The Engineering Department has two large format machines in our inventory that are utilized by several Departments within the City. In 2009, the Engineering Department purchased the large format KIP 3100 black and white printer/scanner/copier primarily for the use of scanning large documents. In 2010 the Engineering Department purchased the Cannon IPF 810 large format color plotter. Due to their age, neither one of these devices are supported by the manufacturer and replacement parts are no longer available.
Over the past few years, Public Works has bid multiple skid steers with a guaranteed annual trade amount. This program has helped the departments be more productive by having a new machine under warranty with minimal downtown for repairs. The trade deals work out to a rate of $5-$11 per hour, which is less than typical rental rates for a similar piece of equipment.
1. Recommend council approve a budget amendment to the 2018 Street Department budget for the purchase of 2 new skid steer loaders; and
2. Authorize the Mayor to sign the budget amendment.
