|Estimate Time:||Consent Agenda|
This action is to request approval from the City Council, as the Local Contract Review Board, to enter into a public contract with Solomon Corporation for Transformer Disposal Services. Solomon Corporation submitted the most advantageous proposal to the City.
|Staff Recommendation: |
Staff recommends that the Public Contract for Transformer Disposal Services be awarded to the Solomon Corporation as submitted in their proposal.
The Electric Department needs to dispose of 58 surplus transformers labeled as "JUNK" (standard industry term for old transformers that can not be rebuilt to today's standards).
Under the Ashland Municipal Code, the disposal of City owned surplus property having a residual value of more than $10,000 shall be subject to authorization by the Local Contract Review Board.
For this public contract, an informal Request for Proposal was the chosen solicitation method.
Some of the transformers - 26 each - were expensed in year's past, which means they are NIS (Not in Stock/Inventory), and the remaining 32 transformers will need to be expensed at a cost of $18,978.27 in the current fiscal year.
The Request for Proposal was mailed to eight (8) potential service providers, and four (4) proposals were received.
