AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING AND ACCEPTING A LETTER OF EXTENSION OF ONE YEAR FOR THE PURCHASE OF CHEMICALS FOR MERCURY OXIDATION, CAPTURE AND REMOVAL AT DALLMAN FROM NALCO COMPANY LLC AND AUTHORIZING ADDITIONAL FUNDING IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $1,820,000.00 FOR A TOTAL AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $6,278,600.00 FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIESOrdinance 212-07-15 authorized the purchase of chemical for mercury oxidation, capture and removal at the Dallman Power Plant from Nalco Company in an amount not to exceed $3,558,600.00 for a three-year period. When this contract was first written, Nalco and CWLP estimated cost based on the then current chemical fee rates to each individual unit. The estimates were based upon MerControl 7895 being fed only at Unit 33, and MerControl 8034 Plus being fed only at Units 31, 32, and Unit 4. Since this initial inception, it was decided to utilize the chemicals in all units to maximize mercury capture. The additional usage of the chemical has created shortages of funds. Ordinance 484-11-17 authorized an additional $900,000.00 in funding as an estimate to cover the cost of the increased usage of chemicals. It was anticipated that this funding would be sufficient to the end of the contract (July 2018) at an estimated cost of $100,000.00 per month. This additional funding increased the total contract amount to $4,458,600.00. However, this estimated amount has turned out to be lower than actual needs, resulting in a shortage in funds for June and July 2018. This ordinance is requesting a one year extension of the contract (through July 31, 2019), and additional funding in the amount of $1,820, 000. 00 to cover the funding for the remaining 2 months of the current contract and for the addition 1 year extension. This averages out to approximately $130,000.00 per month. Nalco Company has offered a Letter of Extension on the current contract through July 31, 2019. Nalco Company holds the patent on these chemicals and they are the only source in which we can buy them. This extension and funding increase will bring the contract amount to $6 278,600.00.

AN ORDINANCE APPROVING PAYMENT TO CONSTELLATION NEW ENERGY-GAS DIVISION, LLC IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $2,245,228.80 FOR THE PURCHASE OF NATURAL GAS THROUGH FISCAL YEAR 2019 UNDER AN EXISTING CONTRACT, FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIESThis is a standard, recurring ordinance for the purchase of natural gas. This ordinance approves payment in an amount not to exceed $2,245,228.80, to Constellation New Energy-Gas Division, LLC for the purchase of natural gas for the Interstate Combustion Turbine, Dallman Power Plant Unit No. 33 Scrubber, Dallman Power Plant Unit No. 4 Heating and Dallman lgniters through Fiscal Year 2019 under an existing Base Contract for Sale and Purchase of Natural Gas, as amended. This contract was approved under Ordinance No. 155-03-06 for gas supply to the Interstate Turbine-Generator, which requires natural gas for commercial operation. Ordinance No. 418-11 -10 approved Amendment No. 2 to the Base Contract in order to provide for deliveries of natural gas to the Dallman Power Plant Unit No. 33 Scrubber, Dallman Power Plant Unit No. 4 Heating and Dallman lgniters. The City's Natural Gas Proliance agreement remains in effect unless terminated by either party with 30 days written notice. Ordinance 215-07-15 changed the vendor name to Constellation New Energy-Gas Division, LLC due to a company merger. Since our usage of natural gas makes it extremely difficult to predict gas requirements, we buy on the daily spot market as needed. This fiscal year, we estimate our expenses will be $2,245,228.80. Last ordinance, 037-02-17, the Council authorized $2,200,9 4.00 for the purchase & delivery of the natural gas
