ORIGINATING CITY MANAGERS
DEPARTMENT AGENDA ITEM REVIEW
Thom Head, Public Works Approve the purchase of a new Solid
Jon Carlson, Solid Waste Waste collection vehicle from Heil
Manufacturing and authorize the City
Manager to execute a purchase agreement
not to exceed $157,370.
PREVIOUS ACTIONS: Approved in Fiscal Year 1999/00 Budget.
RECOMMENDED COUNCIL ACTION: Passage of Resolution No. 99- approving the purchase of a new collection truck for the Solid Waste Enterprise and authorize the City Manager to execute the agreement and necessary documents to purchase a 2000 Volvo/Heil automated collection truck in the amount not to exceed $157,370.
COMMENTS: The Citys continued residential growth warrants the purchase of a new automated collection truck to keep route size down to a regular work day. During the transition to full routes, a new truck will provide a spare to allow for better maintenance intervals.
The City Solid Waste Department has built a fleet of Heil automated collection trucks and currently operates 4 of this style in residential collection. The Heil Company continues to improve its product while using the same automated collection technology. Many of the parts have remained identical from the first two purchased in 1994 through the last two in 1997 and 1998.
To maintain fleet consistency, minimize parts inventory, and to continue our successful collection operation, staff recommends sole-source purchase of the Heil rapid rail automated collection truck.
