    17.    
City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 06/26/2018  

SUBJECT:
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH MICHAEL BAKER INTERNATIONAL, INC., FOR REPRESENTATION AT MEETINGS RELATED TO WATER AND SEWER AND ENGINEERING SERVICES.
RECOMMENDATION:
Find that the exception to competitive bidding procedures under Chino Hills Municipal Code Section 3.18.050.D applies because Michael Baker International, Inc. personnel (formerly RBF Consulting) has demonstrated competence, qualifications for the types of services to be performed, experience and knowledge of the City due to a long-standing relationship.

Authorize the execution of a one-year Professional Services Agreement with four, one-year renewal options with Michael Baker International, Inc. for $175,000 annually and a total amount not-to-exceed $875,000 for representation at Water and Sewer meetings and Engineering services.
BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
The City is a member agency to the Chino Basin Watermaster and Inland Empire Utilities Agency. Both of these agencies have regular meetings which require the expertise, knowledge, and history of the City of Chino Hills, Chino Basin, surrounding agencies; as well as expertise in water and sewer issues.
 
Michael Baker International, Inc. (MBI)  personnel have been involved with the City since incorporation. Their unique knowledge and professional expertise related to Chino Basin Watermaster and Inland Empire Utilities Agency has continued to be beneficial to the City.
ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:
This action of approving a contract is not a project within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act (California Public Resources Code §§21000, et seq.,  “CEQA”) and CEQA Guidelines (Title 14 California Code of Regulations §§15000, et seq.) Section 15378 and is therefore exempt from CEQA.
 
FISCAL IMPACT:
There is sufficient funding in the Water Utility and Sewer Utility Professional Services operating budgets to cover the Fiscal Year 2018-19 cost of the Michael Baker International, Inc. agreement.  Future agreement costs will be budgeted for in the appropriate fiscal year.  There is no impact to the General Fund with this item.
