Title
Resolution to Approve the Purchase of a Mini Rear Load Refuse Truck from Fredrickson Supply LLC (CoPro+ - $127,074.00)
Memorandum
The attached resolution authorizes the purchase of one Loadmaster Elite 8 cubic yard rear load refuse body on a Ford F-550 chassis for a total cost of $127,074.00 through the CoPro+ (Michigan Association of Counties) cooperative purchasing contract #2018-WR-060-F for use by the Public Services Area, Public Works Unit.

The refuse truck listed in this resolution will replace an existing 2014 Hino 195 mini refuse truck (#6624) with 13,452 hours of use which has exceeded its useful life. The Public Works Unit uses the mini refuse truck to access small, tight, hard to get to areas that need service.

Fredrickson Supply LLC, Grand Rapids, Michigan was awarded contract #2018-WR-060-F by the Michigan Association of Counties CoPro+ cooperative purchasing program.

Fredrickson Supply LLC complies with the requirements of the City's Conflict of Interest and Non-Discrimination ordinances.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Based on the use and condition of this truck, it is being replaced at 8 years instead of the planned 10 years. Adequate funding for the purchase of this vehicle is available in the FY22 Fleet Services Fund and the FY22 Solid Waste Fund Operations and Maintenance budgets .

The new mini refuse truck will be placed on a 7-year replacement schedule which is consistent with our other refuse trucks. This is a reduction from the current 10-year replacement schedule which is too long based on the amount of use this truck gets. The Solid Waste Fund will have an annual replacement cost of approximately $19,800.00.
