RESOLUTION NO. 07-41
A RESOLUTION TO AWARD THE BID FOR TOWING AND STORAGE OF MOTOR VEHICLES FOR THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, AS PER SPECIFICATIONS, TO M&P TOWING (M&P AUTO SERVICE) AND TO AUTHORIZE THE VILLAGE MANAGER TO ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT THEREFOR.
WHEREAS, the Village of Granville has received proposals for towing and impounding services from companies interested in providing those services over the next three years; and
WHEREAS, M&P Towing and Yonker’s Towing submitted the two lowest proposals for the towing and impounding services; and
WHEREAS, it was not immediately evident from the proposals as to which was the lowest and best proposal because M&P Towing had lower rates for the towing of smaller vehicles and the storage of vehicles; but Yonker’s Towing had lower rates for the towing of larger vehicles; and
WHEREAS, the Police Chief looked at the Village’s towing and impounding history during 2006 and 2007 and determined that, based on that history, M&P Towing’s proposed rates would have resulted in a lesser charge than the rates proposed by Yonker’s Towing; and
WHEREAS, the Police Chief has recommended that the contract for the towing and storage of motor vehicles for the Police Department be awarded to M&P Towing.
BE IT RESOLVED by the Council of Granville, Ohio that:
Section I: The contract award for the towing and storage of motor vehicles for the Police Department, as per specifications, be awarded to M&P Towing (M&P Auto Service), as the lowest and best bidder.
Section II: The Manager should be and hereby is authorized on behalf of the Village of Granville to enter into three (3) year contract agreement (enclosed Attachment A) with M&P Towing (M&P Auto Service).
Section III: This resolution shall take effect immediately upon passage.
Passed this 11th day of July, 2007.
