During its Feb. 22 meeting, the Brentwood City Commission approved a nearly $250,000 contract with TMPartners to oversee final design and construction for the Fire Station No. 5, allowing the city to move onto the next phase of the project.
The city initially approved an agreement with the firm to complete a needs assessment and schematic drawings last August. The latest agreement will allow the company to begin work on the final design, construction bidding and construction administration for the project, according to the city.
Funding for the contract will come from the city's capital projects fund, according to city documents.
"We’ve got sufficient funds in this year’s capital budget to begin that work, and then the [capital improvements plan] that [the commission] will have for adoption next year will carry with it the construction funding at that time," City Manager Kirk Bednar said during the meeting.
The total budget for the project is estimated to cost $4.5 million, not including a new apparatus for the station, according to the city.
A construction start date for the new station has not yet been announced.
