Juneau Associates’ renewal for engineering services contract was approved Aug. 4 at the City Council meeting.
GRANITE CITY — Juneau Associates’ agreement to provide professional engineering and land surveying services to Granite City was renewed at the City Council meeting on Aug. 4.
The new agreement will expire on Aug. 31, 2016.
“We’re really pleased to renew our agreement and continue our relationship with them (Granite City),” Juneau Associates Vice President Joe Juneau said.
According to the agreement, Juneau will perform professional engineering and land services for an amount not to exceed $500,000. Juneau also will direct the preparation of an infrastructure budget and master plan and the interpretation of traffic facilities, building, sewer, street and other public work studies; coordinate consultant and contract engineering services relating to public works and advise the city administration on public works contracts, engineering designs, plans and studies.
Also, a resolution was approved for the 2015 Motor Fuel Tax HMS Surfacing & Slurry Seal Program, the city’s road maintenance program. The estimated program cost is $335,000.
“The city motor fuel tax account is the funding source that they use to do asphalt overlays and slurry seals on the roadways,” Juneau said. “The city develops a list of streets that is wished to be done each year and then they have to program the money for that motor fuel tax account. With that agreement (approved by the City Council on Aug. 4), it set aside for $335,000 for this year’s program.”
Juneau, incorporated 35 years ago to offer professional engineering, land surveying and construction management services, has its headquarters on State Street. The company also has offices in Edwardsville, St. Louis and Chicago.
