City considering engineering services contract

CRESTVIEW — The City Council is seeking proposals for an engineering design consulting firm.

The selected firm would supplement, as needed, the Public Works Department's in-house engineers on major, more technical projects.

City Clerk Betsy Roy on Monday requested the board's permission to seek a request-for-proposals, or RFP, for architectural drawings of Twin Hills Park improvements.

A continuing professional services agreement with an engineering design firm would be necessary, city attorney Jerry Miller said. The CRA could then use the firm's services for Twin Hills Park design plans.

Refined drawings would expound on a preliminary plan that city planner Eric Davis presented at the April 14 CRA meeting.

Davis' recommendations include a linear park connecting the Main Street district with Twin Hills, an amphitheater, a boat house for pedal boats and canoes, a dog park, a skate park and a near-replica of the Crestview Depot.

Councilwoman Robyn Helt moved to approve the RFP, provided plans wouldn't be executed until the company confirmed proposed improvements' feasibility.
