Strategic Plan Goal(s)
Safe Communities
Reason for Recommended Action/Background
The Justice Campus has an Auger House that houses a massive grinder, called the muffin monster, to grind up materials that should not typically be flushed into the system by inmates in the jail.  The muffin monster grinds up and removes the material before it enters the overall city sewage system.

On September 28, 2021, General Services was approved by the Board to use general fund contingency to reimburse the department for significant repairs completed to the muffin monster in early July 2021.  The repairs included the installation of an upgraded 11-blade grinder.  Since that time General Services has continued to work with a consultant to weigh the best options and practices to avoid such significant repairs in the future.  

With the installation of the new upgraded 11-blade grinder, the consultant's recommendation is to replace other existing parts of the overall system, such as the Vaughn pumps, and to implement a yearly maintenance agreement.  Based on these two (tier 1 and tier 2) recommendations, General Services is cautiously optimistic the system will be sufficient should the system be overwhelmed again and could eliminate the need for additional equipment in the future.  General Services will continue to monitor the system and report back if that is not the case. 

The total cost for the replacement of the additional parts to the overall system and the first year of the maintenance agreement is $82,220,  which was not previously budgeted in the General Services Facilities Division 2021-22 budget.  On-going yearly maintenance costs of $2,200 will be budgeted through the County's regular budget process.
