Explanation

1. BACKGROUND

The Department of Public Service, Division of Refuse Collection, utilizes 96 gallon, 300 gallon, 8 cubic-yard, roll-off containers, and other types as-needed, in its mechanized collection system for residential trash collection.  The Division also requires replacement parts for containers that are not covered by warranties.  The Purchasing Office has completed bidding or has established universal term contracts (UTC) for the purchase of these commodities. This ordinance authorizes the Director of Finance and Management to establish purchase orders for the Division of Refuse Collection from established Universal Term Contracts (UTC) or completed bids for the purchase of refuse collection containers and replacement parts.

 

This ordinance also authorizes the Finance and Management Director to associate all general budget reservations resulting from this ordinance with the following current, pending and future Universal Term Contract Purchase Agreements for Refuse containers for the Division of Refuse Collection:

 

Universal Term Contract Purchase Agreements:

300 Gal Automated Refuse Containers

96 Gallon Automated Refuse Containers

64 Gallon Automated Refuse Containers

Toter Container Parts

 

The above Purchase Agreement associations also require approval by City Council in order for the division to expend more than $100,000.00 in a fiscal year against them per City Code 329.19(g) (Procurement from a Universal Term COntract Exceeding One Hundred Thousand Dollars).

 

2. FISCAL IMPACT

Funding is available and budgeted within the Refuse Bond Fund, 7703.  It is necessary to amend the 2021 Capital Improvements Budget to align budget authority with the proper project.  The funds are appropriated.

 

3. EMERGENCY

Emergency action is requested to prevent an interruption in the supply of refuse containers and parts to ensure the continued delivery of refuse collection services to all residents.
