City Hires Firm to Develop Strategy for Mudslide Debris

Tentative Cleanup Schedule Released

Post Date:04/12/2019 4:15 PM

On Monday, April 8, the City of Sausalito entered into a professional services contract with Harris & Associates of Concord, California, to assist the City in developing a recovery strategy for the mudslide that took place on February 14, 2019. The recovery strategy will include scope, schedule, and cost estimates for debris removal, infrastructure design, permitting, construction, and financing. The project manager for Harris & Associates is Eric Vaughn, who recently managed a similar project for the Paradise Irrigation District in the aftermath of the Camp Fire in the fall of 2018.
A tentative project schedule was included with the contract, with the caveat that, "flexibility in [the] implementation schedule should be anticipated due to site conditions, stakeholder engagement, FEMA and Cal OES responsiveness, responsiveness to RFPs for contractors, weather, and other variables." The tentative schedule is as follows:
  • April 2019: Develop recovery strategy
  • May and June 2019: Create debris removal plan
  • July to September 2019: Remove debris
  • November and December 2019: Complete project, submit requests for reimbursement to state and federal agencies
The April 8 contract with Harris and Associates covers only the development of a recovery strategy. The City of Sausalito expects to enter into additional contracts with Harris & Associates and other firms as we move through the cleanup process.
