Title
Resolution to Approve the Purchase of Vehicle Upfitting Parts from Cruisers Inc. for a 27 Month Period (ITB #4663; Not To Exceed $120,000.00 per FY)
Memorandum
The proposed resolution authorizes the purchase of vehicle upfitting parts, for a period beginning upon Council's approval and expiring on June 30, 2023, from Cruisers Inc. A purchase order in an amount not to exceed $120,000.00 per fiscal year would be issued for FY21, FY22 and FY23, subject to the availability of funding in FY22 and FY23.
