Enabling/Regulating Authority

Background Discussion
On October 1, 2018, the Florida Sheriff's Association issued contract No. FSA18-VEH16.0 with Ring Power Corporation for trucks and heavy equipment. The contract was valid from October 1, 2018, through September 30, 2019, with two (2) annual renewal options.  The Sheriff's Association has exercised a renewal option extending the agreement term through September 30, 2020. The purchase authorization for two dump trucks that staff is presenting to the Commission is for a not-to-exceed total amount of $1,297,866.00. 

These two off road dump trucks will replace assets 52386 and 53618 that are at the end of their usable life and will be decommissioned. The new dump trucks will be used at the County landfill for multiple purposes. Some critical uses of this equipment include hauling all types of material such as cover dirt, refuse, and road building material on a daily basis per regulations for maintenance of the landfill. This specific type of truck hauls large volumes of material needed to support other heavy equipment operating at the landfill. In addition, the County is required, via permit by FDEP, to possess a redundant utilization of this essential equipment for landfill operations.
