S January 2, 2008 TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS FROM: CITY MANAGER SUBJECT: WESTERN WATERWORKS PURCHASE ORDER INCREASE RECOMMENDATION: Increase the Annual Blanket Purchase Order with Western Waterworks from $25,000.00 to $50,000.00. BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS: iipWestern Waterworks supplies pipes, fittings and other water distribution 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. Western Waterworks is a primary source for these types of items because they offer competitive prices and have a good supply on hand. Escalating costs of materials and continued expansion of the city makes it impractical to limit the purchase order under $50,000. The City also receives the sales tax revenue benefit because Western Waterworks is located in the city. For these reasons, staff is requesting this increase. REVIEW BY OTHERS: This item has been reviewed by the Finance Department. FISCAL IMPACT: This increase is not a commitment to spend, rather an authorization to purchase material if necessary. Funding is available in the appropriate FY 2007/08 budgets. R-specffully submitted, Recommended by: . dg.• • 6.6..i.t (12 Dougl-s N.
