A Resolution to Approve a Contract with American Tennis Courts, Inc. to Renovate Playcourts at Various Recreational Sites

Topic Description:

As part of the Parks and Recreation Department's ongoing maintenance program, and based on industry standards, outdoor courts should be renovated every 10 years.  The majority of courts in the County have not been renovated within this time period.  The courts in most need of repair include Marshall Middle School tennis courts, Cedar Lee Middle School tennis courts, Vint Hill Village Green tennis courts, and the playcourts at Bradley Elementary School.  Parks and Recreation has previously worked with a contractor, American Tennis Courts, Inc., which is under an open-ended contract with Fairfax County to perform this type of work, to repair courts at Pearson Elementary, Pierce Elementary, and Cedar Lee Middle.  The contract is available to other governments in northern Virginia, including Fauquier County.  This contract and the scope of work outlined on the enclosures will be used for the purchase order/contract.  The proposed contract work includes resurfacing each of these courts, with a more sophisticated system proposed for Vint Hill due to the severity of deterioration of the current surface, replacement of tennis court fencing at Marshall Middle and Cedar Lee Middle, and reapplication of game and educational stencils at Bradley.  The cost of the work is detailed in the enclosed attachments provided by American Tennis Courts, Inc. 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.
