City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 01/22/2019  

SUBJECT:
AUTHORIZE THE EXECUTION OF AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO AGREEMENT NO. A2016-046 WITH LEATHERMAN BIOCONSULTING, INC.
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize the execution of Amendment No. 1 to Agreement No. A2016-046 with Leatherman BioConsulting, Inc. extending the contract expiration date to January 30, 2021 and increase the not-to-exceed amount of $98,753.16 by $96,949.40 for a revised total of $195,702.56.
BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
On March 8, 2016 the City Council of the City of Chino Hills, authorized the execution of an agreement with Leatherman BioConsulting, Inc. to administer and implement the Mitigation Monitoring Plan (MMP) and the Habitat Mitigation Monitoring Plan (HMMP) for the Vila Borba project.
 
The Mitigation Monitoring Plan requires that a biological monitor conducts a field investigation throughout construction and the City anticipates that construction and revegetation of habitat within the Vila Borba Master Plan area will continue for an additional 24 months. The additional monitoring resulted in an update to the scope of work and increased the not-to-exceed amount by $96,949.40 for a revised total of $195,702.56.
ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:
This action of approving 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.  It will not result in any direct or indirect physical change in the environment because it is only a preliminary action required in order to study the proposed project. 
FISCAL IMPACT:
There is sufficient funding in the TDA Pass Thru Fund budget to cover the Fiscal Year 2018/19 cost of the Leatherman BioConsulting, Inc. contract. All costs for this contract will be reimbursed by the developer and there is no impact on the General Fund.
 
REVIEWED BY OTHERS:
This item has been reviewed by Finance Director and City Clerk.
