Hospital Expansion Project Bids – City Administrator Prafke recommended acceptance of the Hospital Commission recommendation for award of bid for twenty-four (24) additional components of the 2018 Hospital Expansion Project.  Prafke reminded the Council that should they approve the bid awards, it would be more difficult to untangle/retract from the project should the Council choose to no longer continue with the project.  Councilmember Johnson questioned what amount of change orders could be expected as the project moves forward.  Owner’s Agent John Albert indicated that five percent (5%) was budgeted for change orders, but three percent (3%) was the average.  In motion by Pfeifer, seconded by Johnson, Resolution No. 2018-57 entitled “Resolution Awarding Bids For 24 Various Components Of The 2018 Hospital Expansion Project“ was introduced.  Upon roll call, with all in favor, the Resolution was declared passed and adopted.  A complete copy of Resolution No. 2018-57 is contained in the City Administrator’s book entitled Council Resolutions 22.
