Bid Results on the 2022 Street Striping Project
All of the streets in Cortez are in need of restriping and it is more efficient to contract this work out since we do not have the proper striping equipment to perform the work in an efficient manner. We have been contracting the striping out for over ten years, and this allows the work to be completed in approximately one week and utilizes a properly-equipped striping truck with precise placement of the stripes. The monies have been budgeted in the Public Works General Fund, Traffic Services.
As we did in 2013 and 2016, our specifications have an escalation clause that states, "It is recognized it is in the best interest of the City to not seek yearly bids for this project. The Contractor shall be allowed to renew this Contract, provided the total cost of the project, with the same parameters as outlined in the Bid Documents, does not increase more than 3% per annum for a period of three years. In the event of extenuating circumstances, such as paint availability or rapid material price escalation, the City reserves the right to renegotiate the Contract or put the project back out to bid based upon the best interest of the City."
Public Works Staff drew up specifications for furnishing and installing approximately 1100 gallons of paint marking material on City Streets, which includes the street striping and bike lane striping. The City received the following bids on April 18, 2022:
Branson Traffic Control Co., Inc., Durango: $44,094.00
Stripe-A-Lot, Inc., Montrose: $50,814.00
Staff recommends awarding the bid for the 2022 Street Striping Project to Branson Traffic Control Co., Inc., at their bid price of $44,094.00 with the escalation clause for three years.
