Recommendation and Proposed Motion

Recommendation:  The Capital Projects $2 Surcharge Advisory Subcommittee recommends Council authorization to award contract to the lowest responsible and responsive bid in accordance with competitive bidding laws set forth in Chapter 338 of NRS in an amount not to exceed $120,000 and authorize the Mayor to sign the contracts.

 

Proposed Motion:  I move to approve staff recommendation.

Staff Report Formal Body

Summary:  The Capital Projects $2 Surcharge Advisory Subcommittee is requesting that Council authorize award of contract to the lowest responsible and responsive bid for the replacement of the revolving entry doorway with American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant doors at the main entrance of the National Bowling Stadium (NBS) in order to facilitate the completion of the replacement of the existing revolving doorway at the NBS his project before the Women’s Bowling Tournament held at the National Bowling Stadium in March 2018,

 

Previous Council Action:

August 23, 2017 - Council approved an agreement with MBA Architecture & Interior Design for the phased entry design services and the Stadium Level Refresh Conceptual planning in an amount not to exceed $120,000.

 

Discussion:  The National Bowling Stadium (NBS) located at 300 North Center Street was constructed in 1993.  The main entrance located on Center Street is a revolving entry door and is currently not in compliance with American with Disabilities Act (ADA).  This doorway will be replaced with an automatic sliding door system that is in compliance with ADA. Staff anticipates solicitation of bids in November 2017 with construction completion by end of February 2018.

 

Legal Implications: The surcharge of $2 must be used solely to pay the cost of improving and maintaining publicly owned facilities for tourism and entertainment in the district.  A two-thirds majority vote is required for approval.

 

Financial Implications: Funding for this project comes from the Room Surcharge Capital Projects Fund.

 

Meeting History

Nov 15, 2017 12:00 PM Video Reno City Council & Redevelopment Agency Board Joint Regular

A RECESS WAS CALLED AT 4:54 P.M. AND UPON RECONVENING AT 5:23 P.M. COUNCIL MEMBER DUERR AND MAYOR SCHIEVE WERE ABSENT. VICE MAYOR JARDON PRESIDED IN MAYOR SCHIEVE'S ABSENCE.

THIS ITEM WAS PULLED FOR DISCUSSION.

Cindy Carano, 550 West Plumb Lane, representing Eldorado Resorts, Inc., spoke in support of the project.

MAYOR SCHIEVE PRESENT AT 5:33 P.M.

Council Member Brekhus noted that they have not had a report on whether or not the bowlers have fulfilled their obligations as part of the agreement between the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) and the Reno Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority (RSCVA). She referenced a 2014 report prepared by the RSCVA recording certain things they would be performing and a checklist to confirm the bowlers have met their obligations. Council Member Brekhus stated she has been asking for that information and has not seen it yet.

Bill Thomas, Assistant City Manager, stated that staff contacted the RSCVA after hearing Council Member Brekhus’ request yesterday but they are on a retreat and unable to provide the requested information. There will be an annual report from the bowling stadium presented at the December 13, 2017, Council meeting. He also noted this item is for a contract for the design and not the actual expenditure for the work. Staff is working now to get consensus with the bowlers regarding what physical improvements have to be made to the National Bowling Stadium.

Mayor Schieve stated there has been nothing she has seen to indicate they are not fulfilling their contractual obligation.

Council Member Brekhus stated that she will not support the approval of this item. The December 2014 staff report outlines very specific things that were going to be reported on in the 2016 year and that is what she has been asking for. Getting a design firm on now is premature because we do not know if they are performing and meeting their obligations.

The Council upheld the staff recommendation.
