SUBJECT:
Award Contract for Sodium Bisulfite Purchase and Delivery
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends the Mayor and City Council authorize a contract with Hill Brothers Chemical Company for the Purchase and Delivery of Sodium Bisulfite for the City’s Water Reclamation Facility (WRF.) Purchases under this agreement shall not exceed the annual amount budgeted for this purpose.
DISCUSSION:
Under operating permits for the WRF, the City is required to de-chlorinate the effluent water prior to discharge from the facility. Sodium Bisulfite is injected into the discharge to provide the required de-chlorination prior to discharge. The WRF uses approximately 48,000 gallons of this chemical annually for this purpose. A formal request for proposals was advertised by the City to procure the purchase and delivery of Sodium Bisulfite for the WRF. In response to this solicitation, three responsible proposals were received. Staff reviewed the three (3) proposals and determined the proposal from Hill Brothers was the most advantageous to the City based upon qualifications and pricing. The price per gallon received from them is $1.25.  This Contract would be for a one (1) year period, with the option of renewal for two additional one-year periods at the City’s sole discretion.
FISCAL IMPACT:
The project fees will be funded from the Wastewater Operating budget, account 520-21-214-6233-10000, for chemical and horticultural supplies.
