City taps Preble Rish to manage lighthouse move

Magidson said, “We don’t intend to saddle taxpayers with any of this.”

Kennedy suggested that Preble Rish and city staff agree on a scope of services for the project manager, using in large measure the Request for Proposals the city had begun advertising.

He said any scope of services should include a provision that the Commission has final say on subcontractors.

“We have to have some control over it and full knowledge,” Magidson said.

Gibson noted that the physical moving of the lighthouse, by its nature in size and expense, would be bid out under normal bid procedures in any circumstances.

He added that any items or services above the city’s $5,000 threshold that triggers a requirement for bidding would also be bid as usual.

Small items and services below that threshold, he said, Preble Rish could perform.
