Business Impact (Per NRS 237):
A Business Impact Statement is not required because this is not a rule.
Agenda Item Brief: Staff is requesting approval to purchase two cab and chassis for the for the purpose of replacing two dump trucks used by Community Services Maintenance Division.

Background: This request is for replacement of two dumptrucks #529, and #530 that were purchased in 1994, and 1995. Both of these units have incurred extensive maintenance costs and are no longer a viable part of the City's fleet. This purchase is for the cab and chassis only; there will be a future agenda item requesting permission to purchase the dump bodies, plows and sanders associated with these two units. The decision to seperate these purchases was made in order to utilize the bid process while retaining uniformity with the snow removal equipment that already exists in our fleet.

Analysis: The City advertised for bids on November 23, 2011. Six bids were received by the bid deadline on December 8, 2011. The results of that bid are included as an attachment. The low bid by Tec equipment was not considered because the bid included a transmission that is unacceptable to the City based on the specifications of the bid which are also included as an attachment.

Alternatives: Council could direct staff to keep the current trucks and refurbish or continue to repair them.

Recommended Motion: I move to approve the purchase of these two cab and chassis from Silver State International in the amount of $249,200.00.
