Published on Tuesday, March 26, 2024 | 5:42 am

As part of Monday’s Consent Calendar, the City Council voted to authorize the City Manager to enter into a contract for staff and youth programming uniforms with Collegiate Promotions Inc. in an amount not to exceed $98,931 for a three-year contract with two one-year extension options subject to the approval of the City Manager. If all options are exercised, the total contract value is $164,885.

The Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department provides recreational and educational opportunities to the community. The department needs uniforms for after school program staff, fitness instructors, sports coaches, seasonal staff, special event staff and volunteers, and general office staff; as well as for youth programming such as tiny tots, cheer, and summer day camps. Various uniform needs were identified in the project including staff polos and t-shirts, jackets, beanies and hats, as well as shirts for Youth Ambassadors, R.O.S.E. Interns, Boxing Camp, Parks After Dark, Recreation Aides and Teen Center participants. A large volume of youth t-shirts are ordered annually for summer day camp participants so they can be easily identified while on field trips.

Here are the remaining items on Monday’s consent calendar:

  • A resolution establishing one new classification and salary and updating the salaries of 25 existing classifications. The Human Resources Department’s Labor Relations and Classification & Compensation Division is responsible for managing classification and compensation work for the City. Periodically there is a need to update or add job classifications and salary rates as duties and the operational needs of the City change over time and the marketplace adjusts. The City’s Manual of Personnel & Administrative Rules establishes a comprehensive process for classification submission in which the Human Resources Department reviews, approves, and provides recommendations on classification requests.
  • Authorize the City Manager to enter into a contract with Velocity Vehicle Group for the purchase of six automated side loader refuse packers, and one rear end loader for a total of $3,310,403 and with PB Loader for the purchase of one utility truck for $91,630 for a grand total of $3,402,033. The Department of Public Works, Resource Recovery & Recycling Division uses RCNG automated side loading refuse packers, rear end loaders and utility stake bed trucks to collect residential mixed waste, organic waste, and recyclable materials from more than 26,000 residential customers on a weekly basis. Six RCNG automated side loading refuse packers, one RCNG rear end loader, and one utility stake bed truck are in need of replacement. The refuse vehicles being replaced are ten years old or older and have reached the end of their useful life. Upon delivery of the replacement refuse vehicles, these vehicles will be sent to auction per City policy. The estimated total salvage value of $36,000 will be returned to the Refuse Collection Fund. Attachment A contains the vehicle condition report. On June 21, 2010, the City Council adopted the 2010 Integrated Waste Management Operations Plan which outlines six goals to be achieved to ensure the City provides quality, cost-effective, and innovative services. Goal one calls for the City to provide effective vehicular assets through the management of repairs and timely vehicle replacements with alternative-fuel vehicles to ensure the availability of service to residents. In accordance with the Operations Plan, staff recommends replacement of eight vehicles that have met their useful life often years and have incurred high maintenance costs. The replacement automated side loading and rear end loading will be powered by RCNG and the utility truck will be electric powered.
  • Reject all bids received on January 9, in response for pool maintenance services for the Honorable John J. Kennedy and Villa Parke pools. Submitted bids ranged between $96,913 and $1,132,750 for pool maintenance services. Staff recommends that the City Council reject all bids due to unclear specifications that resulted in vendors bidding on differing units of measurement. Staff will refine the specifications and set revised parameters for the scope of work and readvertise the project to obtain new bids.
  • Contract award to Penhall Company to furnish labor and equipment for the saw cutting of concrete and asphalt pavement for an amount not to exceed $2,859,032 for the Water and Power Department.

On January 11, 2024, a Notice Inviting Bids for saw cutting of concrete and asphalt pavement was published in the Pasadena Press, as well as posted on OpenGov. The posting generated notices to all vendors who have previously registered with the City for this particular commodity class. A total of 15 vendors downloaded the specifications. A total of one bid was received by the bid due date, with no bids received from local contractors.
