August 26, 1971 Honorable Jay C. Sloan Mayor, City of Georgetown P. 0. Box 409 Georgetown, Texas 78626 lie: Waste Disposal Contract Project W13C-Tex-703 Dear Mayor Sloan: We acknowledge with appreciation your notification of August 24 of the City's approval of the subject contract and providing the other needed information. You are correct in the understanding that the Authority agrees to pay 25 percent of the cost of the project and that this amount will be 174 provided from the proceeds of the proposed bond issue. To assure that the Federally required 25 percent is provided it is proposed to base all calculations on the total project cost including such items as may not be eligible for Federal grant participation. It is also suggested that the contingency figure used in estimating total project costs be a liberal one. These suggestions are intended to protect the City, since any unused funds apply to the benefit of the City. In a telephone conversation of August 25 Mr. Wood verified that the City still plans to open bids on the project August 30. We will appreciate receiving as soon as possible a copy of the EPA "Part B" and the City's final decision as to the purchaser or purchases of the bonds. We will then submit for the City's formal action the completed contract and bond resolution in accordance with steps 6 and 7 as listed in our letter of August 11. May we specifically point out that the proceeds from the bond sale will not be available until November 1 at the earliest. unless the City has funds on hand with which to provide interim financing, care should be taken as to how soon the construction contract is executed so that the City will not be faced with payments due the contractor before the money is available. The cooperation which the City has extended in this matter has been excellent and is very much appreciated. We sincerely hope that our actions and coordination have been as good as yours, and trust that the entire ma- tter will be completed to the satisfaction and benefit of the City. PHP: nd cc: Paul B.
