At this week's City Commission meeting, Commissioners considered authorizing the City Manager to execute an agreement for the purchase of Caterpillar D7R.

On February 6, 2023, (Resolution 23-8103) the City Commission approved the 2023 sub-CIP. In that action the City Commission approved the purchase of eighty two (82) items under Vehicles and Equipment from the Sales Tax Capital, Sanitation and Solid Waste Funds for various departments for a total estimated cost of $2,032,326 plus a $250,000 allocation to be used for Parks Vehicle and Equipment purchases in 2023.

In February of 2023, staff solicited and received bids for many items including bids on (1) dozer for Solid Waste. Staff felt the bids did not meet the specifications as set forth and on March 27, 2023, staff requested and the City Commission approved the rebid of the dozer.

Staff received two bids during the rebid process for the dozer and are recommending the award to a bid that is not from the lowest bidder for the noted reason(s). The recommended bid is under budget.


The motion to approve the purchase of the dozer was approved 5-0.
