Referred by: Engineer Tim Ujvari
Assistant Engineer, John Schneider was in attendance to explain this matter. He said that this referral is similar to one that was made a year ago. NOACA is providing the possibility of Grant money for the TLCI Implementation. The City’s share for the project would be $60,000 which would come from the Issue 6 Fund. The Grant amount would be for $290,00. The total cost of the project would be $350,000. The limits on the project would be the Downtown Area, 2nd Street; new crosswalks and new lighting. The City was successful in the last 2 applications and hoping to be successful in this one as well.
Davis moved, Cerra seconded to recommend an Ordinance authorizing the Mayor to apply for and accept, if offered, Grant Funding, (TLCI Grant) Emergency clause applies for application deadline.
Referred by WWPC Superintendent Terry Korzan
Mr. Korzan stated the plant has one Vactor Truck that will be returned back to the dealer because the 5-year lease is up. Another Vactor truck is 14 years old and the jet part of the truck works but the vac part of the truck does not. So to keep the compliment of vactor trucks at 4, they are asking for permission to lease 2 new ones from Jack Doheny Companies. The annual lease payment for each truck will be $54,234.44. We would have 2 brand new trucks for 5 years for a total cost of around $250,000 for each truck. The leasing program is working very well. Once the trucks are around 7 years old, maintenance issues start happening to the trucks and it’s best to replace them before the expense of repairs.
Moved by Craig and seconded by Davis to recommend authorizing the Mayor to enter into a 5-Year Lease for two (2) new Vactor Model 2115 Combination sewer cleaning trucks. Money has been appropriated.
