ST. PETERSBURG CITY COUNCIL Consent Agenda
Meeting of March 10, 2022

TO: The Honorable Gina Driscoll, Chair, and Members of City Council

FROM: Chris Ballestra, Managing Director, City Development Administration

SUBJECT: Accepting a bid from Thomas Sign and Awning Company to design, construct, deliver and install a new sign and foundation at the Sunken Gardens entrance, at a total cost of $138,233; authorizing the Mayor or his designee to execute all documents necessary to effectuate this transaction; approving a resolution rescinding unencumbered appropriations in the Recreation and Culture Capital Improvement Fund (3029) as follows: $110,000 from the Sunken Gardens Parking Lot Improvements FY22 Project (18636), $6,008 from the Coliseum Improvements FY18 Project (16165), and $22,225 from the Coliseum Waterproofing FY19 Project (16686); approving a supplemental appropriation from the increase in the unappropriated balance of the Recreation and Culture Capital Improvement Fund (3029), resulting from the above rescissions, in the amounts of $138,233 to the Sunken Gardens Main Sign Improvements Project (TBD); and providing an effective date.

EXPLANATION: This purchase is being made pursuant to St. Petersburg Ordinance Code, Chapter 2, Article V, Division 3, Section 2-202 – Exemptions.

Administration received a proposal from Thomas Sign and Awning Company on January 12, 2022.

Thomas Sign and Awning Company ……………….. $138,233

The Sunken Gardens iconic main sign, installed in 2003 and located at the 4th Street Entrance, suffered a structural failure last year requiring emergency action and partial tear-down. At the time of the original 2003 planning for the sign refurbishment and installation, the consulting engineers report stated, “an analysis of the steel support structure has not been conducted.” This steel support structure is what failed last year, requiring the partial tear-down at that time. The entire signage base is concealed in a planter “foundation.” The magnitude of the deterioration was recently fully identified leaving the remainder of the sign’s structural integrity in jeopardy. The remainder will be taken down with this project and an identical iconic designed sign with improved LED lighting and a new foundation will be installed.

Accordingly, Administration is requesting approval for use of the unused funds from the above noted capital improvement projects to be reallocated to the Sunken Gardens Main Sign Improvement Project ($138,233).

RECOMMENDATION: Administration recommends that City Council approve the attached resolution approving an award to Thomas Sign and Awning Company in the amount of $138,233 and the rescission of unencumbered appropriations in the Recreation and Culture Capital Improvement Fund (3029) as follows: $110,000 from the Sunken Gardens Parking Lot Improvements FY22 Project (18636), $6,008 from the Coliseum Improvements FY18 Project (16165), and $22,225 from the Coliseum Waterproofing FY19 Project (16686); approving a supplemental appropriation from the unappropriated balance of the Recreation and Culture Capital Improvement Fund (3029), resulting from the above rescissions, in the amount of

$138,233 to the Sunken Gardens Main Sign Improvements Project (TBD); and providing an effective date.

Cost/Funding/Assessment Information: Funds will be available after the approval of the following rescissions of unencumbered appropriations in the Recreation and Culture Capital Improvement Fund (3029): $110,000 from the Sunken Gardens Parking Improvements FY22 Project (18636), $6,008 from the Coliseum Improvements FY18 Project (16165), and $22,225 from the Coliseum Waterproofing FY19 Project (16686) and a supplemental appropriation from the increase in the unappropriated balance of the Recreation and Culture Capital Improvement Fund (3029), resulting from the above rescissions, in the amount of $138,233 to the Sunken Gardens Main Sign Improvements Project (TBD).
