RESOLUTION 2075 <br /> A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ANACORTES, <br /> WASHINGTON, waiving the state competitive bidding requirements for the <br /> purchase and or replacement of Flygt pumps and accessories in the sewer collection <br /> system, pursuant to RCW 39.04.280. <br /> WHEREAS, RCW 39.04.280 provides that the City, by resolution, may waive <br /> competitive bidding requirements when a purchase is clearly and legitimately limited to <br /> a single source of supply, or when the purchase involves special facilities or market <br /> conditions. <br /> WHEREAS, The City uses a variety of Flygt pumps at pump stations in the <br /> sewer collection system and has designated Flygt pumps as the established standard for <br /> its sewage pump stations in the document titled "Sewage Pump Station Design <br /> Standards"; <br /> WHEREAS, installing a different brand of pumps would not meet the Sewage <br /> Pump Station Design Standards which have been established to ensure uniform <br /> operation and safety of the pumps stations; <br /> WHEREAS, to maintain the consistency of parts, ensure the warranty of the <br /> sewer collection system pumps, and avoid the cost associated with repairs to the system <br /> that may occur using non genuine original equipment manufacturer (Flygt) replacement <br /> parts, a supplier of Flygt pumps is required; <br /> WHEREAS, Whitney Equipment Company Inc. has provided the City of <br /> Anacortes with its existing Flygt Pumps, and Whitney Equipment Company Inc. is the <br /> sole source representative authorized to sell Flygt brand pumps; and <br /> NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of <br /> Anacortes, as follows: <br /> Section 1. The City Council of the City of Anacortes finds that replacing sewer <br /> collection system pumps with Flygt brand pumps clearly limits the City of <br /> Anacortes to a single source of supply, justifying the waiver of competitive <br /> bidding requirements. <br /> Section 2. The City Council of the City of Anacortes hereby waives the bidding <br /> requirements for the purchase, replacement, and or repair of sewer collection <br /> system pumps for use by the City of Anacortes Wastewater Treatment Plant and <br /> authorizes sole source purchasing from Whitney Equipment Company, Inc. <br /> Section 3. Any actions of the City or its officers prior to the date hereof and <br /> consistent with the terms of this Resolution are ratified and confirmed. <br /> Section 4. This Resolution shall be in full force and effect from the after its <br /> adoption and approval. <br /> Resolution 2075 Page 1 <br />
