Patrick Brown, Purchasing Director
Consideration and Approval of Contract:
Approve Amendment One of the Professional Services Contract with Arizona Water Buffalo, LLC with additional compensation not to exceed $57,465 for a total contract amount of $107,415 for Water Services Consulting Services.
STAFF RECOMMENDED ACTION:
Approve Amendment One of the Professional Services Contract with Arizona Water Buffalo, LLC with additional compensation not to exceed $57,465 for a total contract amount of $107,415 for Water Services Consulting Services; and
Authorize the City Manager to execute the necessary documents.
The Water Services Director position became vacant on May 27, 2022. The City selected Andy Bertelsen as an internal interim Water Resources Director, but also entered into a Professional Services Contract for Water Services Consulting Services with Brad Hill of Arizona Water Buffalo, LLC for subject matter consultation. Andy Bertelsen left City employment and the City hired Arizona Water Buffalo, LLC, Brad Hill, under the Professional Services Contract as a Water Services Executive Consultant to act as the Interim Water Services Director during the recruiting process with an outside Executive Recruiter. Brad Hill was hired as a direct result of his intimate knowledge and experience with the City's water programs, facilities, needs and processes.
Amendment One is needed to cover the additional time that services are needed due to the longer than anticipated recruitment, and to assist the City with a transition to a new Water Services Director resulting from the recruitment.
City staff will use available salary savings and budget capacity to cover this additional $57,465 expense.
This Amendment One would not impact any City policies.
