concerning this bid at the County Engineer’s Office Conference Room at the Mobile Government
Plaza, Sixth Floor, South Tower, Mobile, AL on August 8, 2008 at 10:00 a.m.

It is the intent of the County to award up to a three year pre-event contract and then issue a Notice

All bids must be on forms provided in these Contract Documents. The entire bid package shall
be submitted with the bid. A cashier’s check drawn on an Alabama bank or a Bidder's Bond,
payable to Mobile County, Alabama, for an amount not less than five percent (5%) of the amount
bid, but in no event more than ten thousand dollars, shall be filed with the bid, the Bidder's Bond
being prepared and signed by a bonding company authorized to do business in the State of
Alabama.

An annual Performance Bond in the form and terms approved by the County in the amount of
$4,000,000 will be required at the signing of the contract. The Mobile County Commission will
reimburse the cost of this performance bond up to $25,000 per year upon proof of cost and an
improved invoice submitted at the end of the calendar year. A Payment Bond in form and terms

the contract documents.

No contract documents will be issued to contractors later than forty-eight (48) hours prior to the time
indicated above for receiving bids.

No bids will be considered unless the bidder, whether resident or non-resident of Alabama, is
properly qualified to submit a proposal for this type of work in accordance with all applicable laws
of the State of Alabama. This shall include evidence of holding a current license from the State
Licensing Board for General Contractors, Montgomery, Alabama, as required by Chapter 8 of Title
34, of the Code of Alabama, 1975. In addition, foreign corporations shall show evidence of current
qualification with the Secretary of State to do business in the State of Alabama.

Bidders must make their own estimates of the facilities and difficulties attending the performance
of the proposed contract, including local conditions, uncertainty of weather, and all other
contingencies. Estimates of quantities provided in the proposal have been provided as a base bid
in which to determine the lowest total bid amount. The debris quantities are subject to vary as a
result of specific storm related conditions, and adjustments to the base bid to accommodate the
variance are indicated at the bottom of the bid form. All designations and prices shall be fully and
clearly set forth. The proper space in the bid and guaranty forms shall be suitably filled in. A
contract may be awarded, and if so, then the award will be on the basis of the lowest responsible
responsive bid.

corporations must be executed in the legal name of the corporation followed by the name of the
State of Incorporation and by the signature and designation of the president, secretary, or other
person authorized to bind it in the matter. The name of each person shall also be typed or printed
below the signature. A bid by a person who affixes to his signature the word "president,"
"secretary," "agent," or other designation without disclosing his principal, may be held to be the bid
of the individual signing. When requested by the County Commission of Mobile County, Mobile
County, Alabama, satisfactory evidence of the authority of the officer signing on behalf of a
partnership or corporation shall be furnished.

Alternate bids will not be considered unless called for.

Where the word "County" appears herein, the same refers to Mobile County, Alabama, and includes

and Disposal, Project No. CCP-122-08 to be opened August 13, 2008 at 10:00 a.m.."

Faxed bids will not be accepted. Bid prices shall remain valid until December 31, 2011.

No responsibility will attach to Mobile County or the County Commission for the premature opening
of a bid not properly addressed or identified. The Mobile County Commission reserves the right to
reject any and/or all bids, and to issue a Notice-To-Proceed if deemed necessary by the County
Commission.

SUBLETTING OR ASSIGNING OF CONTRACT:

Limitations. The Contractor shall not sublet, assign, transfer, convey, sell, or otherwise dispose of
any portion of the contract, his right, title or interest therein, or his power to execute such contract
to any person, firm or corporation without written consent of the County, and such written consent
shall not be construed to relieve the Contractor of any responsibility for the fulfillment of the
contract.

Subcontractor's Status: A subcontractor shall be recognized only in the capacity of an employee or
agent of the Contractor and the Contractor will be responsible to the County for all of the
subcontractor's work, including failures or omissions; and his removal may be required by the
County Commission, as in the case of an employee.

