ITEM 113-2001-R1101    Increase Authorization for Improvement and Repair of Parking Lots at Montana State University-Bozeman

 

THAT:                           Consistent with the provisions of MCA 18-2-102, the Board of Regents of Higher Education authorizes Montana State University-Bozeman to improve and repair parking lots and streets at Montana State University-Bozeman.  This request is to increase the previous authority by an additional $175,000, for a total authority of $1,175,000.

 

EXPLANATION:            1.         In September 1999, the Board of Regents approved $1,000,000 in authority to allow MSU-Bozeman to improve and repair parking lots and streets.  Various projects have been designed, bid and executed and are now close to completion.

 

2.                   These projects, repairs, maintenance, replacements, and student safety enhancements such as improved lighting, incurred marginal unforeseen additional costs which represent project contingency items such as relocating the West Hedges parking access to better serve the new residence halls, additional structural base preparations, storm drainage modifications required by the City Planning Dept, and an access extension to better serve the Molecular Beam facility.

 

3.                   These projects were financed with Parking System revenues.
