Village Administrator Report – May 12th, 2015
Project Updates – The Nyack Marina rebuild project has received one bid in response to our request for proposals. As you will see, Rick Gilbert from BlueShore Engineering is recommending that we accept the bid from Trevcon. Rick feels that the bid was within acceptable range of the estimates he prepared. It has been listed as an action item for the Board to consider accepting and awarding the bid to Trevcon. The Memorial Park Fishing Pier project has been awarded and the anticipated start date for construction is the week of May 25th. The Children’s Playground project has all of the playground equipment pieces in place. Although we are waiting on a final fence design and cost estimate, the playground is in compliance with our risk assessment review as the temporary fence is bordering the two adjacent roadways that require fencing as they are within 200’ feet or less of the playground. The Senior Center building upgrades are in design with Pilla Associates. It is estimated that they will need about two weeks to prepare the plans and specs. Upon completion of the plans and specs, I will ask the Board to allow it to go out to bid. The Fifth Avenue Catch Basin & Storm Pipe replacement project has been awarded and work will begin within a week. This project includes the installation of a Catch Basin just east of the entrance to BOCES back driveway, and the installation of approximately 75’ of 18” storm drain pipe. Plans and specs for the Skate Plaza project have been released and to-date nine companies have requested the plans and specs. This should provide us with a competitive bid process. Bids are due back on June 2nd. The Memorial Park Gazebo project is awaiting final design concepts for the new structure. I have requested proposals for the removal of the existing structure from several companies who have the capability to take down the structure and grade and seed the area to match the existing grade of the field. We have received confirmation that our CHIPS allocation will remain at last year’s number of $73,739.16. However, we have a rollover amount of $18,682.83 to add to our funding for roadwork. We are negotiating with O&R for additional road repair funding for those roads affected by their gas main replacement construction. We have been preparing for the installation of the Bench by the Road at Memorial Park project and dedication ceremony scheduled for the 18th with the projects tireless and dedicated Committee that is chaired by Bill Batson. DPW has been filling potholes along the route of Grand Fondo course. I have been working with George Overton, Jack Dunnigan and the NPA to help improve the breakdown and clean-up of the Acada Street Fair scheduled for Sunday the 17th. I will attend both events.
