City Council Regular Meeting
Meeting Date: 06/07/2022  

BACKGROUND
In an effort to meet citizen needs and department workloads, the City contracted with BB Inspections. Over the years the inspection and plan review services provided by BB Inspections has allowed the City the ability to provide a timely inspection and plan review service to citizens and builders. 

This fiscal year the City has spent approximately $40,000 with BB Inspections for inspection and plan review services.  Over the fiscal year the department has had staff out on medical leave, position vacancies, another contract plan review provider retire and the implementation of a software project which has resulted in an increase in services with BB Inspections. 

For the remainder of the fiscal year, the Inspections Division anticipates spending up to the amount authorized in the budget for inspection services with BB Inspections in accordance with the agreement. The City’s practice is to seek authorization from Council when expenditures with a vendor exceed $50,000 in one fiscal year. 

BB Inspections was procured via the Professional Services exemption allowed in Local Government Code. The initial agreement contained a not to exceed amount of $49,000.00 however given the above circumstances, we are amending the agreement to allow for additional expenditures in accordance with the Fee Schedule.
