16. Authorize the City Manager to Purchase Parts and Equipment for the Repair of Lift Station 35 From Graybar Electric Supply in the Amount of $34,656.75 (Event No. 8292)
Strategic Priority

Recommend approval to procure parts and equipment for Lift Station 35 from Graybar Electric Supply in the amount of $34,656.75.

This purchase is needed for the parts and equipment to upgrade the sanitary sewer lift station 35 off Windsor Road which serves the Windsor Forest Neighborhood, Coffee Bluff, White Bluff, the Village/Rio/Armstrong and Paradise Park neighborhoods. Lift Station # 35 assures sewer service to the residents of these neighborhoods and pumps the sewage to the Wilshire Water Reclamation Plant on Largo Avenue. The electrical parts include reduced-voltage soft starts, transformer controls, switches, wire and other electrical parts, equipment and supplies. The components in this upgrade will allow the station to accommodate 3 each 88 HP pumps, up from the current maximum 60 HP pumps. Each sanitary sewer lift station includes pumping, piping, mechanical, electrical, odor control and failsafe systems and emergency power generators. If these operations don't occur, public health and public safety will be put at risk and will result in violations of State NPDES (National Pollution Elimination System) permit, which could also result in State Environmental Protection Division or Federal Consent Orders or Decrees and fines.

Per Section 2-4154 of the City’s Purchasing Ordinance, the City may purchase goods or services through the use of a state or cooperative agreement. The contract used for this procurement is a US Communities Government Purchasing Alliance. It was competitively bid by US Communities Government Purchasing Alliance and awarded to Graybar Electric Supply
