Agenda Item Brief: Staff is requesting approval of contract staffing to help maintain Parks, Park Rentals, Special Events, Street Maintenance in the amount of $440,000 in support of the 2013/2014 Maintenance program.

Background: Hiring contract staff will enable Maintenance to perform essential duties for Parks and Street Maintenance that were not completed in FY2012/2013 as a result of inadequate resources. It will also allow for Special Events support to be provided at lower cost.

Analysis: The City will be utilizing the “joinder” provision allowed under RFP/ Contract number 2029/14026. Specifically, the City will be using a contract for contract staffing issued by the State of Nevada to Manpower. The State’s bid represents high quality contract staffing and the City is able to join this contract and leverage those higher volumes to our benefit. The Community Services Department plans to utilize the $440,000 to supplement Parks and Street Maintenance; Special Events setup, maintenance and tear down; and Graffiti Removal in the following amounts: • $220,000 for Parks Maintenance to mow, pick up trash, edge turf, irrigation maintenance and one temporary employee to run the Community Service program • $160,000 for Street Maintenance, including crack sealing, street patching, fill pot holes and cleaning alleys • $40,000 to support Special Events and clean up for Park Rentals • $17,000 for Graffiti removal • $ 3,000 for WC Sheriff work crews to trim shrubs, pull weeds and clean play equipment


Recommended Motion: I move to approve the use of contract staffing in the amount of $440,000 during FY13/14.
