AN ORDINANCE ACCEPTING BIDS AND AUTHORIZING CONTRACT UW21-08-33 – APPLIED CHANNEL REPAIR WITH PLOCHER CONSTRUCTION COMPANY, INC. IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $159,941.00, FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES
This ordinance accepts Contract UW21-08-33 in an amount not to exceed $159,941.00, with Plocher Construction Company, Inc. (“Plocher”), for the repair of the Applied Channel and Applied Channel Junction Structure for the Water Plant. The Applied Channel was installed in 1934 with the construction of the Filter Plant and is used to move the water from the clarification process to the filtration process. The Applied Channel is a critical asset in the water treatment process. Over the years, settlement and subbase washout has led to joint separation and created a leak at the Applied Box structure. This leak was temporarily repaired in the spring of 2020, but it requires a permanent restoration. The Applied Channel will need to have its subgrade reestablished through pressure grouting, and the connection to the Applied Box structure will need to be fortified. An interior lining of the Applied Channel will need to be applied to help reduce the chances of future leaks. Plocher was the only bidder on this contract. They are not a local vendor.

This is a standard ordinance for ethernet service from the City’s fiber optic telecommunications system. This ordinance authorizes the City to provide telecommunications service to the University of Illinois Board of Trustees on behalf of the University of Illinois, Springfield (“UIS”), in exchange for payment by UIS to the City in an estimated amount of $25,200.00 over three years. The Office of Public Utilities has a fiber optic telecommunications system. It has been granted certificates of service authority with the Illinois Commerce Commission to provide facilities-based exchange telecommunications services in Sangamon County and interexchange telecommunications services within Illinois. The City’s network can provide WAN (wide area network) services across the system. This allows computers to pass data between remote facilities at speeds as fast as in the local buildings. This technology allows for the consolidation of computers, servers, and the required network equipment and enhances the capabilities of the facilities. UIS has requested a 100 Mbps connection from their Health & Science Building located at the UIS Main Campus (2295 William Maxwell Lane) to their Innovate Springfield facility at 15 South Old State Capitol Plaza. UIS will pay $700 per month for the three-year term of the contract for this service. The connection will be done by utilizing existing fiber and communication infrastructure at the two facilities. UIS may elect to terminate this agreement at any time without cause, provided that UIS shall thereupon pay the remaining monthly charges for the remainder of the 3-year contract.
