REQUEST FOR COUNCIL ACTION

January 25, 2000 _________3________
DATE ITEM NUMBER

ORIGINATING CITY MANAGER DEPARTMENT AGENDA ITEM REVIEW
Thom Head, Public Works Approve the purchase of a Carl Gaston, Wastewater Jet Cleaner Vacuum Truck for The Wastewater Enterprise

PREVIOUS ACTIONS: Approved in FY99/00 Budget

RECOMMENDED COUNCIL ACTION:  Passage of a resolution approving the purchase of a new vactor truck for the wastewater enterprise to Aquatech and authorize the City Manager to execute the agreement and necessary documents to purchase a 2000 Aquatech Model B10 and Sterling cab and chassis in the amount not to exceed $199,847.04.

COMMENTS:  The City’s present Vactor cleaning unit has proven ineffective for high productivity sewer collection system cleaning.  The Aquatech Model B-10 is a state of the art hydrojet cleaner and vacuum debris removal unit.  The unit has a 10 cubic yard debris hopper and a jet rodder capable of 85 gallons of water per minute for line cleaning.  The Aquatech will enable crews to move forward to a proactive collection system cleaning program without the need for confined space entry procedures, which are time consuming and expensive.  The jet/vacuum unit will also be available for removal of debris from Storm Drain systems as required by the City’s NPDES permit.

Staff obtained quotes from three different vendors and checked warranties thoroughly.  Attached are quotes from the three vendors.

Attachment:    Resolution No.
