<>REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR CDBG-DR GRANT ADMINISTRATION
CITY OF GRACEVILLE
DEO AGREEMENT #M0172
The City of Graceville hereby requests proposals from qualified individuals or firms to provide administrative services for a Florida Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) in the Disaster Recovery category. The City has been awarded CDBG-DR DEO Agreement No. M0172 in the amount of $1,1547,728.00 for the FFY 2022 funding cycle; therefore, procurement and contracting will follow CDBG regulations.
The funding has been approved to harden the sanitary sewer system throughout the city. The city was awarded $1,154,728 in CDBG DR funding to harden the City ‘s Portable Water System. Following the events of Hurricane Michael, the City was without power for eight days. During this time, one of the City’s three potable water wells was not equipped with an emergency generator and was therefore inoperable. Another well was equipped with an outdated emergency generator that failed in the immediate aftermath of the storm. This left the city dependent on one portable well equipped with an aging generator. One potable water well with limited electrical dependability left residents and City employees in a vulnerable position while attempting to recover in the immediate aftermath.
With a low to moderate (LMI) of over 73% this project qualified as a LMI national objective and has no leverage funds. This project will take place at various sites throughout the city and is considered a city-wide project.
Administrative services will include complete management and reporting for the project with separate tracking for each funding source. A scope of work outlining the tasks to be performed and a proposed cost must be included in the proposal.
The evaluation criteria that will be utilized in the selection of a grant administrator are as follows:

  1. The staff’s number of years of experience with administering projects through the State of Florida Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program. 20 pts.
  2. The number of years of experience of the firm’s management group with the State of Florida Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program. 20 pts.
  3. Proposed approach to administration of the grant (requires an outline of the proposed tasks to be performed). 20 pts.
  4. Number of favorable client reference letters dated 2011 or later provided from other communities. Please note, only one (1) letter per community will be accepted. 20 pts.
  5. The quality of the response from the client references provided from other communities. 15 pts.
  6. Fee or proposed fee basis. 5 pts.
    In the event of a tie, if one of the businesses involved in the tie is minority or female owned, they shall be ranked above the other firm or firms involved in the tie.
    Proposals for CDBG-DR Administrative Services should include a fee for the services and an explanation or a basis for the fees proposed. Fees shall be lump sum for CDBG-DR services.
    Respondents are required to submit one (1) original and five (5) copies, and an electronic copy in a sealed envelope marked “SEALED PROPOSAL FOR CDBG-DR GRANT ADMINSTRATION M0172”. Proposals must be received by 10:00 A.M CST. on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at the City of Graceville City Hall, Attention: Misty D. Smith, City Clerk, City of Graceville, 5348 Cliff Street, Graceville, Florida 32440. Proposals will be publicly opened on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at 10:05 A.M.

<> <>17<> <>08/10/2023<> <Final Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity in the 100-Year Floodplain August 10, 2023 City of Cottondale PO Box 398, Cottondale, FL, 32431 850 352-4361 To: All Interested Agencies, Groups, and Individuals This is to give notice that the City of Cottondale has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Orders 11988 in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Wetlands Protection to determine the potential affect that the activity in the floodplain and/or wetland will have on the environment. The activity is funded by the Florida Commerce Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program under Grant #M0042. Grant #M0042 will assist the City of Cottondale in acquiring and demolishing several buildings damaged beyond reasonable repair by Hurricane Michael in 2018. As these structures still stand and pose a threat to public safety and degrade the visual aspect of downtown Cottondale, they are to be removed to grade, stabilized, and restored to a development-ready state. One of these parcels lies in areas mapped by FEMA as being in the 100-yr floodplain. The approximate area of impact is 0.52 acres. Existing structures in this flood plain area are to be totally removed. The proposed project is located at 3165 Main Street, Cottondale, FL. The City of Cottondale has considered the following alternatives and mitigation measures to be taken to minimize adverse impacts and to restore and preserve natural and beneficial values: One alternative would be to remove the specific component property from the grant that will have wetland impacts. This option would leave in place one of the most visible of the several buildings slated for demolition and maintain the unsafe and unsavory eyesore on the City’s main thoroughfare. This is an untenable condition. It will be the City’s intent to abide with all pertinent permitting issues with respect to the demolition and any future development on the affected property. The City of Cottondale has reevaluated the alternatives to building in the floodplain and has determined that it has no practicable alternative due to the scope of the project. • Alternative 1 – no impact, would eliminate from the project’s scope the properties at 3059 and 3165 N Main Street and possibly the property at 3166 N Main Street. These properties constitute approximately fifty percent of the building frontage that is blighted, and beyond permittable reconstruction. The elimination of these would render the point of this project ineffective. • Alternative 2 – Eliminating any one of these floodplain impacted structures would similarly leave an unrepairable structure on the immediate frontage of North Main Street in the public eye and inhibit reinvestment in the City’s business district. • Alternative 3 – Maintain the proposed scope of work with all identified properties participating in the Downtown Revitalization Plan funded by the CDBG grant.. Environmental files that document compliance with steps 3 through 6 of Executive Order 11988, are available for public inspection, review and copying upon request at the times and location delineated in the last paragraph of this notice for receipt of comments. There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplains can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk. Written comments must be received by Sherri McBride, City Clerk, at PO Box 398, Cottondale, FL, 32431, and 850 352-4361 on or before August 18, 2023. A full description of the project may also be reviewed from 9am to 4pm at 2659 Front Street, Cottondale, Fl. Additional information may be obtained by contacting Sherri McBride, City Clerk at 850 352-4361. Comments may also be submitted by email at [email protected] James Elmore, Mayor Environmental Certifying Official L6687 Date of Publication: 08/10/2023<> <>

