However, when the City <br /> recently replaced these 2 trucks on their normal 7 year replacement cycle it became <br /> evident that the Curotto cans should be on the same replacement cycle; and <br /> WHEREAS, staff investigated doing a full rebuild of our existing units and <br /> found it to be cost prohibitive. A full in-house rebuild would cost the City an estimated <br /> $30,000-$40,000 each in parts alone and require a vast amount of internal labor to <br /> perform; and <br /> WHEREAS, brand new Curotto cans cost approximately $43,000 each plus <br /> shipping and tax, and have a 4-5 month lead-time; and <br /> WHEREAS, SWS Equipment, LLC. currently has 2 Curotto cans in stock that <br /> were traded in. These units have never been used but they now must be sold as used. <br /> The price would be $33,000 each plus shipping and tax; and <br /> WHEREAS, SWS Equipment, LLC. indicated that this deal was only available <br /> for a short period of time and would be sold to the first purchaser; and <br /> WHEREAS, the Public Works Operations Manager believes the price for these <br /> two "used" Curotto cans is a highly favorable price and would be sold to another party <br /> before the City has the time to comply with formal bidding requirements; <br /> NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of <br /> Anacortes, Washington, as follows: <br /> Section 1. The City Council of the City of Anacortes, Washington, finds that the <br /> purchase of these two "used" Curotto cans clearly limits the City of Anacortes to <br /> a single source of supply and special market conditions,justifying the waiver of <br /> competitive bidding requirements. <br /> Resolution 3075 Page 1 <br />
