Contracts Over $100,000
Four contracts over the amount of $100,000 were awarded by Town Council: 

1. A professional services agreement with Stanley Consulting, Inc. in the amount of $172,218 for the final design of the Mainstreet North Sidewalk project (Victorian Drive to the eastern boundary of Town & Country Village Townhomes). This project, which will be funded by the Parker Authority for Reinvestment, will replace the existing narrow 5-ft brick paver sidewalk with a 12-ft concrete section with trees and pedestrian lighting to match the existing sidewalks along the downtown area. The new sidewalk section will be ADA compliant and create a user-friendly route for pedestrians and bikes.

2. A professional services agreement with Felsburg, Holt & Ullevig in the amount of $130,544 for the conceptual/preliminary design of the Dransfeldt Road Widening Project (Mainstreet to Pony Express Drive). Due to continued and projected traffic increases, widening of Dransfeldt Road with an additional southbound lane between Lincoln Avenue and Mainstreet is needed. The first phase of this project, between Mainstreet and Pony Express Drive, is anticipated to be constructed in 2023.

3. A contract modification with Vance Brothers, Inc. in the amount of $1,824,610.34 for revisions to the 2021 Townwide Slurry/Chip Seal Program. Through cost savings realized during the 2021 resurfacing program, there are additional funds remaining in the budget that will allow the Town to provide micro-surface pavement preservation treatment to five additional Town collectors during the 2021 budget year (Carlson Drive, Wintergreen Parkway, Scenic Park Drive, Pine Bluffs Way and Cockriel Drive).

4. A professional services agreement with Stanley Consulting, Inc. in the amount of $137,370 for construction management and material testing services for the Downtown Circulation Improvements Project. This project, scheduled to begin this fall, will add pedestrian safety and circulation improvements on Victorian Drive and Mainstreet in the downtown area, including a traffic signal at the Mainstreet/Victorian Drive (west) intersection.