The Contractor shall not employ any subcontractor, supplier, or other person or organization
whether initially or as a substitute, against whom the County may have reasonable objection. The
Contractor shall not be required to employ any subcontractor, supplier, or other person or
organization to furnish or perform any of the work against whom the Contractor has reasonable
objection.

All subcontractors, suppliers, or other persons or organizations (including those who are able to
furnish the principal items of materials or equipment) shall be submitted to the County for
acceptance. The County’s acceptance, in writing, of any such subcontractors, suppliers, or other
person or organization so identified may be revoked on the basis of reasonable objection after due
investigation, in which case the Contractor shall submit an acceptable substitute. No acceptance by
the County of any such subcontractor, supplier, or other person or organization shall constitute a
waiver of any right of the County to reject defective work.

The Contractor shall be fully responsible to the County for all acts and omissions of the
subcontractors, suppliers, or other persons, or organizations performing or furnishing any of the
work under a direct or indirect contract with the Contractor just as the Contractor is responsible for
the Contractor’s own acts and omissions. Nothing in the resulting contract documents shall create
for the benefit of any such subcontractors, suppliers, or other persons, or organizations, any
contractual relationship between the County and any such subcontractors, suppliers, or other
persons, or organizations, nor shall it create any obligation on the part of the County to pay or to see
to the payment of any money due any such subcontractors, suppliers, or other persons, or
organizations, except as may otherwise be required by laws and regulations.

                                           Mobile County Commission
             Disaster Debris Removal Unit Price Contract 2008                                  Page 6

The Contractor shall be solely responsible for scheduling and coordinating the work of
subcontractors, suppliers, or other persons, or organizations performing or furnishing any of the
work under a direct or indirect contract with the Contractor. The Contractor shall require all
subcontractors, suppliers, or other persons, or organizations performing or furnishing any of the
work to communicate with the County through the Contractor.

All work performed for the Contractor by a subcontractor or supplier shall be pursuant to an
appropriate agreement between the Contractor and the subcontractor or supplier that specifically
binds the subcontractor or supplier to the applicable terms and conditions of the resulting contract
for the benefit of the County. Whenever any such agreement is with a subcontractor or supplier who
is listed as an additional insured on the property insurance required in this document, the agreement
between the Contractor and the subcontractor or supplier shall contain provisions whereby the
subcontractor or supplier waives all rights against the County, Contractor, the County’s consultants,
and all other additional insured for all losses and damages caused by, arising out of, or resulting
from, any of the perils covered by such policies and any other property insurance applicable to the
work. If the insurers on any such policies require separate waiver forms to be signed by any
subcontractor or supplier, the Contractor shall obtain the same.


LOBBYING:

Lobbying of any member of the Mobile County Commission or its officers, employees, or elected
officials regarding this invitation to bid or the award of any resulting contract at any time prior to
such award, by any bidder or any member of the bidder’s staff, an agent of the bidder, or any person
employed by any legal entity affiliated with or representing an organization that is responding to this
invitation to bid, or who has a pending bid protest is strictly prohibited; provided, however, nothing
herein shall prohibit a prospective bidder from contacting the Purchasing Department or
Environmental Director or County Engineer to address situations such as clarification and/or
questions related to the bid specification. For purposes of this provision lobbying shall include but
not be limited to, influencing or attempting to influence action or non-action in connection with any
bid or contract through direct or indirect oral or written communication or an attempt to obtain
goodwill of persons and/or entities specified in this provision. Such actions shall constitute grounds
for the rejection of any bid.

2.1    SPECIAL PROVISION FOR DISASTER DEBRIS REMOVAL OPERATIONS

2.1 1. It is the intent of this contract that the CONTRACTOR shall provide all labor, services,
       equipment, materials, and supplies necessary to collect all eligible brush, tree parts, mixed
       debris, C&D debris, and all other eligible hurricane generated debris from county and state
       maintained and in-use rights-of-way and/or public property. All vegetative debris may be
       hauled to a debris volume reduction site or authorized dirt pit as designated by the
       Contractor. All mixed debris and C&D debris will be hauled to either a temporary debris
       staging/management site(s) or permitted landfill.

