Harmony City Council Report: Council accepts ambulance bid


Fri, Jul 14th, 2006
Posted in Government

At their July 11 meeting, the Harmony City Council examined two bids that were submitted during the citys request for proposal (RFP) period for a new ambulance. Both bids were for a 2006 Ford Chasis, E-450. Taylor Made Ambulances submitted one bid for $76,542.00, after trade-in of the citys old ambulance. Taylor ambulances are manufactured in Newport, AR and the nearest service location is in Elmhurst, IL. Ninety-Four Services Inc. submitted the other bid for a Life Line ambulance that would cost $61,249.00 after trade-in. Ninety-Four manufactures and services their ambulances in Sumner, IA.

Representatives from Harmonys ambulance crew were available to explain the bids and answer questions. They reported that the Ninety-Four bid was significantly lower because they are located closer to the city than Taylor. Additionally, they have been using the Life Line brand of ambulances for the past few years and have been satisfied with Ninety-Fours services and maintenance. Following this report the council approved the Ninety-Four bid.

Norby Development

City administrator Jerome Illg reported that he and Richard Nethercut, city attorney, had completed the Dave Norby development agreement. Illg is now obtaining estimates for the water and electric extensions. He explained that there is some concern of losing uniformity among the materials and set-up of the electrical expansions and suggested it would be to the citys benefit to use the same vendors that have been used previously for this service.

Council member Gerald Shuck recommended that the city should still obtain another bid, if the dollar amount is significant the city should at least consider that vendor even if they use different materials. Illg asked how the bid specifications would be drawn-up and how they would be analyzed, because of their complexity he felt an expert may be needed. Shuck recommended using a current bid to develop specification estimates and use Mayor David Kingsleys electrical knowledge to identify the best vendor for the project. Illg reported he would start collecting bids and update the council during their next meeting.

Illg reported that the water bid for the extension was approximately $7,350 for plastic pipe and $9,600 for iron. Council members discussed the pros and cons of using plastic or iron piping. Concluding this discussion the council determined that the extension should use plastic pipe but to ensure that the piping was .....
