09:58 AM -- Replacement of Capitol Cafe Furniture
Ms. Contiguglia reminded committee members that the committee reviewed the proposed cafe furniture materials at the September 18 meeting, and had informally agreed upon a chair style and fabric scheme. She reminded the committee that the project would be funded with federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds. Mr. Joel Pavelis, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Business Enterprise Program, came to the table to provide information about the program and the proposal to replace the furniture. Ms. Contiguglia noted that the committee asked at previous meetings that the number of seats be maintained at the current level so that no seating capacity would be lost. Ms. Jennifer Thomsen, Legislative Council Staff, reminded the committee that chair option S3 Option B in color scheme B was initially chosen.
Ms. Sill asked a number of questions about the funding and budget for the project and about the furniture and the durability of the fabric. Mr. Pavelis responded, saying he would provide information to Ms. Sill's questions about the furniture via email (see Attachments C, D, and E). Mr. Nichols and Ms. Sill suggested that additional furniture and/or fabric be ordered to allow for repair and replacement of any furniture that is damaged. Mr. Weingardt asked for further information about the budget for the project. Mr. Pavelis responded that the budget for the entire project is $30,000. He said the armless chairs are approximately $200 less than the arm chairs and confirmed that the budget did not allow for arm chairs. He said the price would be negotiated once there is an order to be placed. Ms. Contiguglia said that if the budget will accommodate arm chairs, that the committee requests some arm chairs be ordered. Ms. Contiguglia requested that Mr. Pavelis provide final budget information after the furniture is ordered.
Mr. Pavelis noted that the replacement and refinishing and reupholstering of the furniture would take place after the end of the 2010 legislative session.
