  • Request for Qualifications Bid
    September 1, 2021

    Request for Qualification and Proposals for
    Village of Rushville
    Water System Improvements


    Preliminary Engineering Grant Study - Water System Evaluation
    The Village of Rushville was recently awarded a 2020 NYS CDBG Grant to develop a Preliminary Engineering Report for the Village’s drinking water needs. The Village would like an engineering study to evaluate the presence of Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) in the public water supply. A Preliminary Engineering Report will be developed to identify intermunicipal interconnections for emergency repose, as well as creative treatment enhancements, such as activate carbon filtration, to prevent future HABs-related problems.
    The study should focus on the Diatomaceous Earth (DE) filtration plant, owned and operated by the Village, which sources its water directly from Canandaigua Lake. In 2018, the Village detected elevated concentrations of Cyanotoxins Microcystin-LR (MCLR) leaving the filter plant due to the presence of Blue Green Algae, with the issuance of a “Do Not Drink Water” advisory, putting many at risk.
    The presence of HABs in Canandaigua Lake has intensified over the past five years, and the water treatment facility is not currently equipped to handle it, presenting health risks to the entire community. This project will evaluate treatment alternatives for the purpose of mitigating HABs to ensure clean, safe, and reliable drinking water for current and future residents and businesses.

    Request of Qualifications for Engineering Consultants
    The Village is seeking Statements of Qualifications from qualified engineering consultants to assist the Village in the study. The Village will select a firm and negotiate an engineering services contract to prepare a Preliminary Engineering Report for the Village’s drinking water needs. If your firm is interested in assisting the Village with said report, please provide the following information:
    Scope of Services:
    (1) Describe your firm’s experience in providing Preliminary Engineering Reports for drinking water needs with various municipalities
    (2) Describe the organization and management effort within the firm
    (3) Identify the person you propose to prepare the Preliminary Engineering Report and include the resume of said individual(s)
    (4) Describe the specific engineering services that your firm will provide to assist the Village of Rushville in the study process
    The selection of the engineering consultant will be based on the qualifications of the firm and the staff team to be assigned to the Village for this study. The following criteria will be utilized in evaluating the credentials of each firm responding to this request: successful performance in providing engineering services for similar projects; the extent of experience attained by the person proposed to prepare the Preliminary Engineering Report and other staff persons proposed to be assigned; familiarity with the rules to regulations of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program; technical resources available with the firm to carry out the assignment; and, the availability of these resources to the Village of Rushville. The Village will negotiate a fee for services with the preferred firm. If an agreement cannot be reached, the Village will meet with the firm rated second and will attempt to negotiate a mutually acceptable fee for the scope of services to be provided. The relative weight of each criterion to be used by the Village in evaluating proposals will be as follows:
    (1) Successful experience on similar projects (past performance) 5
    (2) Technical capability and financial resources
    (Qualifications of personnel and financial stability to respondent organization) 4

  • Dollar General Proposal
    April 15, 2021

    Date: April 15, 2021
    To: Village Residents
    From: David Le Clair, Mayor, Village of Rushville
    Re: Proposed Development Gorham Rd. South Side

    The Village will be receiving a proposal to develop the parcel adjacent to the Gorham / Rushville municipal boundary. The development includes a 9100 square-feet “Retail Variety Store”, also known as a dollar type store, related site work, and parking to accommodate customer vehicles. The purpose of this memo is to alert you for an opportunity to view the informational meeting on May 10, 2021 at 7:00 PM by the developer’s representative. Most likely the Village will review a formal application and hold a Public Hearing in the near future if allowed to proceed. The development, would require an amendment to our zoning law changing the existing parcel from residential to commercial. I suggest you visit the Village Web site for updates on future meetings. Please feel free to contact me at 554-3415 if you have any questions.
