Strategic Priority

Recommend approval to authorize the City Manager to execute a contract with Johnson-Laux Construction for various improvements at Atwood Park in the amount of $241,286.46.  This SPLOST-funded project includes construction of a new pervious basketball court, pervious walkways, ADA parking and landscaping.

The State of Georgia’s job order contract will be used to perform this project to meet time constraints and City ordinance requirements. The State of Georgia’s job order contract is considered a convenience contract that is available for use by all State, City, and County public entities. The purpose of this contract is to provide multi-trade general construction services to accomplish small to medium sized projects for repair, alteration, modernization, rehabilitation, and minor new construction to infrastructure, buildings, structures, or other real property. The State of Georgia used a competitive bidding procedure to select Johnson-Laux Construction to serve as the sole provider of these services for this region. This Georgia State contract was awarded with a contract term of July 21, 2017 through July 20, 2020.

The Office of Business Opportunity coordinated with the State Contractor, Johnson-Laux Construction and established a 20% DBE goal with 10% being from local DBE firms.  Johnson-Laux Construction has been deemed compliant with this goal.
