April 08, 2021 City Council Regular Meeting
6. Authorize the City Manager to Execute a Contract Renewal for the Maintenance of 17 Variable Frequency Drives (Used During the Water Treatment Process) with Siemens Industry, Inc. in the Amount of $47,629 (Event No. 6875)
Strategic Priority

​Recommend approval to renew an annual maintenance agreement with Siemens Industry, Inc. in the amount of $47,629. The agreement will be used by the Public Works and Water Resources Department to maintain variable frequency drives used to control water pumps for raw water and finished water distribution. The frequency drives control the flow of sewage through pumps and help wastewater treatment plants achieve the required flows necessary to operate effectively.  This maintenance agreeement services 17 drives currently in the system. The maintenance includes two inspections per year and covers troubleshooting, cleaning, service repairs and reporting. 

This is a sole source because Siemens Industry, Inc. is the manufacturer of the drives and only allows Siemen’s certified factory trained technicians to maintain its equipment.  

S.S. Siemens Industry, Inc. (Waukesha, WI)(D) 

(D) Indicates non-local, non-minority owned business.
