RECOMMENDATION
Authorize the City Manager to purchase a 2002 Automated Side Loader Refuse Truck from Oakland Truck Center, Inc. for the Solid Waste Division at a cost not to exceed $159,046.31.

PREVIOUS ACTION
In the 2001/2002 budget for replacement vehicles, $160,000 had been budgeted to purchase a new residential refuse truck.

BACKGROUND
Staff contacted four (4) vendors of which three (3) said they would be able to quote on the Autocar Expeditor with the Heil automated side loading body. Western Truck Parts & Equipment Co. from Sacramento came back with a “no bid at this time” in addition to Denardi Equipment in Livermore, which sells Volvo equipment but not refuse trucks.

Oakland Truck Center, Inc. Total $159,046.31
Central Valley Truck Center Total $160,013.00

The Solid Waste Division requested the Volvo Xpeditor model WX64 with a Heil Rapid Rail automated side loader body to maintain consistency with the existing fleet. This helps fleet maintenance by cutting down the number of different parts that they need to have on hand. In addition, these vehicles are versatile enough to be operated by all drivers.
