Resolutions

1. Council Bill/Resolution 1101-2019

A Resolution authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute and attest to a KONE Inc. Proposal to Supply Elevator, Escalator, Moving Walkway Maintenance, Repair, Modernization and Related Products, Services and Solutions under the U.S. Communities Program utilizing the Terms and Conditions of the City of Kansas City Master Contract (Reference GENRL-EV2516 dated December 1, 2018).

Explanation: The City currently has several stand-alone contracts with three companies for elevator maintenance. In an effort to increase efficiency, staff has looked into consolidating contracts. The City belongs to US Communities, now part of OMNIA Partners, the nation’s largest cooperative purchasing organization for the public sector, therefore we are eligible for pre-negotiated contract pricing under the U.S. Communities Program utilizing the Terms and Conditions of the City of Kansas City Master Contract (Reference GENRL- EV2516 dated December 1, 2018). Proposed units and equipment price for eight (8) elevators is $1,662 per month for a total of $19,944. The City of Kansas City Master Contract is for a 6-year initial term (the first 3 years are fixed price; years 4, 6 and 8 escalate 3.25% for labor adjustment) with five 1-year renewal options. Our current contracts include oil and lube only, and any maintenance, parts, and labor including call outs are paid at a premium. We have the Alternate Option to this proposal to add the Moline Library and Centre Station Parking Ramp for an additional $350/month when current contracts expire. By entering into this proposal, the City will receive substantial savings in contractual repairs. Additional documentation attached.

Fiscal impact: Annual savings of approximately $8,000, with a greater level of service. Funds are budgeted in the following accounts: #447-0851-439.04-26, 310-1712-434.04-26, 010-0821-423.04-26, 010-0823-423.04-26, Maintenance Contracts and #447-0851-439.04-25, 310-1712-434.04-25, Contractual Repairs.

2. Council Bill/Resolution 1102-2019

A Resolution authorizing staff to invest the necessary time to study the operations and maintenance for the Rock Island Arsenal drinking water treatment plant on a short-term basis with the intent of a longer range plan to connect to Moline’s water treatment plant, water distribution system, storm water system maintenance, and acquire cost estimates to be used to develop a concept agreement to be evaluated by the United States as they consider engaging with Moline in an Intergovernmental Service Agreement (IGSA) with the Rock Island Arsenal.

Explanation: Public Works staff has engaged in surface level discussion with the Rock Island Arsenal (RIA) Garrison Commander and his staff regarding the potential for Moline to perform water and sewer operations and maintenance activities on the Island. In order to proceed, staff would need to conduct a detailed study of operations and maintenance documentation provided by the Army. Staff would need to develop a rough cost estimate by mid-September of 2019. Public Works is seeking authorization to invest the necessary time to study the operations and maintenance for the RIA water treatment plant on a short-term basis with the intent of a longer range plan to connect to Moline’s water treatment plant, water distribution system and storm water system maintenance. If projected costs are in line with Army estimates and quantities, the next step would be to develop the concept agreement.

Fiscal Impact: Building a partnership that grows Moline’s financial base by expanding customers.

3. Council Bill/Resolution 1103-2019

A Resolution authorizing the Mayor and the City Clerk to execute and attest to an agreement with the Urban Land Institute (ULI) for a five-day Technical Assistance Program (TAP) to evaluate a series of questions pertaining to future developable land in the I-74 Realignment Area.

Explanation: In January 2019, Renew Moline applied for the Technical Assistance Program (TAP) to the Urban Land Institute for a two-day TAP to evaluate a series of questions pertaining to future developable land in the I- 74 Realignment Area. Those questions were:

 What should the city’s acquisition strategy be for the former IDOT parcels?

 Are there particular sites that should be prioritized for development, and what should the city’s support of those be?

 What is the optimal mix of uses for those parcels/sites?

 What are the important development sites that could spur redevelopment and/or function as anchors to the newly-developed I-74 realignment area?

ULI staff attended a day-long meeting in Moline on March 28, and recommended a national (5-day) panel because of the scale of the opportunity and the time required to conduct research necessary to put forth a complete report. The total program cost is $135,000. ULI will rebate $10,000, Renew Moline will contribute $20,000, and the remaining balance of $105,000 will be paid from TIF 1 funds.

Fiscal Impact: Up to $105,000 from TIF 1 funds
