Title: To authorize the Finance and Management Director to modify and extend the Water Meter Reading Equipment, Software and Services Universal Term Contract with Itron, Inc. for the option to upgrade equipment, software and maintenance; and to declare an emergency.
Explanation

This ordinance is to modify and extend an existing sole source option contract for the continued purchase of software, companion equipment and maintenance for an existing data capturing system for the Division of Water, the sole user. In 1987, Ordinance 2886-87 was passed authorizing the purchase of equipment from Itron, Incorporated for a data capturing system against contract number CT-09367. In 2005, Ordinances 0587-2005 and 1019-2005 were passed authorizing the purchase of new equipment from Itron, Inc. and modifying the contract (CT-09367/PR029519), to identify Itron, Inc. as a sole source provider for maintenance of the data capturing system used by the Power & Water Division for meter reading and billing. In 2007, Ordinance 0739-2007 was passed to include Universal Term Contract language and allow for multi-year extensions available through September 30, 2015. In 2014, Ordinance 1347-2014 was passed to modify the contract to allow for the addition of 100W Itron Electronic transmitters to the contract and to allow for two additional 1 yr. contract extensions through September 30, 2017. In 2008 and 2012, Ordinances 0385-2008 and 1333-2012 were passed to allow for the purchase of software, companion equipment, and maintenance that Itron no longer supported.

The Division of Water is currently continuing its Automated Meter Infrastructure (AMI) system planning efforts. Until a system is procured and implemented, the City must continue using our present Itron meter reading system to efficiently and effectively collect customer water consumption information in order to maintain accurate and timely billing. In addition to the maintenance and repair services, this modification will also add additional Itron equipment. This contract will allow for 4 additional 1 year contract extensions beyond September 28, 2017 on contract # FL003623 to allow the Division of Water time to implement a future AMI system.
