement shall inure to the benefit of City and Walters-Dimmick and shall be binding
on each party's successors and assigns.

SUBJ ECT: DPW LED Lighting Project


The Director of Parks & Forestry has received a quote from GUSCO Energy to remove our high
pressure sodium bay lights at our DPW garage and replace with LED lighting. GUSCO Energy
has completed an application with Consumers Energy that includes a rebate of $1,696.60 for this
project. We have utilized GUSCO on other similar projects on city buildings and lighting
projects and have been pleased with their level of performance and service. The Citys portion
of this project after the rebate would be $9,650.40

The City Charter allows the bid process to be waived when it is determined that no advantage to
the City would result in obtaining additional quotes. I, therefore, urge your favorable
consideration authorizing GUSCO Energy of Toledo, OH to perform this lighting upgrade at our
DPW facility on Race Street in the amount of $9,650.40 and that the bid process be waived.


Respectfully submitted,



Shane A. Horn

FROM: Todd Brown, Director of Parks & Engineering Services

SUBJECT: DPW LED Lighting Project


GUSCO Energy has completed an application through Consumers Energy and have
proposed to complete an LED lighting project at the DPW facility to replace old lights
in the large garage area.

The application through Consumers Energy has awarded the City with a rebate for
this project in the amount of $1,696.60 for energy efficiency. The total cost of this
project is estimated at $11,347.00, however, the Citys portion after rebate would be
$9,650.40.

I recommend awarding contract to GUSCO in the amount of $9,650.40 to move
forward with this project.

that the incentive check be sent to us and we would invoice you for the original amount of the job minus the
incentive amount to us which would be $9,650.40. The rebate should be very close to the amount calculated
and our final invoice to the city will be $9,650.40.

Re: Revised resolution for charter amendment and ballot proposal for
millage renewal for local street improvements

On J uly 21, 2014 the City Commission adopted resolution 14-092, Ballot Proposal for Millage
Renewal for Local Street Improvements. As renewing the millage requires a charter amendment,
the amendment and ballot language must be approved by the Attorney Generals office and the
Governors office before it can be placed on the ballot.

The City Clerk submitted resolution 14-092 as required. The Attorney Generals office is
requiring some changes before it will recommend approval. The revisions are to ensure that we
have consistent language in the charter amendment and in the ballot language. Further, we have
to be under the 100 word limit.

The one change that you might question is the removal of the word renewal from the purpose
section as well as from the ballot language. The Attorney Generals office is requiring that we
use the word replacement instead. They are requiring this change because the previous charter
amendment was for 1 mill, and, as we will not be levying 1 mill, the new amendment is not a
renewal. According to the Attorney Generals office it is instead a replacement. We are
replacing 1 mill with 0.9746 mill.

We have received preliminary approval for the revised resolution so once we submit the certified
resolution, approval should be expedited. This will allow us to meet the August 12, 2014 ballot
language deadline. If any changes are made to the resolution, we will have to start the process
over again and most likely will not be able to meet the deadline.

If you have any questions regarding this matter please give me a call.

RE: ADMINISTRATION Amended Ballot Proposal for Millage Renewal for Local
Street Improvements

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, the Adrian City Commission, on January 2, 1996, unanimously authorized
a ballot proposal to establish a one (1.000) mill tax levy for a period of ten (10) years to
pay the costs of public improvements, including local street improvements; and

WHEREAS, the electors approved the aforementioned ballot proposal resulting in
$5.0 million of local street improvements during the subsequent decade, including
reconstruction and resurfacing of almost twenty miles (20) of the forty-four (44) mile local
street system; and

WHEREAS, the aforesaid millage was renewed for a 10-year period in November of
2005 resulting in an additional $4.7 million of local street improvements during this decade,
including reconstruction and resurfacing of almost fourteen (14) miles of local streets; and

WHEREAS, the local street millage expires in 2015 and the Parks & Engineering
Services Director and the City Administrator recommend action be taken under the
authority of Public Act 279 of 1909, as amended, to renew the one mill public improvement
millage for an additional ten years in order to provide the resources necessary to continue
the systematic reconstruction and resurfacing of local streets.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Commission, under the Authority
of Public Act 279 of 1909, as amended, hereby proposes that Section 9.1 of the Charter of
the City of Adrian shall be amended, effective with the City election to be held November 4,
2014, to read as follows:

