Maclean Cres. contract awarded

Cache Creek Council awards consulting contract for Maclean Cres. Reconstruction to McElhanney Consulting Services.

The Village of Cache Creek awarded the consulting contract for the Maclean Crescent Reconstruction project to McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd. for $93,881 at its March 24 meeting.

McElhanney was the second highest bid of the eight proposals submitted for the work, and prices ranged from $119,800  (Pink Umbrella Consulting) to $29,044 (Onsite Engineering Ltd.).

Administrator Dan Plamondon defended his recommended choice, saying that the selection committee evaluated not only price, but other criteria, including ability and past experience.

Mayor John Ranta added that McElhanney was the consultant on the Mclean Dr. reconstruction project and it worked out well from a consultant point of view.

The Request for Proposals (RFP) was issued with the statement that “The Village of Cache Creek considers that “best value” is an essential part of engaging a service provider and therefore the Village… considers that it offers great value and better serves the Village of Cache Creek’s interests.”

The consultant is responsible for the planning, design and contract administration for the project, which the Village hopes to undertake this year.
