SUMMARY:Since 1993, the District has received vehicle repair and maintenance service from the City of Monterey's Mechanical Division.Current labor rates are $115.00 per hour, which is the same rate that is being applied for City of Monterey vehicle maintenance services. Repair parts are acquired through City of Monterey Mechanical purchasing and are charged back to MPWMD at cost plus 10%.Fuel rates are based on the City of Montereyís cost plus 5% to cover for their cost of pumps and software to maintain the fuel station. The existing agreement was signed in June 2012 and provided for annual renewals by mutual consent.The City of Monterey has proposed a five-year renewal agreement from August 8, 2017 through August 7, 2018 with five consecutive one year renewals after the one year term.The funds necessary to defray the expected vehicle and equipment maintenance costs are included in the Services and Supplies, Transportation section of the current fiscal year budget.This five year contract has a cost estimate of $75,000 (based upon $15,000 for each year).The total transportation amount budgeted for Fiscal Year 2017-2018 is $26,600, however, this includes amounts for services provided by entities other than the City of Monterey.

 

RECOMMENDATION:Authorize the General Manager or the Chief Financial Officer to execute a vehicle maintenance agreement with the City of Monterey for five years from August 7, 2017 through August 8, 2022.The Administrative Committee reviewed this item at its December 5, 2017 meeting and recommended approval by a vote of 3 to 0.

 

BACKGROUND:In January of 1993, the District contracted with the City of Monterey for vehicle maintenance.Since that time, the City has provided responsive and efficient repair and preventive maintenance service to the Districtís fleet of vehicles, trailers and other equipment.In August 1993, the contract was expanded to include the purchase of gasoline and diesel fuel from city pumps.†† Despite some increases over the years, costs to the District for fuels, labor, and parts have remained very competitive.The current hourly labor rate is $115.00 per hour, parts are provided at wholesale cost plus 10 percent and fuel is provided at cost plus 5%.Added benefits to continuing this outsourcing to the City of Monterey include the quality of the city's automotive service and preventive maintenance system, efficiency in tracking preventive maintenance and billing and convenience for staff due to the proximity of the cityís facilities to the Districtís main office.The current agreement, which was executed in June 2012, provided for annual renewals.