Section 9.1. The City shall have the power to assess taxes and levy and collect
rents, tolls and excises. Exclusive of any levies authorized by statute to be made
beyond charter tax limitations, an annual ad valorem shall not exceed one and one-
half percent of the assessed value of all real and personal property subject to
taxation in the city; provided however, the annual ad valorem tax levy shall be
increased by one-tenth of one percent (0.001%) of the assessed value of all real and
personal property subject to taxation in the city for a period of ten years from 1996
through 2005 to pay the costs of capital improvements, including local street
improvements. Provided, however, the annual ad valorem tax levy shall be increased
by one-tenth of (.1%) percent of the value of all real and personal property subject
to taxation in the city for a period of ten years from 2006 through 2015 to pay the
costs of capital improvements, including local street improvements. Provided,
further, the annual ad valorem tax levy shall be increased by .09746 of one percent
(0.9746 mill) of the assessed value of all real and personal property subject to
taxation in the city for a period of ten years from 2016 through 2025 to pay the
costs of capital improvements, including local street improvements.

BE IT, FURTHER RESOLVED that the purpose of the proposed amendment of Section
9.1 is as follows:

A proposal to amend Section 9.1 of the Charter of the City of Adrian to authorize
0.9746 mill for a period of ten (10) years to provide funds to pay the costs of public
improvements, including local street improvements, thereby replacing the current
authorization for levy of 1 mill for these purposes during the years from 2006
through 2015.

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the City Clerk shall forthwith transmit copies of the
proposed amendments to Section 9.1 of the Governor of the State of Michigan for approval,
and transmit a copy of the foregoing statements of purpose of the proposed amendments to
the Attorney General of the State of Michigan for approval, as required by law.

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the proposed charter amendment to Section 9.1
shall be, and the same is hereby ordered to be submitted to the qualified electors of the City
of Adrian at the regularly scheduled City election to be held on the fourth day of November,
2014, and the City Clerk is hereby directed to give notice of the election and notice of
registration therefore in the manner prescribed by law and to do all things and to provide all
supplies necessary to submit the charter amendment to the vote of the electors as required
by law.

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the proposed amendment to Section 9.1 shall be
submitted to the electors in the following form:

PROPOSED REPLACEMENT OF THE PREVIOUSLY APPROVED ADDITION TO
SECTION 9.1 OF THE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF ADRIAN.

Shall the Charter of the City of Adrian be amended for purposes of paying
the costs of public improvements, including local street improvements, to
authorize the levy and collection of 0.9746 mill ($0.9746 per $1,000) of
taxable value per year for ten (10) years, beginning in 2016, replacing the
current 1 mill which was adopted for the period of 2006 through 2015? If
approved, it is estimated that 0.9746 mill would raise approximately
$355,000 when first levied in 2016.

Shall the proposed amendment be adopted?

( ) YES

( ) NO

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the proposed amendment shall be published in full,
together with the existing charter provisions altered or abrogated, thereby, as part of the
notice of election.

BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED that the canvas and determination of the votes of said
question shall be made in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan and the Charter

SUBJ ECT: Maumee St. Generator & ATS


Sealed bids were received by the purchasing department on Tuesday J uly 29, 2014 at 2:00 pm
for the purchase of a stand-by generator and automatic transfer switch to be used at the Maumee
St. lift-station. It has been our goal over the past few years to provide each of our major lift-
stations with stand-by back-up generators and automatic transfer switches. Maumee St. station is
the last of the major lift-stations to require such a generator. In the past, we have relied on a
portable generator to be taken to the site during power outages. This procedure often requires
after hour call-ins of staff and potentially lengthy delays in restoring power. With this new
generator and automatic transfer switch, power is restored to the lift-station within seconds. We
will keep the current portable generator as it can be used as a back-up to all the lift-stations that
currently have stand-by generators in case there is a failure at one of the sites.

I respectfully recommend that we proceed with the purchase of this generator and automatic
transfer switch and award the bid to the low bidder that met all specifications, Superior Industrial
Sales of J ackson, MI for a total price of $29,947.50. Funds for this purchase are budgeted in the
FY2014-2015 Waste Water Plant Capital Budget (497-554.00-977.570).

SUBJ ECT: Broad St. Washer/Compactor


Sealed bids were received by the purchasing department on Tuesday J uly 29, 2014 at 2:00 pm
for the purchase of a washer/compactor to be used at the Broad St. lift-station. Broad St. lift-
station is our largest lift-station and collects a large amount of rags, trash, and other debris with
two flex-rakes that are submerged in the water. These rakes operate 24 hours per day and deposit
the rags and trash onto tables. These tables are then manually cleaned several times per week by
shoveling the rags into large garbage containers. The containers are then carried to another
building to be deposited in a dumpster. This process is time consuming and poses many safety
hazards to our employees. This washer/compactor will actually wash the rags, squeeze the
water out, compact them and then deposit them into the dumpster through a screw conveyor and
custom chute. This will improve operations at the site, drastically reduce the number of times our
dumpster will need to be dumped, and will provide a safer environment for our employees.

