3.0 COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR BOARD APPROVAL

3.1 Buildings and Grounds

3.1.1 Rejection of all bids for the Schwartz Performing Arts Center Project

RESOLVED that, due to a court decision that precludes the College from awarding bids until Cayuga County can complete its own review as defined by the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA), the Board of Trustees of Cayuga Community College hereby rejects all bids and, further, be it

RESOLVED, that the Board of Trustees of Cayuga Community College does hereby authorize and direct the College administration to execute and deliver all necessary and appropriate documents to notify bidders of the rejection for all trades in connection with the Schwartz Performing Arts Center Project.

Motion to approve made by Mr. Karpinski, seconded by Mr. Kott.

Mr. Fearon stated that the County may be ready to move on their support. If they do not have all the due diligence completed to get the environmental review done, they will not move forward. That process could be 30 to 60 days. No one knows until it actually proceeds. Dr. Larson stated that the earliest date that the building would open is September 1, 2013. Once we fulfill the court order, the way is open for the next steps; putting the project out for bid, and the process would start over again.
