Title
Authorizing the Mayor to enter into the necessary contracts for capital equipment; authorizing the expenditure of $175,000 from the Expendable Demolition Trust Fund for the purchase of one (1) used 2008 McCloskey 621RE Trommel Screen for the Department of Public Service, Division of Streets, Bridges and Harbor; and declaring an emergency.

Body
SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
The Division of Streets, Bridges & Harbor demolished 467 structures in 2017 and 377 year-to-date for 2018. To complete the demolition lots, SB&H has been utilizing compost made from leaves collected city-wide each year. After the leaves are composted, foreign material, garbage, and/or debris are left in the material and it needs to be removed. Currently, the compost piles are cleaned by hand or an operator utilizes a bulldozer to pick out garbage and debris after spreading. With the purchase of this machine, SB&H will have the capability of screening all foreign material out of the compost, and thus, leave a clean dirt-like material available for use on all city projects. This screen could also be utilized to blend compost with other materials in order to create a topsoil product, ultimately saving money and making more usable soil that would benefit the entire city. This screen is a more feasible option to accomplish this compost cleaning goal, versus purchasing a new machine, which would cost $350,000.

The purchase request will be from Maverick Environmental Equipment LLC, located in Alma, Michigan. Similar machines have been included as comparables and are listed below:

2017 McCloskey 628 from Sherwood, Oregon $320,000
