A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF HOMER, ALASKA, AUTHORIZING THE PURCHASE OF A 2-STAGE SNOW BLOWER ATTACHMENT, UTILIZING GENERAL FUND MONIES PREVIOUSLY APPROPRIATED IN THE AMOUNT OF $124,105.
WHEREAS, In 2009, $125,000 was approved for the purchase of a replacement 2-stage snow blower attachment to replace one of the City’s 25+ year old units (Ord. 09-16); and
WHEREAS, Due to 2009 General Fund cash flow concerns, this equipment purchase was put on hold last year; and
WHEREAS, The ability to dependably provide for snow removal is jeopardized by continued deterioration of the City’s existing old snow blowers; and
WHEREAS, The Public Works Director determined that there are only three vendors in the state that sell and service this equipment, and solicited and received a quote from each of these vendors; and
WHEREAS, Public Works has reviewed these bids and determined that the lowest quote provides a blower best suited for the City’s needs; and
WHEREAS, The Council finds that the procurement procedure described above was an appropriate sole source procurement procedure under HCC 3.16.060(l), that sought competition to the maximum degree possible as required by HCC 3.16.060.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of Homer, Alaska, authorizes the purchase of a new 2-stage snow blower attachment in the amount of $124,105, and authorizes the City Manager to execute all appropriate documents.
PASSED AND ADOPTED by the Homer City Council this 22th day of November, 2010.
