<br />CITY OF SEWARD, ALASKA <br />RESOLUTION 2000-133 <br /> <br />WHEREAS, ifthe piling is not ordered immediately, it will not be available for the Small <br />Boat Harbor Repair and Renovation Capital Project and may jeopardize the timely and cost effective <br />completion of this project; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, it is in the public interest to ensure that piling is available to complete the <br />renovation project in a timely and cost effective manner promoting continued and increased marine <br />activity within the Small Boat Harbor and benefiting the community through economic stability, job <br />growth and other related economic impacts resulting from the timely completion of the repair and <br />renovations to Small Boat Harbor; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, Seward City Code ~6.1O.115 provides for exemptions from competitive <br />procurement procedures, and the City Council may approve such contracts by motion or resolution; <br />and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, the type, size, and quantity ofthe product constitutes specialized products, and <br />an emergency situation makes the delay incident to competitive bidding unreasonable and, therefore, <br />the requested purchase is exempt under Seward City Code ~6.10.120(A)(2) from competitive <br />procurement proceedings; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, Seward City Code ~6.10.120(A)(5) also provides an exemption for supplies, <br />materials, equipment or contractual services which can only be furnished by a single dealer and the <br />City has located only one supplier and producer that can meet the product specifications and the <br />City's time constraints; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, under Seward City Code ~6.10.130, the City Council finds, for the reasons <br />stated herein, that the public interest would best be served by not requiring competitive bids; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, there is a relatively small amount of other piling necessary for the project and it <br />is a much simpler task to purchase the 12" (l7ea) and 18"(4ea) piling along with the 16" piling from <br />the same vendor; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, if separated out, construction contractors would have to bid a small amount of <br />piling in the construction contract bid and arrange separately for fabrication and delivery, increasing <br />the cost and overhead and duplicating efforts; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, in buying all of the piling from one source, the construction contractor will <br />only have to arrange piling pick up and shipment from one location, reducing cost, eliminating <br />duplicative overhead and making the bid process simpler and even for all bidders; and <br />
