BID AWARD: SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT UNIFORMS
Washington County Purchasing Agent Karen Luther and Sheriff's Department Major Sam Bilotti brought this request, to approve the annual bid award for uniforms for Washington County Sheriff's Officers to the sole bidder Red the Uniform Tailor, Inc., of Lakewood, NJ for the Total Sum Bid of $128,204.50, based on estimated quantities of each uniform piece at per unit bid prices. The Sheriff's Office is one agency consisting of correctional, patrol, and judicial. It is the department's belief that it is best for employee cohesiveness to standardize and have all of the enforcement staff in the same type and color of uniform. The uniform change can be accomplished in phases by utilizing the remainder of this fiscal year's uniform allowance plus next year's requested funding. The following year the department can provide officers with the Class "A" blouses, and they will then be fully outfitted. The measure was approved by unanimous vote.
CONTRACT RENEWAL: SERVICES AT LANDFILL SITES
Purchasing Agent Karen Luther and Solid Waste Department Director Bob Davenport brought this request, to renew Contract Services at Transfer Stations and On-Site at the Forty-West Landfill with the sole responsive, responsible bidder, Peck's Refuse Disposal, LLC of McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania for trash hauling, which includes servicing the Forty-West Landfill plus Alternate No. 1 for cardboard transports. Total cost for FY '08 is projected at $330,520.00 an overall increase of 8%. The contract is for a one-year period that commenced August 1, 2005 with an option by the County to renew for up to four additional consecutive one-year periods. Peck's is requesting the price adjustments due to its increases in operating expenses. The measure was approved by unanimous vote.
