AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING ADDENDUM II AND APPROVING OF A FIVE YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION UNDER PROPOSAL NO. UE13-47 FOR THE SALE OF BOILER SLAG PRODUCED AT THE DALLMAN POWER PLANT TO HARSCO METALS AND MINERALS, A DIVISION OF HARSCO CORPORATION FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIESOrdinance No. 114-04-13 awarded Proposal UE13-47 to Harsco for purchase of wet bottom boiler slag, a byproduct of the coal-fired boiler combustion process, produced at the Dallman Power Plant for 5 years. Harsco submitted the highest proposal to purchase up to 25,000 tons annually of material at $15.00 for a 5 year term with a price increase of $.025 on March 1•t each year. The current cost is $16.00 per ton. The original contract is nearing expiration. Harsco has offered a letter of extension for additional five years with some changes to the contract as listed in Addendum II. The provisions of the Addendum II provide Harsco to purchase all boiler slag produced by Dallman Units 31 & 32, minus 2,000 each year of the agreement; allows for the extension of the contract through 2/28/23; includes another 5 year extension if the parties mutually agree and have a 90 day written notice; removes the escalation in price of $.025 over the period of the contract, leaving the cost at the current $16.00 per ton and F.O.B. based on scale weights at the Harsco delivery point. All other terms of the contract remain the same. Research has showed that CWLP is not likely to get a better price than this $16. 00 for the boiler slag that Dallman plant produces and therefore would like to extend Proposal UE13-47 with the provisions of Addendum II. The utility anticipates receiving $1.6 million over the 5 year period of this agreement. . Harsco is not a local

AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING CHANGE ORDER #1 AND ADDITIONAL FUNDING IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $81,060.00 WITH FLSMIDTH USA, INC. FOR UNIT 33 SCRUBBER HYDROCLONE REPLACEMENT PROJECT FOR A TOTAL AMOUNT PAYABLE OF $161, 176.00 FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIESThis Ordinance authorizes Change Order #1 and additional funding for a total contract amount not to exceed $161, 176.00 with FLSmidth USA, Inc. ("FLSmidth"). FLSmidth was contracted under Ordinance 461-11-17 for Dallman Unit 33 scrubber hydroclones replacement project. Upon detailed engineering design it was determined that a dual feed hydroclone system would provide more efficient operation of the scrubber than the original proposed single feed hydroclone unit to serve both the North and South towers. The single unit would not allow for densities in both towers to be pulled at the same time which could result in loss of density control in both towers compromising the scrubber's operations. The dual feed system requires ·a second access platform so personnel can maintain the unit and obtain samples. The shipping costs have also increased due to the overall size of the dual feed unit in comparison to the original planned single unit. The initial purchase with FLSmidth for the single unit was for $80, 116.00. This Ordinance approves an additional $81 ,060.00 for the dual unit, for a total amount payable under said contract to $161 , 176.00. FLSmidth is not a local vendor