2.1 2. For the purpose of this contract and the activities generated by this contract the term “rights-
       of-way” shall mean the area immediately adjacent (left and right) to the traveled roadway
       of all identified County and Alabama Department of Transportation maintained public
       access roads within the unincorporated area of Mobile County. CONTRACTOR will not
       remove storm debris outside the obvious right-of-way. It is the intent of this contract that
       debris placed contiguous to debris in the right-of-way, but just outside of the right-of-way
       because of space limitations, be removed if the equipment being used can reach the debris
       while said equipment remains in the right-of-way.

2.1 3. The term “brush and tree parts” shall mean all portions of trees, to include the root-ball, that
       have been placed in the right-of-way as defined above.

2.1 4. The CONTRACTOR shall collect all mixed debris and construction and demolition (C&D)
       debris from rights-of-way of designated public access roads or from designated temporary
       debris staging sites as identified by the Project Officer.

2.1 5. The CONTRACTOR will not trim "hangers" or cut down any trees under this contract
       without the expressed consent of the Project Officer.

2.1 6. The CONTRACTOR shall exercise care so as not to generate litter during the removal
       process. The CONTRACTOR shall clean up loose material in the immediate vicinity of the
       rights-of-way. The CONTRACTOR shall be responsible for the repair or replacement of
       any collateral damages caused to private or public property.

2.1 7. Work shall consist of a minimum of three (3) passes, unless otherwise directed by the Project
       Officer, to collect all of the brush, tree parts, mixed debris, C&D debris, and all other
       hurricane generated debris set out by residents for collection within the rights-of-way from
       both sides of the roadway.

2.1 8. The Project Officer reserves the right to direct the CONTRACTOR to return to designated
       locations within the pickup zone(s) at the same price per cubic yard rate as specified in the
       bid schedule.

2.1 9. Measuring Vehicle Load Carrying Capacity. The CONTRACTOR shall submit to the
       Project Officer a typed listing that indicates the type of vehicle, make and model, license

                                           Mobile County Commission
             Disaster Debris Removal Unit Price Contract 2008                                  Page 9

       plate number, drivers name, CONTRACTOR equipment number and measured interior
       volume, in cubic yards, of the load bed of each piece of equipment utilized to haul debris.
       The CONTRACTOR and Project Officer or representative shall jointly measure the volume
       of each piece of equipment calculated from actual interior bed measurements. Maximum
       volumes may be rounded to the nearest cubic yard (<18.5 CY = 18 CY - >18.5 CY = 19
       CY). The reported measured maximum volume of any load bed shall be the same as shown
       on the signs affixed to each piece of equipment. Trucks with less than full capacities will
       be assessed by visual inspection by the tower monitors. Hurricane Trash Conversion Factor
       will be determined by FEMA for the particular disaster or emergency.

2.1 10. Equipment Signage. Prior to commencing operations, the CONTRACTOR shall affix to
        each piece of equipment, signs or markings indicating the Owner/Operator’s name and a
        unique equipment identification number. One sign shall be placed on each side of the
        equipment. For those trucks, trailers and other equipment intended to haul debris, the
        maximum volume, in cubic yards, of the load bed shall also be shown. Signs shall be
        maintained in an easily readable fashion for the duration of the work. Minimum letter size
        shall be 3 inches in height.

