Staff recommends approval of purchase requisition 38617 to JRS Custom Fabricating for $29,995.00.
The Fleet Services Division has a 500 kW stationary generator that was removed from the Waste Water Treatment Plant. They are requesting this work from JRS Custom Fabricating to convert the stationary generator to a portable generator. This will allow the generator to be used in emergency situations at various City facilities. The size of this generator is adequate to support any one of the many facilities.
This purchase has been deemed a single source as this is the only local vendor that provides this type of service on a regular basis. Other vendors are available outside the area; however they will have higher costs due to freight charges and preparing the item for shipping.
1. Approve purchase requisition 38617 to JRS Custom Fabricating; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funds of $60,000.00 were budgeted for two new generators. Of the total, $30,000 will be used for the purchase of a new generator and the remaining $30,000 will be used for converting this larger generator.
