Approve a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to purchase a new Ford
F-150 truck from Bill Brandt Ford for the Solid Waste Division not to exceed
The purchase of this truck was approved by Council in the 2002/03 mid-year
The purchase of a new truck is for the new Solid Waste Equipment Operator I,
who is expected to start in May 2003. The new employee’s core job will be to
deliver, pick up and exchange carts, as well as collect bulky items
(couches, mattresses, TV’s) directly from customers. An additional truck is
necessary to complete these job requirements.
This purchase is in compliance with the Purchasing Policy adopted on
February 26, 2002, Resolution No. 2475.
A competitive bid process took place on the truck and the results are
attached to this report. We are going with a local vendor, Bill Brandt Ford,
over the lowest bid, because of the Local Preference Clause (5%) in the
Purchasing Policy. Additionally, to have a local service center is much more
desirable and will be more cost-effective in the long-term.
Council approved a new truck in the 2002/03 mid-year budget for the Solid
Waste Division. The division has the funds available, not to exceed
