Title
Resolution to Approve the Purchase of Two Dual-Arm Automated Side-Loading Refuse Trucks from Fredrickson Supply, LLC. (Sourcewell - $756,560.26)
Memorandum
This resolution authorizes the purchase of 2 2020 Autocar ACX64 truck chassis with Labrie Expert 31-yard packer bodies and Dual Helping Hand reach arms at $378,280.13 each for a total cost of $756,560.26 from Fredrickson Supply, LLC ("FSL") for use by the Public Services Area, Public Works Unit.

A vehicle listed in this resolution will replace a 2014 Mack chassis with a Labrie packer body (#8642) with 10,373 hours of operation. Over its service life the total repair cost of the vehicle has exceeded 85% of its original purchase price.
