Resolution to Approve the Purchase of Duncan Electronic Parking Meter Equipment from Duncan Industries (not to exceed $87,000.00)
Your approval is requested for the purchase of Duncan electronic parking meter equipment for the installation of parking meters in the previously approved Central Business District areas outside the DDA boundaries.
On June 15, 2009, City Council approved the installation of parking meter equipment in various locations within the city via Resolution #R-09-233. Wall Street was one of the areas identified for installation of equipment for 115 spaces. As staff began the field work for the installation, it was noted that the original count of 115 spaces did not account sufficiently for drive approaches and no-parking areas. The space count for Wall Street has been updated to 71 spaces for metering. This decrease in metered spaces will decrease our projected meter revenue by approximately $80,000.00. Staff has identified an additional area for meter installation that will be presented to council during discussions about potential budget adjustments for the current fiscal year.
Duncan Parking Technologies is the sole manufacturer and provider of the Duncan Eagle 2100 Electronic Parking Meter Mechanism with the smart card debit feature implemented throughout the City of Ann Arbor. The Duncan Eagle 2100 Electronic Mechanism is fully compatible with the Duncan housings we currently have installed on the streets of Ann Arbor. All sales of Duncan Parking technologies are made direct to the end user.
Duncan Industries received Human Rights approval on September 21, 2009.
The purchase is to be funded from the approved FY 2010 Public Services Area General Fund operations and maintenance budget.
