AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           October 11, 2010

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Purchase request 42738 to C & C Peat Co., Inc. for Hauling, Treatment and Composing of Domestic Wastewater Residuals

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of purchase request 42738 to C & C Peat Co., Inc. (C&C) for Hauling, Treatment and Composing of Domestic Wastewater Residuals not to exceed $25,000.00.

 

Analysis:

As wastewater is treated, residual bio-solids accumulate during the treatment process and create a disposal challenge.  Prior to establishing an agreement with C&C for the above subject services in 2008 as provided by resolution 8125, wastewater residual management was accomplished by City staff and usually resulted in overtime expenses.

 

Utilizing C&C has resulted in a decrease in staff overtime, an increased lifespan of sludge application areas due to decreased use, and reduced liability from the standpoint of regulatory requirements.

 

Options:

1.  Approve purchase request 42738 with C & C Peat Co., Inc.; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

C&C will receive payment from the City at the rate of $.015 per gallon of residual accepted.  Funds in the amount of $25,000.00 are budgeted in the account cited below.
