Station 3: Timeline

2015 May 4. Fire Station 3 appears on the May 4, 2015 agenda of the Ann Arbor City Council in the form of a $37,600 contract with Emergency Restoration of Troy, MI, for the removal and replacement of the roof. Because the amount of the contract is less than $100,000, it appears on the Consent Agenda, which are items considered routine, and can be approved in aggregate on a single vote – unless a councilmember pulls it out of the Consent Agenda for separate consideration. According to the staff memo accompanying the council resolution, the existing roof is of an unknown age but has deteriorated to a point where patching is no longer able to stop the leaks. Funding for the project was included in the approved FY 2015 General Capital Fund (00CP). Four bids were received for the work on April 7, 2015. Emergency Restoration Inc. of Troy, MI, was the lowest responsible bidder. The resolution includes a recommended 25% project contingency of $9,400 to cover potential contract change orders to be approved by the City Administrator if necessary. The recommended contingency, as a percentage, is higher than normal to address any unknown damage to the roof decking material that may be exposed once the roofing is removed.
