Resolution to Approve the Purchase of a John Deere Wheel Loader from AIS Construction Equipment Corp. (MiDeal - $244,208.89)
Memorandum
The attached resolution authorizes the purchase of one John Deere model 624P wheel loader and related accessories for a total cost of $244,208.89 through the State of Michigan MiDeal cooperative purchasing contract #071B7700090 for use by the Public Services Area, Public Works Unit.

The Public Works Unit uses this loader in its water utility repair and maintenance operations.

The new loader will be placed in the Fleet Fund for replacement purposes and, based on a 15-year replacement schedule, the Water Fund will have an annual replacement costs of approximately $23,600.00.
