RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider authorizing a sole source purchase from HydroHoist Marine Group, Inc for 75 PowerPort base units for Coastal Parks.
BACKGROUND
The RV Park Facility was damaged beyond repair as a result of Hurricane Harvey.  This specific item addresses rebuilding of the parks electrical grid specifically the RV pedestal hook ups.  All the facilities associated with the RV/Tent camping sites fell under the category of being self insured, unlike the park headquarters which had wind and flood coverage.  As such Coastal Parks worked diligently with FEMA and TDEM representatives to cover the recover costs under the FEMA Public Assistance Grant Program.  During our many field inspections the FEMA representatives presented us with some ideas on mitigating our recovery elements.  FEMA representatives actually brought to our attention the mitigation product being presented here today as an alternative referencing our County neighbors in Galveston County where FEMA had approved the same product for mitigation post Hurricane Ike.  Thus, Coastal Parks set out to contact this sole source provider and get quotes on their product which was then submitted to FEMA for approval, which FEMA subsequently approved.
DISCUSSION
Purchase in the amount of $73,513.96.