NOTICE OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT AND
NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS
Date: August 10, 2023
Name of Responsible Entity: Town of Grand Ridge
Address: 2086 Porter Avenue
P. O. Box 180
Grand Ridge, Florida 32442
Contact: Amanda Applewhite, Town Clerk
Telephone Number: (850) 592-4621
These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the Town of Grand Ridge.
REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS
On or about August 29, 2023, the Town of Grand Ridge will submit a request to FloridaCommerce, formerly known as the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), for the release of Community Development Block Grant funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development (HCD) Act of 1974, as amended, to undertake a project to make the following improvements:
Activities:
Service Area (SA) #1 – Sanitary Sewer Hardening and Resiliency Service Area:
03J Sewer Line Replacement: The Town of Grand Ridge’s Sanitary Sewer Collection System is dependent on nineteen (19) aging lift stations to pump effluent away from homes and businesses in Grand Ridge and to the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The pumps and electrical components in these lift stations are nearing the end of their useful life expectancy. Replacement parts for these lift stations are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. None of the nineteen (19) Sanitary Sewer lift stations are currently equipped with emergency electrical generators or SCADA communications.
The Town of Grand Ridge will utilize $7,508,451.00 in CDBG Disaster Recovery assistance, under Round Two of the Rebuild Florida General Infrastructure Repair Program, to harden and equip its Sanitary Sewer System to be resilient and remain fully operational during future hurricanes, significant storm events and other disasters causing the loss of power to the Town’s critical sanitary sewer infrastructure facilities. This project will ensure the health, safety, and welfare for the residents of the Town of Grand Ridge, as well as for the essential Town staff working toward recovery in the aftermath of such events.
The Town will utilize its CDBG Disaster Recovery assistance to address the inadequacies of the Sanitary Sewer System by installing nineteen (19) new fixed by-pass pumps/emergency electrical generators at the Sanitary Sewer Lift Stations and an additional by-pass pump /emergency electrical generator at the WWTP. By rehabilitating all nineteen (19) of the same Sanitary Sewer Lift Stations, replacing the necessary components that include but are not limited to the aging pumps, controls, and linings, and by rehabilitating the equipment at the Wastewater Treatment Plant that was impacted by Hurricane Michael. Additionally, the Town will utilize its CDBG Disaster Recovery assistance to install a sanitary sewer system-wide SCADA system that will allow the Public Works staff to remotely monitor and operate the Sanitary Sewer System without placing themselves in danger during and in the aftermath of natural disasters and other unanticipated events.
The beneficiaries for the Flood and Drainage construction activity in SA #1 are the 929 persons residing in the 397 households within Service Area #1. A random sample service area door to door survey of the Town’s sanitary sewer customers Service Area was conducted. The results are the area is 75.89% Low and Moderate income (LMI). The project, if constructed, will greatly enhance the quality of life for the LMI households being served by the Town’s sanitary sewer system.
The wastewater treatment plant is not located in a floodplain or a wetland. While a number of the 19 lift stations are in close proximity to a flood zone, none are located within the 100-year flood plain. A portion of the proposed activities in Service Area #1 will be carried out within a wetland. Approximately .05 acres of land located within a Palustrine Forested Deciduous Semi Permanently Flooded Wetland (PF06F) wetland will be included in the construction area for Lift Station Number Two which is located at the southernmost end of Shadow Bay Drive.

Activity CDBG Cost Local Match Total
03J Sewer Line
Replacement: $ 6,514,843.00 $ 0.00 $ 6,514,843.00
03J Engineering $ 618,186.00 $ 0.00 $ 618,186.00

Totals: $7,508,451.00 $ 0.00 $7,508,451.00
Failure to provide these improvements would result in the Town of Grand Ridge not being able to harden the sanitary sewer system which will be the result when the activities included in this project are carried out.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The Town of Grand Ridge has determined the project will not have a significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required.
