Background and Discussion:
As of August 15, 2021, the contractor has experienced a total of 65 inclement weather days. The contract
provides for 36 days of inclement weather and the contractor has met the minimum threshold to request
additional time. HCFCD Construction recommends an additional 29 days be added to the contract
duration. No additional funding is necessary for this extension of contract duration.

Expected Impact:
This RCA is required in order to complete the District construction contract under original or needed
revised scope. Timely execution is appreciated in order to mitigate any potential delays from the
contractor.

Alternative Options:
This is an active construction contract, so there are not many alternatives to approving a change order
other than cancelling the contract which is not recommended as doing so would substantially delay the
remaining work in the construction contract.

Alignment with Goal(s):
_ Justice and Safety
_ Economic Opportunity
_ Housing
_ Public Health
_ Transportation
X Flooding
_ Environment
_ Governance and Customer Service
