|DATE:||May 8, 2019|
|SUBJECT:||REFERRAL TO THE MAY 31, 2019 FINANCE AND CITYWIDE PROJECTS COMMITTEE REGARDING CAPITAL APPROPRIATIONS FOR HVAC REPLACEMENT AT BOTANICAL GARDENS DUE TO RISK OF FAILURE.|
|Administration has requested a referral to the Finance and Citywide Projects Committee in order to identify funding options for the proposed Capital Renewal and Replacement (CR&R) project. |
The Miami Beach Botanical Garden air conditioning units were slated to be replaced during fiscal year 2020 as part of the Capital Renewal and Replacement program. The air conditioning units, due to both their location and use have reached the end of their useful life. To date the units have failed twice, once on March 29, 2019 and April 15, 2019. Administration recommends the units be replaced during this fiscal year prior to the summer months to avoid an emergency replacement of the units and the additional costs associated with these risks. Proposals for the work have been requested under an existing City contract in the sum of $68,100.00.
Administration seeks that the Mayor and Commission to approve referral to the Finance and Citywide Projects Committee (FCWPC) in order to identify funding options and complete the proposed Capital Renewal and Replacement (CR&R) project.
