Meeting Date:           March 9, 2009

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of an agreement with Lela Partin, d/b/a Dragonworks Professional Fireworks Displays Unlimited to provide aerial fireworks display for the City’s Fourth of July Celebration

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing a three-year agreement with Lela Partin d/b/a Dragonworks Professional Fireworks Displays Unlimited for $15,000.00 per year with a total contract value of $45,000.00.

 

Analysis:

On December 1, 2008, the Purchasing Division issued a Request for Proposal for the Fourth of July Fireworks Display, two proposals were received.  Both proposers sought annual budget for the display of $15,000.00 for a 30-minute program. There was a substantial variation in the amount and size of shells each company proposed for their display.  Dragonworks will use a total of 4,084 shells and effects in each display for the  three-years.  Zamebelli offered a total of 740 shells.  The Recreation Department has evaluated both proposals and determined Dragonworks Professional Fireworks has proposed the best display in both quantity and quality.

 

Furthermore, Lela and Fred Partin d/b/a Dragonworks Professional Fireworks Displays Unlimited have produced the Fourth of July Fireworks Display for the past eight years and have been both dependable and dedicated in their service to the City of Leesburg.  Staff believes it is in the best interest of the City to approve the attached agreement for three years.

 

Options:

1. Approve execution of the agreement with Lela Partin d/b/a Dragonworks Professional Fireworks Displays Unlimited; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Funding is budgeted and available in the 2009 fiscal year for the July 4, 2009 display.  Funds for additional years will be requested in the appropriate fiscal year.  Should funds for this and future years not be appropriated by the Commission, the agreement may be terminated by the City due to non-appropriation of funds.
