Body

________________________________________________________________________________

Summary:

On March 29, 2016 bids were received for the purchase of mowers and repair parts. The State of Kansas acted as lead agency and awarded the contract to Moridge Manufacturing, Inc. These units will be used by the Parks & Recreation Department for detailed mowing of park land and athletic fields.

 

Staff recommends award of contract to Moridge Manufacturing, Inc.

 

The mowers due for replacement require out-front mower decks.  This forward position allows for trimming under trees.  No Olathe vendors can provide this type of mower.

 

 

The mowers are being replaced as part of the regular replacement schedule as part of the 2019 budget. The mowers have paid $25,163 into the Vehicle and Equipment Replacement Fund (VERF) through lease fees. VERF fund balance will cover the additional $37,922.
