Title

Resolution to Approve a Purchase Order for the Rental of Refuse Trucks from Premier Truck Sales & Rental Inc. (Sourcewell - NTE $171,600.00)

Memorandum

The attached resolution approves the rental of refuse trucks at a total cost not to exceed $171,600.00 from Premier Truck Sales & Rental for use by the Public Services Area, Public Works Unit. Premier Truck Sales & Rental of Valley View, OH was awarded a contract for rental refuse trucks under the Sourcewell (#091219-THC) cooperative purchasing programs. The Sourcewell contract expires November 15, 2023.

 

The City rents refuse trucks each fall as part of our leaf pickup program. It is not cost effective for the City to own and maintain this additional equipment year-round so rental equipment is an excellent solution. Additionally, the City will have occasion to rent equipment to deal with short term needs related to specific events (student move-out, etc.) or that result from a vehicle being out of service for repairs for an extended period. 

 

Public Works has requested the rental of five 25 yard rear load refuse trucks for three months each for leaf collection. At the rate of $7,700.00 per month, those trucks rent for $115,500.00.  Pickup and delivery currently runs $500.00 per truck, each way, for an additional $5,000.00. With the uncertainty of the leaf collection season, we include a contingency of three truck months, with pickup and delivery fees, at a cost of $26,100.00 for an estimated total for the leaf collection program of $146,600.00. An additional $25,000.00 has been added to the resolution to cover unanticipated refuse truck rentals for FY23.  This may include special events, unexpected breakdowns, or additional routes needed for refuse trucks. 

 

Premier Truck Sales & Rental Inc. complies with the requirements of the City’s Conflict of Interest and Non-Discrimination ordinances.

 

Budget/Fiscal ImpactFunding for the rental of refuse trucks is available in the proposed FY23 Solid Waste Fund operations and maintenance budget, if so approved.
