Title
CONSIDER APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT NO. 2 WITH MRS ENVIRONMENTAL, INC., (MRS) (C-16-011) TO INCREASE THE CONTRACT AMOUNT BY $350,000 AND EXTEND THE AGREEMENT FOR ONE YEAR TO PROVIDE ON-CALL ENVIRONMENTAL CONSULTING SERVICES, TO BE PAID FOR THROUGH DEVELOPER DEPOSITS (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

In October 2016, the City entered into an agreement with MRS Environmental, Inc. (MRS) to conduct on-call environmental consulting services (Exhibit No. 1). The original agreement was for a total contract amount of $750,000 for three years, not to exceed $250,000 per year. Based on the ability of MRS to perform the work requested and the high level of development that requires this type of work, the agreement was subsequently amended to extend the agreement for the first of two optional additional years and increased the contract amount by $250,000 for a total of $1,000,000 (Exhibit No. 2).
Staff is requesting that the City Council approve Amendment No. 2 to the agreement with MRS (Exhibit No. 3) to extend the agreement for the second of the two optional additional years, increase the contract amount by $350,000 and eliminate the "per year" language. The total amended contract amount is $1,350,000 through the completion of the agreement in October 2021.

The original contract provided the opportunity to extend the contract for one additional year as requested by this item. To provide the City Council with flexibility in regards to its decision, staff has provided an additional option in the Alternatives Section of the staff report.
The main recommendation extends the contract for one year and increases the contract amount by $350,000. This recommendation allows continued processing of current and new projects without delays. T...
