Cubby Park is proposed to be bid as one large project with the project to be completed by November 2, 2018. There is an intermediate milestone to have the ball fields constructed and seeded by June 15 in order to establish the playing surface adequately to allow for use in the 2019 season. Also note there is a proposed 4-year maintenance bond (warranty) period for the entire project. Some individual items will have extended warranties depending on supplier/manufacturer.
The proposed schedule for bidding the project is as follows:
December 4 (regular meeting) – approve plans and specs; set dates for hearing and letting
December 5 – issue plans and specs to contractors (mail notices)
Publish notice between December 23 and December 28 (this will be a problem for the Times since they do not publish between Christmas and New Year’s; could publish in the Press-Citizen instead)
January 2 (regular meeting) – public hearing on plans and specs
January 11 – letting
January 15 (regular meeting) – review bids and award
