Agenda Report # 1


TO: Mayor and Council

SUBJECT: Wynnton Road Master Plan - Supplemental Agreement Number 1

INITIATED BY: Planning Department



Recommendation: Approval is requested to sign the Supplemental Agreement Number 1, with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) for the Wynnton Road Master Plan (streetscapes) project.

Background: Resolution No. 338-08 authorized the City Manager to accept funds for the construction of this streetscapes project along Wynnton Road, from Peacock Avenue to Hilton Avenue. Since that time construction has begun and is expected to be completed by fall of this year. The original contract with GDOT establishes a completion date of no later than December 31, 2018. In order to insure that the contractural obligations are met under this agreement, GDOT has requested that a supplement agreement be signed, extending the completion date to December 31, 2019.

Analysis: Authorizing the City Manager to enter into this agreement will protect the funding for this project in the event the construction work should go beyond the original date of December 31, 2018.

Financial Considerations: The agreement will maintain the level of funding now established for this project.

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: There will not be any additional fiscal impact under this agreement.

Legal Considerations: The City Attorney has approved this agreement.

Recommendations/Actions: Approve the resolution authorizing the City Manager to sign the Supplemental Agreement Number 1, with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) for the Wynnton Road Master Plan (streetscapes) project.
