BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS: Public Facilities & Operations as well as other City Departments purchase supplies at 4. the Chino Hills Lowe's hardware store. These supplies include electrical, lumber, tools, and concrete related supplies. The blanket purchase order provides the opportunity for staff to purchase a variety of low cost materials that fall under the required bidding level. The City uses Chino Hills Lowe's Hardware store as a primary source for these types of items because of the sales tax revenue benefit. The prices charged are similar to other local sources. As the City expands and ages, the overall cost for this type of material increases. For this reason, staff is requesting an increase to the purchase order. REVIEW BY OTHERS: This item has been reviewed by the Finance Department. FISCAL IMPACT: The increase is not a commitment to spend, rather an authorization to purchase material if necessary. Items purchased at Lowe's are funded out of the appropriate Fiscal Year 2007/2008 budget. RIspectfully submitted, Recommended by: AghlIPP .6 gipWO gl. s .
