Summary:

On June 22, 2017, twenty-nine (29) bids were received for the purchase of grounds maintenance vehicles, of which Vermeer Corporation was awarded the contract based on evaluations. NJPA-Sourcewell acted as lead agency for a national cooperative vehicle bid for grounds maintenance equipment, attachments, accessories and related services (contract# 062117-VRM).

 

The Parks & Recreation Department is requesting the replacement of one (1) 15” Brush Chipper with Tier 4 Final Engine to be used by the Parks Forestry Division for disposal of tree branches by recycling them into mulch.

 

The chipper (Vehicle ID # 43121303) is fully amortized and is being replaced as part of the 2019 Vehicle and Equipment Replacement cycle. It has paid $59,925 in lease fees into the Vehicle and Equipment Replacement Fund.

 

Staff recommends award of contract to Vermeer Great Plains.

 

Vermeer Great Plains is the assigned Olathe distributor by Vermeer Corporation equipment.
