Resolution to Approve the Rental of Heavy Equipment from Bell Equipment Company (MiDeal and Omnia - NTE $217,200.00)
The attached resolution approves the rental of heavy equipment, including refuse trucks and street sweepers, at a total cost not to exceed $217,200.00 from Bell Equipment Company for use by the Public Services Area, Public Works Unit.

This may include special events, unexpected breakdowns, or additional routes needed for street sweepers, refuse trucks or other needed equipment that is covered under the cooperative purchasing contracts.
