This work order dated 2/24/2023 is an extension to a previously  
entered into agreement dated 4/26/2022. It is the intent of this Work  
Order to provide architectural and engineering services in connection  
with the assessment of the exterior envelope of the City Hall Building.  
Services shall include review of the facility as well as field investigation  
by the architect / engineer to establish the deficiencies of the existing  
building that are causing water intrusion and damage to interior  
finishes. The deliverable for this task shall consist of a report that  
summarizes the assessment and makes a  
recommendation on the corrective actions needed.  
The City has unique and extensive community needs after the impacts  
of Hurricane Ian & Nicole in 2022. The unprecedented flooding and  
damages sustained not only to Deltona but the entire State of Florida  
has opened up many funding opportunities that the City needs to  
proactively and assertively pursue.  
The City of Deltona advertised for Request for Qualifications in April  
2023 and received two (2) submittals from Pegasus Engineering &  
TetraTech, Inc. The selection committee members ranked each firm  
with a potential of 103 possible points.  
The magnitude of possible  
projects to pursue through grant applications justifies the need to have  
two firms ready to engage in services as needed.  
Approval of this item authorizes the necessary budget transfers to  
facilitate Commission approval and further authorizes the City Manager  
to sign any documents necessary to further Commission approval of  
this item.

with respect to any matter considered at this meeting or hearing, he/she will need
