Adopt a Resolution approving and authorizing the City Manager to execute an agreement for the purchase and installation of additional law enforcement equipment (lockers) from Systems & Space, Inc. for the new Police Facility, CIP Project No. 337-3142 in the amount not to exceed $39,939.49.

On April 26, 2005, by Resolution No. 2005-88, City Council approved the contract documents and authorized the City Manager to execute an agreement with Systems & Space, Inc. in the amount of $188,451 plus a 10% contingency for law enforcement equipment (lockers).

On September 27, 2005, by Resolution No. 2005-231, City Council accepted the work of Systems & Space and authorized the City Clerk to file notice of completion with the County.

The police department originally purchased eighty-six law enforcement equipment lockers for the employee locker rooms inside the new Brentwood Police Facility. A total of fifty-nine lockers were installed in the men’s locker room while the remaining twenty-seven lockers were installed in the woman’s locker room. Since occupying the new police facility, the police department has increased personnel, and as a result there is only one available locker left in the men’s locker room. Two new police officers will be starting in less than thirty days and we are in the hiring process with several additional police officer candidates; therefore, the additional lockers that are being requested are needed to accommodate future employees. Staff is also recommending that the additional lockers be purchased through Systems & Space Inc. due to the fact that they are a reputable firm with years of experience and they are the firm who provided the original lockers. Systems & Space Inc. as the manufacturer has the specifications of the existing lockers and are most capable of manufacturing, painting, and installing the new lockers so they match the existing lockers. Lastly, Systems & Space Inc. customized the original lockers on site and fitted them at the location and they will custom fit the new lockers as well so they match the existing lockers.

Funds for the additional lockers are available within the approved 2005/2006 – 2009/2010 Capital Improvement Budget, New Police Facility Project CIP 337-3742.




WHEREAS, an increase in police personnel has resulted in current personnel utilizing all but one locker in the men’s locker room; and

WHEREAS, the police department has new officers scheduled to start which will fully occupy all existing lockers in the men’s locker room; and

WHEREAS, several additional police officer candidates are in the hiring process and new lockers will be needed to accommodate future employees; and

WHEREAS, Staff has obtained a bid from and experienced firm, Systems & Space Inc.; and

WHEREAS, Staff recommends that these additional lockers be purchased through Systems & Space Inc., the original equipment manufacturer, in addition to the fact that they are a reputable firm with years of experience; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of Brentwood that the City Manager is authorized to execute an agreement for purchase and installation of additional law enforcement equipment (lockers) from Systems & Space, Inc. for the new Police Facility, CIP Project No. 337-3142 in the amount not to exceed $39,939.49.
