Title
Resolution to Approve a Purchase Order with Trojan Technologies for Replacement Parts at the Wastewater Treatment Plant ($85,000.00)
Memorandum
Your approval is requested to authorize a Purchase Order with Trojan Technologies in the amount of $85,000.00 for replacement parts to maintain the ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system at the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).

The WWTP utilizes UV light to satisfy its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit requirement for disinfection of the plant's final effluent. Replacing burnt and worn out parts (bulbs, ballasts and hydraulic components) is a recurring maintenance activity necessary for proper function of the UV system.

Trojan Technologies is the sole certified source from which specific system components for the WWTP's UV disinfection system can be purchased. Trojan Technologies received Non-discrimination approval on November 12, 2015, and submitted a Conflict of Interest Declaration on October 28, 2015.

Funds to finance this purchase are included in the approved FY 16 WWTP Operation and Maintenance Budget of the Sewage Disposal System.
