<br />I <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Sponsored by: Janke <br /> <br />CITY OF SEWARD, ALASKA <br />RESOLUTION 2001-161 <br /> <br />A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SEWARD, <br />ALASKA, AUTHORIZING THE CITY MANAGER TO ENTER INTO A <br />CONTRACT WITH VALLEY DETROIT DIESEL ALLISON TO REBUILD <br />GENERATOR #4 AS OUTLINED IN THEIR PROPOSAL DATED <br />NOVEMBER 19, 2001 FOR AN AMOUNT NOT-TO-EXCEED $300,000 <br />WHICH INCLUDES START-UP EXPENSES AND RELOCATION <br />EXPENSES WITH A SEPARATE CONTRACTOR <br /> <br />WHEREAS, Valley Detroit Diesel Allison is the only factory authorized and trained <br />distributor on the West Coast, including Japan, for EMD machines; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, it is in the public interest to waive the normal bidding process per City Code <br />Section 6.10.115, Section 6.10.120, and Section 6.10.130, with the City Council making the <br />following findings: <br /> <br />(1) <br /> <br />it is in the best interest ofthe City to issue the purchase order because Valley Detroit <br />Diesel Allison is the exclusive Factory Authorized Distributor for General Motors - <br />Electro-Motive Division (EMD) and will rebuild Generator #4 with Genuine EMD <br />factory service parts and Factory Trained and Certified Technicians will perform and <br />complete the specified overhaul of the EMD 20-645-E3 engine per the EMD's <br />recommended procedures; <br /> <br />(2) the price of the quote received appears reasonable given the specifications and <br />completion date; <br /> <br />(3) a lengthy bid process would extend the time the generator would be inoperable, and <br />since it is important to have all 6 Generators on-line in the event of an emergency, <br />there is insufficient time to complete a lengthy bid process and obtaining a <br />significantly lower price is unlikely given the lead time and the specifications required; <br /> <br />(4) sufficient measures have been taken to protect the public interest by ensuring that the <br />City is receiving a reasonable price and will receive a rebuild that meets the City's <br />specifications within the necessary time constraints; <br /> <br />(5) the cost of this overhaul will ultimately be paid by the benefitting utility customer. <br />
