TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL

FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS

DATE: JUNE 21, 2005

SUBJECT: CITY MAINTENANCE CONTRACT EXTENSIONS

RECOMMENDATIONS

Approve a one-year extension for FY 05 – 06 to Bell Building Maintenance for Building Maintenance, Bennett Landscape for Median Maintenance, TruGreen Landcare for Roadside Maintenance, and TruGreen Landcare for Park and Trails Maintenance

DISCUSSION

The city has entered into approximately 15 contracts for various maintenance services. In general these contracts have a term of three-years with the possibility of three one-year extensions by mutual agreement. At this time four contracts are subject to possible extension.

Based upon company performance staff recommends that each of the four contracts be extended for an additional year. For both of TruGreen Landcare’s contracts this will be the first extension. For Bell Building Maintenance this will be the second extension. For Bennett Landscape this will be the third and final one-year extension.

FISCAL IMPACT

In accordance with the contract there will be a price increase for each of the contracts in the amount of 4.8% equal to the Producer Price Index for Los Angeles / Long Beach. There are adequate funds identified in the adopted FY 05 – 06 Budget for these services.

Respectfully submitted,

Dean E. Allison

Director of Public Works
