Body
SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
The Division of Streets, Bridges and Harbor uses packer trucks for hauling purposes in leaf collection, street sweeping, blight cleanup, and alley cleaning. Throughout the year, the Division has had packer trucks go out of service, with five (5) trucks going out of service within one month that were not repairable. The Division had issued an RFP to rent packer trucks, but no bidders came back as a result. Attempts were made from the Division, as well as from the Fleet Division, to rent packers from multiple vendors, but due the continued demand and shortage of trucks, no trucks were found to be available. Through our searches, the Division was able to secure three (3) used packer trucks from Bell Equipment and two (2) new 25-yard packer trucks from Cerni Motors for purchase.
