Agenda Title:

Council action is requested to issue a purchase order for two (2) lime slaking systems from Integrity Municipal Systems, LLC in the amount of $286,500.00; and issue a purchase order for one (1) lime slurry pump assembly and appurtenances from Cogent, Inc. in the amount of $41,947.00, for the Water Department.  Expenditures will not exceed budgeted amounts.

Council action to issue a purchase order.

The Water Department utilizes paste lime slakers for conversion of dry pebble lime in the treatment process at Courtney Bend Water Plant. These slakers are a key part of the Water Department’s ability to provide for reliable operation of the Courtney Bend Water Plant and provide potable water to the City. The existing lime slakers no.2 and no.3 have reached the end of their serviceable life, and require replacement.  The project includes replacement of a lime slurry pump and appurtenances that work with the lime slakers.


The Procurement Division issued an Invitation to Bid (ITB) on July 26, 2017, for the replacement of the lime slakers and lime slurry pump.  Two (2) bids were received by the August 18, 2017 deadline.


The bid received from Integrity Municipal Systems, LLC met the minimum requirements of the ITB for the replacement of the lime slakers, which includes the addition of 316 stainless steel construction (versus 304 stainless steel) to ensure a more durable product.  The bid received from Cogent, Inc, met the minimum requirements of the ITB for the replacement of the lime slurry pump and appurtenances. Staff recommends award of lines 1 and 2 to Integrity Municipal Systems, LLC, and award of line 3 to Cogent, Inc.


Approval of this item authorizes the Procurement Manager to issue change orders up to a total of ten (10) percent of the original authorized amount providing appropriations are available.