2.1 11. CONTRACTOR shall use self-loading and self unloading trucks equipped with grapples or
        loaders with grapple attachments to reduce potential collateral damage and to expedite the
        cleanup operation. Trucks or trailers that require or operate by hand loading or hand
        unloading are prohibited. Any truck used to haul debris must be capable of rapidly dumping
        its load without the assistance of other equipment; be equipped with a tailgate that will
        effectively contain the debris during transport and permit the truck to be filled to capacity;
        and measured and marked for its load capacity. Sideboards or other extensions to the bed are
        allowable provided they meet all applicable rules and regulations, cover the front and both
        sides, and are constructed in a manner to withstand severe conditions. The sideboards are to
        be constructed of 2" by 6" boards or greater and not to extend more than two feet above the
        metal sides. The Project Officer must approve all requests for extensions. Equipment will
        be inspected prior to its use by the County’s representatives.

2.1 12. The CONTRACTOR’s representative must coordinate daily with the Project Officer or his
        designated monitor. The CONTRACTOR’s representative must have the authority to act
        on behalf of the CONTRACTOR to address and resolve issues that may arise during the
        course of this work.

2.1 13. The CONTRACTOR shall provide proof, in the form of signed copies of load tickets, of
        proper delivery to the designated disposal location(s). Such load tickets shall be checked
        against the log of deliveries compiled by the Project Officer's representative and shall be the
        basis for payment.

2.1 14. The CONTRACTOR shall notify the Project Officer’s representative of any significant
        damage to public or private property or major problems, such as equipment failure or loss
        of qualified labor, on a daily basis.

2.1 15. The CONTRACTOR shall work during daylight hours only, a minimum of 6 days per week.
        The CONTRACTOR is responsible for coordinating with the Project Officer in the event
        weather condition delay or modify the proposed daily schedule.

2.1 16. Traffic Control. The CONTRACTOR shall be responsible for control of pedestrian and
        vehicular traffic in the work area. CONTRACTOR shall provide all flag persons, signs,
        equipment, and other devices necessary to meet Federal and local requirements. As a
        minimum, one flag person shall be posted at each loading site to direct traffic.

2.1 17. The Project Officer’s representative will monitor all CONTRACTOR operations. Payment
        will be based on validated load tickets. The Project Officer's representative may have load
        site monitors stationed at designated "Choke Points" chosen by the CONTRACTOR and
        coordinated with the Project Officer’s representative the day before. The "Choke Points"
        must be kept to a minimum and located at a safe site along the primary haul road to the
        designated disposal site. The Project Officer's load site monitors will be stationed at the
        "Choke Point" and each truck driver will be given a load ticket that validates where the
        material originated. The quantity of debris hauled will be estimated at the disposal site by
        the Project Officer’s disposal site monitor. The estimated quantity will be recorded on the
        load ticket and a copy of the load ticket given to the truck driver.

2.1 18. The Project Officer will also have roving monitors that will observe CONTRACTOR
        operations to ensure that only eligible debris is removed from specified locations as
        designated by the Project Officer. Trucks that are observed picking up material outside of
        the designated road right-of-ways or ineligible debris will have all loads hauled that day
        deducted and the load tickets invalidated

2.1 19. The CONTRACTOR shall provide hand-fed chipping equipment and crew to conduct on-
        street chipping of vegetative debris (tree limbs/branches) in areas inaccessible to normal
        debris clearing equipment. Locations of on-street chipping operations must be approved by
        the Project Officer.

2.1 20. All limbs, branches, foliage, etc. in inaccessible areas will be chipped on site using a hand-
        fed chipper. Chips and other tree debris will be collected and hauled away from work areas
        by the CONTRACTOR immediately following completion of the work.

2.1 21. No guarantee of minimum number of crews is implied or expressed and payment for services
        will only be made for actual work performed as required by the Project Officer.

2.1 22. The work area is the unincorporated portion of Mobile County.

2.1 23. Work location and assignments of all contractual crews shall be coordinated daily with the
        Project Officer’s monitor. CONTRACTOR shall report at the start of each work day to the
        Project Officer’s monitor the CONTRACTOR’s work locations and any foreseen delays or
        problems.
