Agenda Title:

Council action is requested to issue a purchase order to Foley Industries Inc, for the

$60,906.64 purchase of a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 5500 through Roberts Auto Plaza Inc for the Water Department.


Council action to issue a purchase order.


The purchase of the Chevy Silverado 5500 4x4 is used to replace asset number 3803 which is a 2008 Ford F450 truck which is used for hauling cold mix asphalt for temporary street repairs and dirt for yard restorations, towing a skid loader and equipment, and for spreading salt/clearing snow around the reservoirs and towers. This truck is currently at 74,000 miles and has several outstanding mechanical issues that make replacing it a better option from an economical standpoint.

The vendor providing the equipment is Roberts Auto Plaza, who provided a quote based on a Mid-America Council of Public Procurement (MACPP) cooperative contract. Purchases under cooperative agreements are authorized by Section 8.06.004, Paragraph 5, of the Independence City Code, which states that when cooperative bids or contracts are used, they will first have been established pursuant to generally accepted governmental purchasing practices and the competitive bidding process.

Fiscal Impact:

Fiscal Impact. The fiscal impact to the City is $60,906.64. Funding is included in the fiscal year 2021/22 adopted budget, account numbers E (4840-5404).
