In the matter of a one year extension to the contract with USIC LLC for underground utility locating services. Jeremy Morris, Public Works
Background: Klamath County entered into a personal services contract with USIC Locating Services for underground utility locating services executed on June 20, 2017. Per the original contract, the estimated amount for services are $32,292.00/year. USIC is proposing a 3% increase in rates, and even with this increase our costs would stay under the $32,292.00/year estimate. USIC has not raised their rates since the original contract was established. Public Works would like to exercise the last one year extension per the contract from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022. All other conditions of the original agreement will remain the same.
Fiscal Impact: Estimated $32,292.00/year expenditure to the Public Works Operating Budget
Recommended Motion: Board to approve a one year extension to the contract with USIC LLC for underground utility locating services and authorize the Public Works Director to sign. Fiscal Impact to the Public Works Operating Budget is estimated to be $32,292.00 per year.
