(Letter from City Manager to Mayor & City Council)
Mayor and City Council:
As indicated below, bids have been advertised for the East Naples Bay Dredging Project. As contractors were reviewing plans and the scope of services, it became apparent that proceeding with the bid opening and award of contract would raise the level of risk and uncertainty for this project. While it is unfortunate that the design engineer now believes a new survey is required to ascertain quantities to be removed by dredging, it is better to put this project and hold while we get this sorted out. The bid opening date is postponed until further notice. The project may be delayed for 60 days or so, depending on the course of action selected.
City of Naples
