REPORT TO COUNCIL

SUBJECT

Title

Authorize the Issuance of a Purchase Order for an Articulating Telescopic Aerial Bucket Truck (F17-093)

 

Report

REPORT IN BRIEF

Approval is requested to authorize the issuance of a Purchase Order for one Altec Model AT41P Articulating Telescopic Aerial Device in the amount of $175,791, including all taxes and fees for use by the Department of Public Works Operations Division.

 

EXISTING POLICY

Pursuant to Chapter 2.08 of the Sunnyvale Municipal Code, Council approval is required to approve bids greater than $100,000. Pursuant to Section 2.08.220, the City may utilize cooperative purchasing agreements initiated by other public or quasi-public agencies.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW

The action being considered does not constitute a “project” within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15378(a) as it has no potential for resulting in either a direct physical change in the environment, or a reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment.

 

BACKGROUND AND DISCUSSION

The articulating telescopic aerial vehicle is used for maintenance and replacement of City street lights by the Department of Public Works Operations Division. The existing 2002 International 4700 30’ Aerial Platform Truck has reached its useful life and is up for replacement.

 

Investigation into various trucks used for street light repairs by neighboring cities resulted in the recommendation to replace the current truck with an Altec model articulating telescopic aerial vehicle similar to the 2002 International that meets all of the City’s operational and safety requirements. Staff recommends purchasing the truck through the National Joint Powers Alliance, a purchasing cooperative which leverages volume pricing.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

Budgeted funding is available in Fleet Equipment Replacement Account.

 

Funding Source

The City’s fleet vehicles are funded by the City’s General Services Fund, Fleet Services Sub-Fund which provides for ongoing fleet equipment replacement.

 

PUBLIC CONTACT

Public contact was made by posting the Council agenda on the City's official-notice bulletin board outside City Hall, at the Sunnyvale Senior Center, Community Center and Department of Public Safety; and by making the agenda and report available at the Sunnyvale Public Library, the Office of the City Clerk and on the City's website.

 

RECOMMENDATION

Recommendation

Authorize the issuance of a Purchase Order for Articulating Telescopic Aerial Bucket Truck, in the amount of $175,791, including all taxes and fees, to Altec Industries, Inc.
