The company is requesting $70,000 from the City and $70,000 from Palm Beach County.  (Not too difficult to guess which company this might be…)

  • Resolution 9, 2018 –  Approve a resolution supporting the Florida League of Cities Municipal Home Rule and confirming the City’s commitment to the principals of Municipal Home Rule.

  • Purchase Award – Long distance telephone service for the Police Department – 3 year contract valued at $119K
  • Purchase Award – Transportation Services – Openly bid contract for Recreation Department for as-needed transportation of Summer Camp and other recreational attendees and participants. 5 Year contract, not renewable – for $183.5K
  • Purchase Award – Piggyback/Access contract for Purchase of Generators for City Hall, PD, RYEC, and Sandhill Crane Golf Club for $482K.  (note – looks like this is being approved on Consent in advance of approving Ordinance 1, 2018 later in the agenda – which funds the purchase from the Budget Stabilization Reserve Account).
  • Purchase Award – Fleet Leasing Program – 5 year Piggyback/Access Contract – Administration – not to exceed $3 million “This program will result in the complete change-out of all current fleet vehicles, including police vehicles and public services vehicles, in five years. The City expects to enjoy savings from repairs, acquisition costs, running costs, etc., over the five-year-period. At the end of that period, the City will decide whether to continue with the program or return to its traditional method of purchasing vehicles. The program includes guaranteed sale prices for the used vehicles at the end of each cycle.”
