6. Pollution Control. Under the Clean Air Act and promulgated National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), Asbestos was designated a hazardous air pollutant, and standards were set for its use and control. Demolition of certain buildings and structures was determined to be a significant source of asbestos emissions. Contractors are required under Section 114(a) of the Clean Air Act to allow EPA personnel to freely enter facilities or demolition sites, review records, inspect any demolition method, and sample or observe any omissions. All demolition must be undertaken in compliance with the applicable provisions of the Clean Air Act and 40 C.F.R. Section 61.22(d). The Successful Bidder is responsible for compliance with NESHAP. The Successful Bidder shall complete and submit “Notification of Intent to Renovate or Demolish” form to the NESHAP Asbestos Program of Missouri’s Air Pollution Control Program and provide a copy to the Presiding Commissioner. Missouri law requires notifications to be submitted at least 10 working days in advance of the project start date. Asbestos inspection has already occurred. A copy of the inspection report is attached. The Contractor shall be responsible for proper abatement including but not limited to proper removal and disposal of all materials containing asbestos, all in compliance with federal and state law. The County’s preference is for the Contractor to be qualified to perform any needed asbestos removal and disposal, but the County will consider a bid with this scope of work being performed by a subcontractor.

7. Contract Execution. The bidder to whom the Contract is awarded shall, within five (5) business days after the notice of award, enter into a written contract with the County. Failure to execute a contract will be considered abandonment of the award, the County shall have no further obligation to that bidder, and the County may retain the bid bond.

8. Bid Security. Each bid must be accompanied by a bid bond payable to the County for five percent (5%) of the total amount of the bid. A certified check made payable to “Cass County Treasurer” may be used in lieu of a bid bond. Attorneys-in-fact who sign bid bonds must file with each bond a certified and effectively dated copy of their power of attorney. As soon as the bid prices have been compared, the County will return the bonds of all except the three (3) lowest responsible bidders. The bid bond of the remaining bidders will be retained by the County until the earlier of (a) the 91st day after the bid opening, or (b) execution and delivery of the Agreement together with all bonds, evidence of insurance, work authorization affidavit and other documents required under the Agreement by the bidder to whom Notice of Award is given. The Bid Security shall be forfeited to the County if the bidder to whom an award is made fails to enter into the required contract or fails to deliver the required documentation, such as bonds.

9. Liquidated Damages for Failure to Enter into Agreement. If the Bidder fails or refuses to execute the Agreement and deliver such additional documentation within five (5) business days of Notice of Award, any Bid Security shall immediately become due and payable and forfeited to the County as liquidated damages. Bidders agree that this is a fair and reasonable approximation of the actual damages incurred by the County for the Bidder’s failure to honor its bid and that the liquidated damages in this Section are not penal in nature but rather the parties’ attempt to fairly quantify the actual damages incurred by the County for the Bidder’s refusal to honor its bid.

10. Time of Completion and Liquidated Damages: Bidder must agree to commence work on or before a date to be specified in a written "Notice to Proceed" of the County and to fully complete the project within 120 consecutive Calendar Days thereafter. Bidder must agree also to pay as liquidated damages, the sum of $500.00 for each consecutive calendar day thereafter as hereinafter provided in the Agreement and Contract Documents. No time extensions will be granted, except in case of unusual (unseasonable) weather conditions or additional work requested by the County. Bidder agrees that the sum of $500.00 per day is a fair and reasonable approximation of the actual damages incurred by the County for the Bidder’s failure to complete the project within the time outlined above and that such liquidated damages in this Section are not penal in nature but rather the parties’ attempt to fairly quantify the actual damages incurred by the County for such delays.

11. Pre-Demolition Meeting. The County and Contractor shall meet as soon as practicable following the Notice to Proceed to discuss the project.

12. Security for Payment and Faithful Performance. Simultaneously with delivery of the executed contract, the Contractor shall furnish a surety bond or bonds as security for faithful performance of this contract and for the payment of all persons performing labor on the project under this contract and furnishing materials in connection with this contract. The Bond furnished by bidder shall contain the requirements and conditions set forth in and shall comply in all respects with Section 107.170 RSMo and other applicable legal requirements. The surety on such bond or bonds shall be a duly authorized surety company satisfactory to the County and shall have a rating of at least “A-” from Best’s in an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the contract price. Attorneys-in-fact who sign contract bonds must file with each bond a certified and effectively dated copy of their power of attorney.
