AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

Meeting Date:           April 11, 2011

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of a third amendment of an agreement with Lewis Tree Service, Inc.

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of a third amendment with Lewis Tree Service, Inc. for a continuation of services ending September 30, 2011.

 

Analysis:

Lewis Tree Service, Inc. provides tree trimming services primarily to the Electric Department and to other city departments when requested.  The City originally contracted with Lewis Tree Service, Inc. in October 2005 for a three year period.  The extensions provided for in the original agreement have been exercised.

 

Invitation to Bid 110071 for tree trimming services was issued to establish a new contract with a vendor.  On January 5, 2011, six (6) bids were received.  After review and evaluation of the bids, they were all considered non-responsive.  There are some areas within the state of work and specifications that need to be revised prior to the bid being reissued.

 

Staff requests commission approve an extension of the agreement with Lewis Tree Service, Inc. through the end of this fiscal year in order to provide uninterrupted service to the electric department.  A revised solicitation will be issued in July 2011 in order to establish a new contract with the selected vendor to be effective October 1, 2011.

 

Options:

1.  Authorize execution of a third amendment with Lewis Tree Service, Inc.; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The Electric Department budget includes funding for tree trimming in the amount of $500,000, of which $176,000 has been spent to date.
