Listed below is information regarding Addendum No. 2 for the Gopher Tank Replacement Project.  Please take note that the bid opening date has been extended to Friday, May 8th, 2020.

The pre-bid meeting for this project remains scheduled for April 17th at 10 a.m. at the new water tank site off of Shaws Flat Road (nearest address is 1365 Shaws Flat Road).  Follow the gravel driveway to the top of the hill.  Access the gravel driveway by traveling southbound on Shaws Flat Road.  The driveway is accessible going northbound but it is a much harder turn to make, especially if you are traveling in a truck.  This is a mandatory meeting and only companies represented at the pre-bid meeting will be eligible to bid the project.  Due to the COVID 19 pandemic and recent guidelines from the State, we will be practicing social distancing on-site and maintaining at least 6 feet away from each other.  Please bring your own pen to sign the sign-in sheet.  Feel free to wear masks, gloves, or any other personal protective equipment that you would like. See the notice link listed below.

Addendum No. 1 Notice – Posted March 23, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Governor’s shelter-in-place order, the mandatory pre-bid conference has been rescheduled for a later date.  The bid opening date has remained unchanged.  In the event that the shelter-in-place order extends through April, a subsequent addendum will be issued and mandatory pre-bid conference will be held remotely.

NOTE: CDBG Documents

Although the mandatory pre-bid conference has been rescheduled, please remember that there are still DBE Requirements for this project that need to be completed.  Please do not wait for the pre-bid conference to complete these requirements as some items are time sensitive.  For CDBG related questions, please contact Terry Cox at (209) 533‑8810 or cox_consulting@sbcglobal.net. Please read the Addendum No.1 Notice below, sign and include it in your bid proposal.
