Consideration and Action Regarding Approving a Cooperative Purchasing Contract with Rush Truck Centers for the Purchase of a 2023 Peterbilt 520 Refuse Truck for $348,830.19 with total expenditures not to exceed $350,000 in Accordance with the Terms and Conditions submitted to the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) in Contract Number HT06-20 for the Purchase from the Sanitation Capital Reserve Funds -
Herschel Workman, Public Services Director
This truck was originally slated for the current fiscal year. During budget meetings, it was decided to put off the purchase for a year. We are currently having many maintenance issues with the older trucks we are utilizing for the routes and staff feels it would be best to order this truck now in light of the long lead time to receive it.
Staff is requesting Council authorize funds for the purchase from the Sanitation Capital Reserve to order a new sanitation refuse truck. Even with ordering it now, the lead time to receive would be August or September of next year. That is how long it is taking to complete the build. Also, in light of the rising cost of steel, we have the advantage to lock in the price now.
Staff would like authorization to purchase this truck utilizing the Houston-Galveston Area Council cooperative purchase contract number HT06-20, which is valid until May 31, 2022, for $348,830.19 and total expenditures not to exceed $350,000.
I move to approve and authorize the Mayor to execute a Cooperative Purchasing Contract with Rush Truck Centers for the purchase of a 2023 Peterbilt 520 Refuse Truck for $348,830.19 with total expenditures not to exceed $350,000 in accordance with the terms and conditions submitted to the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) in Contract Number HT06-20 for the purchase of refuse vehicles from the Sanitation Capital Reserve Funds.
