Staff recommends execution of an agreement with RTS Transformer, Inc. in the amount of $613,563.20 for Rewind of the Airport Transformer.
On August 7, 2009, the Purchasing Division issued Bid #90411 for Rewind of the Airport Power Transformer located at 8747 County Road 44, Leesburg, Florida 34748. This work is necessary to ensure continued electric service to the eastern sector of the city including the Leesburg Airport, Lake Sumter Community College, Lake Square Mall, Silver Lake, etc.
