Huntington Park Aquatic Center
$31 Million Dollar Project Will Bid!
Category:Around The State News
By Tony Morelli, Southwestern Regional Compliance Manager. -

For the last eight Months, CIFAC has been engaged in an on-going battle with the City of Huntington Park concerning the illegal contract award of the construction of their Aquatic Center and Related Amenities Project, located within Salt Lake Park.

The City awarded a Design-Build (DB) contract to an unregistered contractor during their August 6, 2019, City Council Meeting. Unfortunately, they overlooked the part about prequalification, advertising, establishing evaluation criteria, short-listing of proposed firms, and the entire bidding process as required by California’s Public Contract Code.Tony Morelli, Southwestern Regional Compliance Manager
How it all started

The demolition of the old concrete skate park and site preparation commenced in late 2019. In early May of 2020, an anonymous reporting party (RP) reached out to me with concerns about prior city actions that they felt may have taken advantage of its citizens. The RP suggested that perhaps CIFAC might want to take a closer look at this project.

The investigation begins

At the August 6, 2019, City Council meeting, the City Manager’s staff report indicated to the Council “Staff had met with contractors who are known to specialize in the aquatic construction field and determined that a viable option for project delivery would be to utilize a design-build project delivery method.” His report further stated, “In house engineers prepared a summary and determined that the cost estimate to be in the $31 million range”. Missing in this report was any mention of advertising or bidding for DB proposals or a bidder’s summary showing a best value/cost comparison. At this same meeting, the City Council approved a motion and awarded the $24 million dollar project to a contractor.

Since I was unable to locate the Department of Industrial Relations PWC 100 form, contractor registration, or any advertising or noticing regarding the bidding of this project online, I sent a California Public Records Act (CPRA) request on May 5th to obtain documents. I wanted to see a list of the DB firms who provided proposals, the City’s evaluation criteria and ranking process that was used, in addition to other compliance requirements. Per the California Public Records Act, the City had ten days to respond.

Let the games begin

Initially, I received no response or documents from my CPRA request. On June 1st, I received the first of many emails from the City’s contracted law firm responding on the City’s behalf. Their counsel advised of delays in responding to CIFACs request, citing that due to COVID-19 and the stay at home orders, the City had minimal staffing and indicated that they would respond to our requests within forty-five days. The following day, I informed the City and their counsel, that neither the Governor nor the State Legislature acted to limit or delay the rights provided by the CPRA. I demanded the City comply with its obligations under the CPRA and State Constitution to provide the seven requested documents or CIFAC would likely pursue legal action.

To pacify CIFAC’s request, on June 11th, the City’s counsel sent copies of three of the seven requested documents, but missing were the critical ones pertaining to; advertising, evaluation criteria and firms who submitted proposals. Their counsel advised that they would continue to roll-out documents hereafter and anticipated that all documents would be ready for CIFAC’s review by July 15, 2020. Of course, as suspected, on July 15th, I received a letter from their Counsel indicating, “There are no documents responsive to this (your) request.” That validated what I had suspected all along. The City didn’t have any documents because they failed to advertise or bid out the project in accordance with the law and instead awarded it to a contractor of their choice.

After consulting with legal counsel, CIFAC decided on a course of action to pursue this blatant violation of California’s bidding laws. After our counsel initiated communications and re-confirmed that the City had no further documents responsive to our CPRA request, CIFAC’s counsel advised the City that they had no legal justification in violating California’s Public Contract Code (PCC) sections 22160, 20162 and 22164 and requested the City to: Stop work on the project immediately, rescind the award to their contractor and competitively bid the project in accordance with the PCC. The City was further advised that if they did not rescind the award and competitively bid the project, the underlying contract would be void and unenforceable.

Construction progress was halted while counsel for both the City and CIFAC continued discussing the issue. The City’s counsel suggested that if the City considered rebidding, the City’s intent to rebid would not be admitting any fault, nor that the City’s actions should not be viewed that your client’s position is correct, etc. (A load of legal hogwash!) Through all of this, CIFAC and our counsel remained steadfast in our position to uphold California’s bidding laws, demanding that the City stop any further construction activity, and properly bid the project. The city agreed to halt construction while they review their options. During this time, the reporting party alerted me that work hours had apparently changed from daytime to nighttime! And lo and behold, work was underway in the wee hours of the night.

As a side note, it was found that the soil was contaminated at the site, equating to additional costs of approximately $2 million!

After exhausting all attempts to resolve the issue between both parties, CIFAC decided that enough was enough and to have its counsel pursue legal recourse through the courts. CIFAC’s counsel filed in California Superior Court, Los Angeles County, a Writ of Mandate pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 1085 to cure the failure and refusal of the City of Huntington Park to competitively bid the Aquatic Center project at Salt Lake Park. The City, after notification of our intent to file the writ and with the impending case against them, finally took appropriate action at its December 1, 2020, City Council meeting. The Council unanimously voted to bid the project.

Due to CIFAC’s actions and determination in seeking the only acceptable outcome, contractors will now have an opportunity to bid on the City’s $31 million dollar Aquatic Center project in a fair and transparent manner. To that end, CIFAC will continue to remain engaged and follow the City’s bidding process, to ensure that it remains that way!

Let me start by saying what a shame Huntington Park is losing their Police Officers for what? For greed, because of corruption? Because management and the City Council doesn’t care? All of the above. What a shame. Now here is another indication the City doesn’t care. Three employees that work within City hall have contracted Covid-19. According to the Los Angeles Health Department, the city needs to advise the county of this they are mandated to do this but they have not. According to Sate law, the employer of any company that has three or more employees who contracted COVID-19 within 14 day of one another needs to advise their local health department. Huntington park has not. It also says in the county and state guidelines that if any employee contracts Covid-19, the employer Must notify any employee who may have been in contact with that employee within 24 hours. This the city has not done and they are well aware of their employees who are out because of COVID-19. As employees we all have families, we have children, loved ones, parents at home. We need to be safe as possible, we need to be informed about contact with an employee who has been diagnosed with Covid-19. Does the city care, No. we are like cattle to them, work until you catch the disease then take your own time off to recover. The city recently had a Covid-19 testing site at Raul Perez park. Did the city inform their employees, did the city ask that they be tested. No. The city has an obligation to their employees to keep them as safe as possible, they have an obligation to follow the County guidance, protocols they do not. There is no screening of employees when they enter, no temperature checks, they do no screen anyone when they enter City Hall, they don’t even clean. BEWARE CITIZENS Of HUNTINGTON PARK, when you enter city hall it is not being cleaned, it is not being sanitized, no one wipes the doors down, cleans the chairs, wipes the counters, no one. The only cleaning done is by the employees who clean their own work stations. The city never hired anyone to do this, and it has never been done. Management stays away from the first floor, they are afraid to catch the COVID. Only the hourly employees work on the first floor and we are dropping fast. Three employees out now, at least two are out because of being in direct contact with affected employee. The City doesn’t follow health department orders, why would they follow the law Their operating above it now. What a shame !!!
