Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: The purpose of this ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Department of Finance and Management to modify the contract with The Lion Electric Corp. for one Electric Powered Automated Side Loading Truck.

The Department of Finance and Management, on behalf of the Department of Public Service, solicited a Best Value Procurement bid for one Electric Powered Automated Side Loading Refuse Truck. An evaluation committee consisted of two (2) representatives from the Department of Public Service and one (1) from the Division of Fleet Management that provided technical expertise.
