City Receives Construction Bids for Mudflow Debris Cleanup

Post Date:08/23/2019 12:00 PM

The City of Sausalito has received bids from seven contractors on a project to remove debris from the site of the mudflow that struck the Hurricane Gulch neighborhood on February 14, 2019. The City anticipates awarding the contract to the lowest qualified bidder by early next week, with the actual debris removal to start in September.

Bids for the debris removal project ranged from $850,000 to $1,830,000. The low bid was submitted by Resource Environmental, Inc. of Long Beach, California, a firm with a good reputation for demolition removal. City staff has determined the low bid to be responsive to the bid documents and is recommending that the contract be awarded to Resource Environmental.

The City also is also considering the award of a contract of $858,749.29 to Harris & Associates of Concord, California, for construction administration and technical and administrative assistance related to the debris cleanup. Harris & Associates has expertise on the procedures required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES). Under a previous contract, Harris & Associates served as an advisor to the City in the development of bid documents.

The City is in the process of reaching out to property owners affected by the mudflow in order to move the project forward. Meetings are being scheduled to discuss debris removal on private property and the process for identifying and separating personal property, among other topics. Renters affected by the mudslide will also be contacted about the process for recovering personal property. 

When available, details on a start date for debris removal will be published in Sausalito Currents and on the City website. Work is expected to take place Monday through Saturday between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. in order that the project can be completed before the rainy season. Residents of Hurricane Gulch should expect a significant amount of noise, as well as impacts to traffic circulation and parking.
