Green Update of
Green Meeting 2/6/06
The Green Committee met on Monday Feb. 6 to discuss the Stormwater Management Pre-Bid meeting which will be held on Feb. 13, 2006. Six firms were sent the RFP for the project. These firms are: Barr Engineering, Fortin Consulting, Applied Ecological Services, Bonnestroo, and Braun Intertec. The committee has further developed the project budget, which will include design for 3 commercial sites and 6 residential sites with a variety of BMP’s, and construction oversight for implementation this year. The approximate $100,000 budget will be covered by the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization Grant of $40,000; Property Owner matches for site implementation of up to $36,000; KFNA resources already committed to the project of $13,000; and a gap of up to $11,000 which will be covered by outside funders (one Letter of Inquiry for $40,000 already submitted word on submission of final proposal by March 15, 2006) or, if need be, KFNA funds NRP Phase I Strategy Livability 22.214.171.124 (which has $30,000 placed in by the board and community vote of April 2005 for Tree Planting and Stormwater Collection Projects.)
A contract for the selected consultant will be presented to the board for review and approval at the March 2006 Board Meeting.
