Item Title:


Purchase of DPW Backup Generator



Suggested Action:


I move that the Mayor and Council authorize the City Administrator to accept the proposal from Graybar for the purchase of a backup generator for the Department of Public Works facility for an expenditure not to exceed $130,000, pending legal review.



Summary Background:

In the Summer of 2021 construction was completed on the new Department of Public Works (DPW) facility. Staff have been outfitting the building with Fixtures, Furniture, and Equipment (FF&E) since occupancy was granted in July. One of the last major pieces of equipment to be procured is the backup generator. Once the generator is received it will allow the facility to be used as a 24-hour emergency operation center that can operate during inclement weather as well as manmade and natural disasters allowing the Department to fulfill its mission to the City.


Next Steps:

Issue Purchase Order and place the order.


Fiscal Impact:

Not to Exceed $130,000


City Administrator Comments:

Recommend approval.
