grading and excavating work at other Boone County Properties.
Scope of Work – Provide labor and equipment to perform grading leveling and compacting of
surface rock and culvert work on the 4.2 miles of MKT trail and at other facilities owned by Boone
County Government. The County estimates that grading of the trail will be required two times per
year in the spring and in the fall. The County anticipates each occurrence to be approximately one to
two days in duration. Ditching and other related work will be on an as needed basis. These
estimates do not imply a guaranteed amount of work. The County will determine the frequency and
extent of the work and reserves the right to use other methods to accomplish the work as it deems
appropriate. The County will provide rock hauled by in-house staff or another vendor.
Contract Duration - The Term and Supply Contract period shall be from January 1, 2020 through
December 31, 2020 and may be automatically renewed for up to an additional four (4) one-year
periods unless canceled by the Purchasing Director in writing prior to a renewal term.
Contract Documents - The successful bidder(s) shall be obligated to enter into a written contract
with the County within thirty (30) days of award on contract forms provided by the County. If
bidders desire to contract under their own written agreement, any such proposed agreement shall be
submitted in blank with their bid. County reserves the right to modify any proposed form agreement
or withdraw its award to a successful bidder if any proposed agreement contains terms and
conditions inconsistent with its bid or are unacceptable to County legal counsel.

contract on a month-to-month basis for a maximum of 6 months from the date of the third contract
renewal period expiration if it is deemed to be in the best interest of Boone County.

consecutive workdays. Workdays planned to be consecutive but interrupted by weather, mechanical
breakdown, contractor scheduling conflicts, or other occurrences beyond the control of the County
will count as one event. Contractor shall bid a unit price per mile for mobilization. The County shall
calculate the mobilization fee for each piece of scheduled equipment by multiplying the contract rate
and the round-trip mileage from contractor’s shop to the job site. For purposes of this bid, contractor
shall indicate the round-trip mileage to the MKT trail terminus at McBaine. If the work site is
another County facility, the County shall calculate fees according to the bid unit price per mile and
actual round-trip mileage. Equipment may be stored overnight on site by prior arrangement with the

in use.
