Section 1.              Recitals.

The Village’s Capital Improvement Plan and Annual Budget for FY 2018/19 includes funding for the reconstruction of Anthony Trail between Commercial Avenue and Macarthur Boulevard due to its significantly deteriorated condition. As part of this, this segment will be completely reconstructed with new concrete pavement. Bid packages were prepared by Public Works Department staff and contained detailed plans and specifications for the rehabilitation of Anthony Trail. Fourteen bid packages were purchased and thirteen bid proposals were received. The lowest responsive and responsible bid proposal was submitted by A Lamp Concrete Contractors of Schaumburg, Illinois (“Contractor”) in the amount of $345,465.

Based on these factors, staff recommends entering into a contract with the Contractor in the amount of $345,465 (“Contract”) for the Project. A contingency of 10% is also requested to cover any work associated with unforeseen conditions during final design and construction of the Project for a total not to exceed expenditure of $379,965.


The President and the Board of Trustees have considered the Contract and determined that it is in the best interests of the Village and the public to enter into the Contract.



Section 2.           Approval of Contract.


The Contract is approved in a form acceptable to the Village Attorney and the Village Manager.

              Section 4.              Authorization to Execute Change Orders.
