Title: Consideration and possible approval to purchase one 2012 Chevrolet four door 4X4 pickup from Champion Chevrolet in the amount of $35,504.25.
Petitioner/Presenter: Neil C. Krutz, P.E., Deputy City Manager/Ron Korman, Fleet and Facilities Manager
Recommendation: Staff recommends Council approve the purchase of this Chevrolet vehicle in the amount of $35,504.25 from Champion Chevrolet.
Financial Impact: $50,000.00 was budgeted in Fund 1702; KSA 130660 Other Enterprise Capital Projects; Program 13-7500 Vehicle and Equipment Replacement; Account 604070 Capital Equipment Furnishings for the replacement and upfitting of this vehicle.
Total Costs: $35,504.25
Fund: Motor Vehicle Maintenance    Account: 604070
Program: 1702 Vehicle & Equip Replacement Plan (13-7500)
Amount: $35,504.25    Budget Status: Budget Exists
Business Impact (Per NRS 237):
A Business Impact Statement is not required because this is not a rule.
Agenda Item Brief: Equipment Services is requesting authorization to spend $35,504.25 to replace one vehicle for the Police Department.

Background: This request is for replacement of a bomb squad vehicle #475A that has reached the end of its life cycle. This vehicle has had its life cycle extended, and now the maintenance costs are exceeding the worth of the vehicle.

Analysis: In sourcing these vehicles, if approved, the City would be using the joinder provision allowed under NRS 332.195, and purchasing these vehicles utilizing the State of Nevada bid. The State of Nevada bid has historically been the most competitive. Utilizing the “joinder” provision allows the City to precisely define the vehicles needed while foregoing the need to formally bid the item.

Alternatives: 1. Council could approve this purchase as outlined by staff. 2. Council could deny this purchase. 3. Council could direct staff to provide alternatives to this purchase.

Recommended Motion: I move to approve the purchase of one 2012 Chevrolet 4X4 pickup from Champion Chevrolet in the amount of $35,504.25.
