Title: Consideration and possible approval to purchase two vehicles from Ford Country in the amount of $66,089.00.
Petitioner/Presenter: Neil C. Krutz, P.E., Deputy City Manager/Ron Korman – Fleet and Facilities Manager
Recommendation: Staff recommends Council approve the purchase of these Ford vehicles in the amount of $66,089.00 from Ford Country.
Financial Impact: $88,000.00 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 these two vehicles.
Total Costs: $66,089.00
Fund: Motor Vehicle Maintenance    Account: 604070
Program: 1702 Vehicle & Equip Replacement Plan (13-7500)
Amount: $66,089.00    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 $66,089.00 to replace one vehicle for the Fire Department, and one for Public Works Maintenance.

Background: This request is for replacement of vehicles that have reached the end of their life cycle. These vehicles have had their life cycle extended, and now the maintenance costs are exceeding the worth of the vehicles. The vehicles being replaced are 312B, and 434C.

Analysis: In sourcing the vehicle, if approved, the City would be using the joinder provision allowed under NRS 332.195, and purchasing the 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 vehicle 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 these vehicles from Ford Country in the amount of $66,089.00
