Request

City Manager requesting the Mayor and Council to; 1) declare an emergency related to unsafe condition of certain sections of Fort Florida Road, 2) to waive strict compliance with purchasing policies as necessary, and 3) authorize the City Manager to make repairs as expeditiously as possible to unsafe sections of the road.


Purpose

This emergency request is needed at this time to protect the safety of the public utilizing Fort Florida Road.

Considerations

The City's Construction Manager has determined that construction traffic has deteriorated sections of Fort Florida Road to the point that these sections of the road have become hazardous.

The Council has authorized the issuance of bids to repave sections of Fort Florida Road. However it could be 60 to 90 days before re-paving could actually begin.

In the interim, the City needs to take decisive action to make repairs to the hazardous sections.

Cost/Funding

Staff is acquiring quotes and should be able to make the Council aware of cost at this meeting.  Funds are available from the General Fund Budget.

Recommendation

1.) Declare an emergency related to unsafe conditions of certain sections of Fort Florida Road.

2.) Suspend purchasing rules related to authorize necessary emergency repairs.

3.) Authorize the City Manager to make the repairs as expeditious as possible.
