6. SALE OF SURPLUS STREET SWEEPER TO SURREY

The Public Works department has a surplus 1999 model Elgin Pelican street sweeper with 9744 hours on it that was replaced in 2017 with a new sweeper. We inquired at the time of bidding the new sweeper as to the value of the 1999 model sweeper as a trade in and the suppliers stated that they do not have sales or use for a sweeper that is 18-19 years old, so the trade in value of this unit was not of any value. Since this time, Surrey has inquired about purchasing any excess or surplus equipment that we may have as they contract their street sweeping out and would like to have their own sweeper.

In the past, the City has donated surplus equipment like older sweepers, garbage trucks to other entities such as the Park District.

It is recommended the City Council approve the sale of a 1999 Elgin Pelican street sweeper to the City of Surrey for $5,000.00.

13. MODIFICATIONS TO PHASE MI-1 – MOUSE RIVER FLOOD PROTECTION PATHS AND OPENINGS

In August, 2017 the City Council’s requests were presented to the SRJB regarding pedestrian modifications to the flood protection plan. The SRJB has revisited the request for these items and this is outlined in the attached letter to City Manager Barry. To summarize, all of the items seem to be addressed, with the exception of the additional opening at the Anne Street Bridge.

It is recommended the City Council choose one of the following three options:

  1. Do not add an opening at the Anne Street Bridge – $0 cost.
  2. Add a new 8’ opening at the Anne Street Bridge – no modifications to existing Broadway opening – $59,500.00 City funds.
  3. Add a new 8’ opening at the Anne Street Bridge and narrow the openings at the Broadway opening from 16’ on each side to 8’ – $7,800.00
Option 2 or 3 would both be considered improvements not flood related and would need to be funded 100% with a funding source identified by the city.
