Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing an agreement with the Odyssey Manufacturing Company authorizing acquisitions by the Water and Wastewater Departments of bulk Sodium Hypochlorite at the purchase price of $.85 per gallon.
The Environmental Services Department has a need to purchase Bulk Sodium Hypochlorite for water treatment plant operations. Pricing, terms, and conditions are a result of a ‘piggy-back‘ agreement based on a current competitively awarded contract by the City of Mulberry, Florida for the period January 1, 2009, through December 30, 2009.
Environmental Services has used Odyssey Manufacturing for several years to provide their Sodium Hypochlorite. They are pleased with the service provided, the pricing, and the product. Odyssey provides a high quality sodium hypochlorite free from contaminants. This quality means a lower ratio is needed for water treatment. This results in a lower total cost when compared to lower priced lower quality products.
The initial term of the Agreement will be through September 30, 2009, and will provide for additional one year renewals dependent upon the City of Mulberry extending its contract, or more favorable prices being available through other similar municipal agreements.
1. Approve execution of the agreement with Odyssey Manufacturing Company; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The estimated annual cost for both the water and wastewater divisions is $60,000.00.
