Please find attached for your consideration a resolution that authorizes a sole-source purchase order to Carrier & Gable, Inc., of Farmington Hills, Michigan, for traffic signal materials and supplies. We are requesting $627,000.00 related to the following projects, as well as normal maintenance supplies:

The advantages of sole-source supply include reduced inventory requirements, as well as the need to train technicians in the repair of only one type of product.

Carrier and Gable, Inc. is in compliance with the requirements of the City's Non-Discrimination and Living Wage ordinances.
