BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS AND SAFETY MINUTES

February 22, 2000

 

 

The Board of Public Works and Safety of the City of West Lafayette, Indiana met in regular session in the Board of Works Room at City Hall on February 22, 2000 at 11:00 a.m. Present were Jesse C. Andrew, III, City Attorney Robert L. Bauman, and Mayor Sonya L. Margerum, who presided.

Bid Acceptance: Four Wheel Drive Loader - Street Department

Street Commissioner Downey said that the Board of Works received bids last week for a 2000 four wheel drive front-end loader. There were two companies that bid, Rudd Equipment and MacDonald Machinery. Rudd Equipment had a low bid but it did not meet the specifications in weight and in engine horsepower. So that would make MacDonald low with a trade at $78,636 and I would recommend that the Board approve that bid.

City Attorney Bauman moved to have the Board reject the low bid of Rudd Equipment as unresponsive because it did not meet the specifications for weight and engine horsepower, and accept the next low bid from MacDonald Machinery Co., Inc. which was responsive to the specifications. That will be in the total bid of $78,636 including trade in of the Case loader/backhoe.

Motion seconded by Director Andrew, and the vote was AYE.

Hew Hire: Kevin Baxter - Sanitation Department

Street Commissioner Downey requested Board approval for the temporary part-time hire of Kevin Baxter at a pay rate of $11.50 per hour in the Sanitation Department. He will be hired part-time for 45-60 days and given time to acquire a CDL license, at which time, he will be considered for full time.

So moved by Director Andrew, seconded by City Attorney Bauman, and the vote was AYE.

Right-of-Way Purchase: Parcels #10 and #25 - Lindberg Road Project - Engineering Department

At the recommendation of City Engineer Snyder, City Attorney Bauman moved approval of two acquisitions of property for right-of-way from the Estate of Ray E. Scrifres on the Lindberg Road project, Parcel #25 in the amount of $5,380.00 and Parcel #10 in the amount of $26,910.00. Motion was seconded by Director Andrew, and the vote was AYE.