I respectfully recommend that we proceed with the purchase of this washer/compactor and award
the bid to the low bidder, Duperon Corporation of Saginaw, MI for a total price of $59,000.00.
Funds for this purchase are budgeted in the FY2014-2015 Waste Water Plant Capital Budget
(497-554.00-977.594).

WHEREAS on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 the Purchasing Office received two (2)
bids for the aforementioned washer/compactor with the following results:

Vendor Location Washer/Compactor Controls Total
Duperon Corporation Saginaw, MI $50,100.00 $8,900.00 $59,000.00

Paul G. Trinka, Fire Chief

SUBJ ECT: HVAC System Fire Station


Sealed bids were received until 2:00 p.m. on J uly 29, 2014 for the
purchase and installation of a new HVAC system at the Fire Station. The system
currently in place is original to the building and has passed its expected useful
life. Over the past heating season, the system malfunctioned at least half a
dozen times, leaving the employees who work there very uncomfortable. With
each breakdown Adrian Mechanical had to search for parts to keep the system
going. Our present service provider and the Fire Chief are of the opinion the
system needs to be replaced, along with some modifications, to make the new
system more efficient.
That being said, we urge the approval of the bid to replace the system.
With this approval, the system should be able to be installed and working by the
end of September, hopefully before the heating season begins.
There are sufficient funds in the Building Maintenance Fund to cover this
expenditure.

MEMO

DATE: J uly 30, 2014

TO: Cindy Prue

RE: Adrian Fire Station
Low Bidder Interview

FROM: Vernon E. Fry, P.E.

MEMO PURPOSE:

Comments, evaluations and recommendations resulting from my interview of Mr. Christian Freshour
of Thompson Plumbing & Heating, Inc.

SUMMARY OF INTERVIEW:

I contacted Mr. Freshour this morning and he willingly agreed to meet and complete the Pre-contract
Award Review form that I had prepared to evaluate the low bidder(s). He verbally confirmed that
Addendum #3 had been received and was included. The following comments evolved from that
interview and a copy of the completed form is attached for your reference.

Item 1.
Thompson P & H has completed, or is currently contracting, multiple projects of various magnitude.
The listed projects, plus a detailed discussion with Mr. Freshour, concludes that the firm is well
capable of performing this projects requirements.

Item 2.
Due to the immediacy of the interview, references will be provided upon our request. Due to the need
of a recommendation by tomorrow AM, time does not allow contact with references.

Item 3.
The proposed crew size and trade mixture is consistent with my evaluation of the project
requirements.

Item 4.
Mr. Freshours written answer, supplemented with a detailed discussion, indicates that the proposed
crew levels, equipment delivery schedules and work procedures will result in the new system being
operable by October 1, 2014. Although some commissioning functions may extend beyond that date,
these are only fine-tuning issues and the system will provide the comfort conditions necessary.

Item 5.
The listed manufacturers are consistent with the specified manufacturers.

Item 6.
The listed Sub-Contractors are all qualified firms and capable of performing all requirements for this
project.

Item 7.
Due to the immediacy of the interview, a more detailed schedule of values will be provided in the AIA
G703, or equal, document. Mr. Freshour did indicate the value of the major categories as listed.

CONCLUSIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS:


It is my opinion that Thompson Plumbing & Heating, Inc. has successfully performed multiple projects
of similar, and larger, scope. The interview process concluded that Mr. Freshour was very familiar
with this projects requirements and had properly provided for the successful, and timely, completion
of the work in compliance with the Contract Documents.

The only concern that I feel must be noted would be the importance of expediency in issuing a
Contract, or Letter of Intent, that authorizes the Contractor to place equipment orders immediately.
The delivery schedule for the HVAC equipment is six(6) weeks from approval of shop drawings.
V. F. & Associates will expedite review and approval of all shop drawings to eliminate any delay in
that process.

It is my recommendation that a Contract be entered into with Thompson Plumbing & Heating, Inc. for
the Adrian Fire Station, Mechanical Systems Revisions. The Base Bid work scope bid amount is
$118,570.00.

The Alternate N-1 work scope is not mandatory, but it will greatly enhance the comfort control and
energy efficiency of the facility. If this Alternate is accepted, an additional sum of $3,770.00 will be
required.

Respectfully submitted,

V. F. & Associates, Inc.

Vernon E. Fry, P.E.
