RESOLUTION NO. 769
A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON, AWARDING A CONTRACT TO R.L. RHINE, INC. IN THE AMOUNT OF $92,672 FOR DEMOLITION AND REMOVAL OF THE STRUCTURES ON UNIVERSITY PLACE TOWN CENTER LOT 12
WHEREAS, University Place Town Center Lot 12 is the only parcel in Town Center not currently under contract to Verus Partners or any other developer; and
WHEREAS, the City cannot predict when the existing structures may be demolished for redevelopment; and
WHEREAS, the vacant structures on Lot 12 do not meet Code, cannot be brought up to Code without a large expenditure of funds that could not be recovered in interim rent, and consequently leasing in the interim is not economically feasible; and
WHEREAS, in spite of constant efforts to secure the existing structures, they are being accessed for unlawful activities; and
WHEREAS, the existing structures have become a public safety hazard, a drain on resources, and a liability risk for the City; and
WHEREAS, the Council has previously reviewed this issue and allocated $100,000 in eligible LRF bond proceeds for the demolition; and
WHEREAS, the City sought bids to demolish the existing structures, with R.L. Rhine, Inc., submitting the low bid of $92,672, which is within the budgeted amount.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON:
Section 1. Approval of Bid Award. The City Council hereby approves the award of a contract to R.W. Rhine, Inc. in the amount of $92,672 for demolition and removal of the structures on University Place Town Center Lot 12.
