Resolution No.: 2018-136

Lake Zumbro Funding Request

Whereas, On Tuesday July 31, 2018 the bids from the contractors interested in the Lake Zumbro dredging project were opened. The bids were $2,100,000 over the engineer’s estimate based on the quantity of material which they had hoped to remove from the lake during the dredging project.

Whereas, It was suggested by the professional engineering staff after reviewing the bids that they believe they can shave about $1,000,000 in costs from the project by “value engineering” discussions with Brennen, the proposed project contractor. That leaves about $1,100,000 which still needs to be raised from other sources.

Whereas, Since Wabasha County’s $100,000 contribution made up 2.9% of the project cost, it is being requested that Wabasha County potentially fund an additional 2.9% of the $1,100,000 project shortfall which comes to $31,430.

Now Therefore be it Resolved by the Wabasha County Board of Commissioners that, Wabasha County will contribute up to an additional $31,430 to the Lake Zumbro dredging project. The County Administrator is authorized to determine the amount, up to $31,430, of actual funding to be made if regional partners provide funding in an amount less than their proportional share. Those funds will be spread out over the remaining payments left on the initial $100,000 contribution starting in 2019.

Resolution No.: 2018-137
