Subject:                      Ratification of Purchase Order 521987 to Enviro Sales of Florida, Inc. for $146,250 (Emergency Purchase).



Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends ratifying  the emergency purchase of a filter system from Enviro Sales of Florida, Inc. for $146,250.



The Water Department requested purchase of a 2 disk Aqua Disk Filter system as an upgrade to the Plantation water treatment facility.  This was deemed an emergency purchase to upgrade the recently acquired treatment facility in order to meet Department of Environmental Protection requirements.  Failure to perform this upgrade could result in a threat to public safety and health from reduced treatment capacity at the facility.


This purchase was approved by City Manager Stock and processed by the Purchasing Division under purchase order 521987.  In accord with the City’s Charter, emergency purchases must be reported to the City Commission at the next Commission Meeting and ratified by Commission action.



1.  Ratify this emergency purchase that has been made  for $146,250; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate


Fiscal Impact

Funds were available in account number 044-4099-535.64-10 for this purpose.
