A Resolution to Approve the Northwestern Regional Jail Authority to Enter into a Preliminary Design Agreement with Howard Shockey and Sons, Inc. for the Construction of a 96-Bed Housing Unit (“Third Pod”) and to Approve the Compensation of  Howard Shockey and Sons, Inc. for Actual Design Costs Plus 15% in the Event of Termination of the Project



Topic Description:

On May 12, 2005, the Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution authorizing the creation of the Northwestern Regional Jail Authority with the Counties of Clarke and Frederick and the City of Winchester.  The primary purpose for creation of the Authority was to provide a method to issue revenue bonds for financing of two construction projects:  a Community Corrections Center and a third, 96-bed pod, both of which had been previously approved by the localities. The Virginia Department of Corrections approved a 50% reimbursement of construction costs. 


A PPEA solicitation for proposals for the third pod closed April 29, 2005.  One proposal was received from Howard Shockey and Sons, Inc., the contractor that is also constructing the Community Corrections Center.  This resolution authorizes the Northwestern Regional Jail Authority to accept the Shockey proposal and to agree to compensate Shockey for all actual design costs, plus 15% should the project be terminated.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

In the event that the project is terminated, the Authority would be obligated to pay  Shockey and Sons, Inc., their actual design costs, plus 15%.  Fauquier County’s share of such costs would be 22.8% of the total.
