SUPPLEMENTAL AGENDA

 

I.          MOTION (This item replaces item #37 on regular City Council agenda)

 

1.             Consideration to award a lease purchase contract  (FY04-070) to the low bidder, Sames Motor Company, Laredo, Texas, in the total amount of $1,179,821.67 for the acquisition of forty seven (47) replacement police sedans; and authorizing the City Manager to sign any and all lease purchase documents.   

a.        Financing will be secured through Ford Municipal Lease Corporation. The City is requesting that these vehicles be delivered fully equipped with light bars, sirens, decals, and a fire suppression system for the rear fuel tank.  Only the radios will be installed after the vehicles have been delivered to the City.  This will expedite the process to activate units for patrol duty.  The lease purchase payments have been allocated in the Police Trust fund.

 

II.         EXECUTIVE SESSION

The City Council hereby reserves the right to go into executive session at any time during this public meeting, if such is requested by the City Attorney or other legal counsel for the City, pursuant to his or her duty under Section 551.071(2) of the Government Code, to consult privately with his or her client on an item on the agenda, or on a matter arising out of such item.

 

2.             Request for Executive Session pursuant to Texas Government Code Section 551.072 in order to deliberate on the pending contract for the acquisition of the Slaughter Farm property, which is subject of Resolution 2004-R-037, Item XI (22) of agenda, because deliberation in an open meeting would have a detrimental effect on the position of the City Council in negotiations with third persons; and return to open session for possible action.
