This is a standard contract extension and funding increase ordinance for heavy equipment maintenance and repairs at the Dallman Power Plant Complex. Ordinance 095-03-22 accepted the lowest evaluated bid for Contract UE22-01-78 in the total amount of $300,000.00 with Roland Machinery Company (“Roland”) for the maintenance and repair of heavy equipment at the Dallman Power Plant. Utility personnel evaluated whether it was in the City’s best interest to re-bid or extend this contract. It was determined that extending the contract would be in the City's best interest. Ordinance 057-02-23 authorized a one-year extension with an additional $400,000.00 in funding. Again, Utility personnel have re-evaluated the situation and determined it would be in the best interest of the City to extend Roland’s contract for a second additional one-year timeframe for an additional $400,000.00. The maximum total amount payable under the said contract is $1,100,000.00. All other terms of the agreement remain the same. The Dallman Power Plant Complex uses this equipment in its coal-handling operations. The equipment also is used to clean and maintain the ash ponds, scrubber landfill, and filter plant lime ponds.

IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $2,826,064.22 FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES
This ordinance accepts Contract UE24-10-64 in an amount not to exceed $2,826,064.22 for the purchase of overhead wire for a five-year timeframe. The ordinance covers the anticipated need for overhead wire for upcoming maintenance and new construction projects of the Electric Division. Due to long lead times and rising costs of the wire, the Utility requires the ability to buy wire in greater quantities than in the past. The Utility recommends awarding this contract to all four (4) bidders on the contract (American Wire Group, LLC, Anixter Power Solutions, Brownstown Electrical Supply, and Power Line Supply Co.). This will allow the Utility to have choices based on both cost and lead times to fulfill demand. The ordinance total represents estimated quantities. The vendors are not guaranteed a minimum amount. Only materials needed during the contract period will be ordered.

AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING THE PURCHASE OF INVENTORY ITEMS FOR THE UNIT 4 PULVERIZERS FROM WOOD GROUP USA, INC. IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $140,070.00, FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES
This ordinance approves the purchase of inventory replacement parts for the Unit 4 pulverizers from Wood Group USA Inc. (“Wood Group”) in an amount not to exceed $140,070.00. These parts were recently used for a rebuild of Unit 4’s pulverizer. There is a long lead time to obtain these parts; therefore, it is a good practice to have a set of these inventory items in stock in the event of a failure. A failure could prevent the unit from operating at full load for 10-50 weeks. The inventory items are (3) Grinding Roller Tires for MBF-22.5 Pulverizer ($68,400.00), (3) Spherical Bearings for MBF-22.5 Pulverizer ($37,470.00), and (3) Radial Bearings for MBF-22.5 Pulverizer ($34,200.00). Wood Group is the OEM for these items. They are not a local vendor.

AN ORDINANCE AMENDING ORDINANCE 278-06-23 FOR RFP PW24-02 WITH P.H. BROUGHTON & SONS, INC. AND REYHAN BROS., D/B/A SANGAMO CONSTRUCTION CO. FOR STREET AND ALLEY REPAIRS FOR AN ADDITIONAL EXPENDITURE OF $1,000,000.00 FOR THE WATER DEPARTMENT AND $100,000.00 FOR PUBLIC WORKS FOR GRAND TOTAL NOT TO EXCEED $1,700,000.00, FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC WORKS
Due to water main breaks, service breaks, water main replacement projects and continuing aging infrastructure, contractors have been needed for street repairs. The Water Department has also had several large scale State of Illinois projects, developer funded projects and projects in conjunction with the railroad consolidation project that have required use of this contract. Due to staffing issues, the Department of Public Works has had to reduce interagency response in conjunction with this work, resulting in the increased use of this contract. Additionally, due to the cold and ice this winter, Public Works estimates it will expend its authorized limit prior to the end of the contract and is requesting an authorized expenditure increase. This is a time and material price contract that the City only pays when the Contractor is called out and work is required. This ordinance provides an increase in authorization for contract expenditures for street and alley repairs for supplementing Public Works crews when necessary to complete these repairs in a timely fashion. These funds are budgeted within the existing Water Department and Public Works capital and maintenance budget lines.
