ASSEMBLY AGENDA/MANAGER'S REPORT
THE CITY AND BOROUGH OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

Ordinance 2020-09(AZ) An Ordinance Transferring $500,000 from CIP P47-073 Centennial Hall Renovation Phase 2 to CIP F21-041 Downtown/Glacier Fire Stations Mechanical and Electrical Upgrades.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

This ordinance would transfer $500,000 from the Centennial Hall Renovation CIP to the Downtown/Glacier Fire Stations Mechanical and Electrical Upgrades CIP.  The $500,000 to be transferred was provided on a short-term basis to the Centennial Hall Renovation CIP to complete the project design.  The $500,000 would be transferred to the Fire Station Mechanical and Electrical Upgrades CIP to install ground source heat pump (GSHP) loop fields at the Downtown and Valley fire stations. The additional funding is needed to upgrade the heat system from air source to ground source after a study determined the GSHP to provide the best long-term heating solution at the two fire stations. The study found the life cycle costs of the two options similar but the ground source heat system offered redundancy in the form of an electric boiler that the air source system did not provide. 

 

This request was reviewed by the Public Works and Facilities Committee at its meeting on May 10, 2021.

RECOMMENDATION:

The City Manager recommends the Assembly introduce this ordinance and set it for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.
