OLD BUSINESS

There was no Old Business.

NEW BUSINESS

J.1. Resolution Amending the Sale Listing Agreement with CBRE, Inc for the Sale of 3525 U.S. Highway 34. Resolution No. 19-R-08

Director Cole addressed the Board regarding an amended sale listing agreement. In February of last year, the Village entered into an agreement with CBRE to represent the Village in the marketing and sale of the old Police Station. The agreement was in effect for a year and expired on February 21st, 2019. A resolution was drafted for consideration of an amendment to extend the agreement for another year. The broker fee remains set at 6% of the sale price, which is in line with industry standards. During the last year, CBRE has marketed the building with 34 email marketing blasts, individual outreach and in other formats. The site has been shown to five interested parties and continue to have interest on the site.

It is a difficult site, given that it is a former police station with a jail that would need to be renovated for most other uses. The limited parking can be a challenge to certain uses that require more. CBRE has done a good job in representing the Village’s interests and marketing the site.

Board and staff discussion focused other marketing plans; individual outreach; best suited to a local entity; unique site; good success with CBRE versus another broker; no complaints with CBRE;

CBRE contacts staff frequently; would like to hear about site visits in the weekly report; whether there are any measurables; will take someone thinking out of the box for the use of the site; what else can staff be doing to update the Board throughout the year. There was no further discussion.

A motion was made by Trustee Kauffman and seconded by Trustee Perez to approve a Resolution Amending the Sale Listing Agreement with CBRE, Inc for the Sale of 3525 U.S. Highway 34.

Aye: Ryan Kauffman Karin McCarthy-Lange

Chief Burgner addressed the Board regarding change orders for the new Police Headquarters. Currently, the two boilers and two hot water heaters exhaust flu gases through ductwork out the Woolley Road side of the building. Once both systems became operational, police department and Gilbane Building Company staff noticed a large amount of moisture building up on the south elevation of the first and second floor which was caused by the hot moist air exhausting from the boilers and hot water heaters. It was also determined that the flu gases were not properly exhausting the building causing the system to not function properly. Police department and Gilbane Building Company staff immediately notified HOK of the issue. HOK and their subcontracted engineering firm assessed the issues and agreed that there was a design issue with the location of the exhaust ducts as well as the functionality. The HVAC contractor, with input from Gilbane and HOK, was able to create a temporary mitigation plan to ensure one boiler would function while addressing the flu gas issue. HOK provided a redesign of the boiler and hot water heater exhaust ducts that required them to be run through the building to the roof. They vetted this approach and determined that this solution would address both issues. Once redesign drawings were issued, Gilbane Building Company obtained pricing from the trades that were affected by the redesign.

Village staff engaged HOK in conversations regarding the cost for the labor and materials for the redesign of the boiler and hot water heater exhaust. HOK has committed, in writing, that they will cover the cost of the labor and materials for the trade contractors to complete the work. Those cost are as follows:

Trade Work

Cost

Steel

$5,089.00

Roofing

$4,278.43

Metal Panels

$16,566.94

Drywall

$1,974.00

Flooring

$811.00

HV AC

$42,013.51

Electrical

$2,533.75

Total

$73,266.63

HOK is still in discussions with the subcontracted engineering firm and Gilbane Building Company regarding Gilbane Building Company fees and labor for managing the construction of this redesign work.

Board and staff discussion focused on Gilbane will oversee the work and HOK will reimburse the Village; there may be another change order in the future; Steve Raasch has been helpful. There was no further discussion.

A motion was made by Trustee Perez and seconded by Trustee McCarthy-Lange to approve a Resolution Authorizing Gilbane Building Company to Execute Change Order #OCO-0004 to the Steel Contract with Lenex Steel Company in an Amount not to Exceed $5,089.00; approve a Resolution Authorizing Gilbane Building Company to Execute Change Order #OCO-0004 to the Roofing Contract with Sterling Roofing in an Amount not to Exceed $4,278.43; approve a Resolution Authorizing Gilbane Building Company to Execute Change Order #OCO-0004 to the Metal Panel Contract with Bennett & Brosseau Inc. in an Amount not to Exceed $16,566.94; approve a Resolution Authorizing Gilbane Building Company to Execute Change Order #OCO-0004 to the Drywall Contract with Champion Drywall Inc. in an Amount not to Exceed $1,974.00; approve a Resolution Authorizing Gilbane Building Company to Execute Change Order #OCO-004 to the Electrical Contract with Excel Electric Inc. in an Amount not to Exceed $2,533.75; approve a Resolution Authorizing Gilbane Building Company to Execute Change Order #OCO-0004 to the HVAC Contract with C.
