SUISUN CITY — Awarding the bid for the second phase of the Suisun Senior Center remodel, purchasing a Rake-O-Vac sweeper and returning four planning commissioners and two parks and recreation commissioners to their respective boards are on the Suisun City Council agenda.

The council meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday at 701 Civic Center Blvd.

City staff recommends that Melnikov Construction get the contract to finish the senior center remodel. The company bid $462,400 for the job, which includes a new kitchen and office, kitchen equipment, flooring, lighting fixtures, dry rot repair and exterior painting. The next closest bid was $481,421.

The work is being paid for by a $685,000 Community Development Block Grant. The first phase, a new roof, was completed in November 2012. The cost was $56,400.

The resolution to award the bid also authorizes the city manager to approve changes for contingencies as necessary for up to an additional $87,160. The budget, with contingency funds, is $550,000.

The council will also be asked to pass a resolution authorizing the purchase of a $35,000 Rake-O-Vac Sweeper. It will be used on the city’s bicycle paths, city parks, parking lots and more. The money is coming from the Recycling Container Grant Funds.

Mayor Pete Sanchez is expected to return Planning Commissioners Dennis Clemente, Evelyn Adeva, Anthony Ramos and Ken Holzwarth to the board, for another four-year term.

Current Parks and Recreation Commissioners Angel Borja and Roger Begley are expected to return to the board. Thomas Conley and Alipio Gacosta have been nominated to join them. Sanchez will make these appointments, too.
