DEPARTMENT:  Finance    


CONTACT INFORMATION:   Arche McAdoo, Finance Director, 918-7439; Daniel Snipes, Interim Public Works Director, 918-7432     


INFORMATION:  Per Town Code Section 3-1 (b)(9)(i) the Town Council is required to approve contracts for purchases of goods or services that exceed $60,000 and contracts for construction or repairs that exceed $150,000.


The following two contracts exceed these limits.


1.                     Contract for Speed Table Updates

This contract includes reconstruction and updates to existing speed tables to meet Town standards, along with the installation of new speed tables on Starlight Drive and Tallyho Trail.  The attached document provides a listing and map of the locations.  The contract is expected to be completed by December 30, 2022.  Funding is available in the Powell Bill Fund.




2.                     Contract for Municipal Solid Waste Disposal

Since closure of the Orange County landfill, the Town has had to truck its solid waste to another location.  This is an annual contract for municipal solid waste disposal fees for fiscal year 2023.  The bid is based on a per ton rate and the estimated FY23 cost is $300,000.  GFL Environmental provided this service in FY22.  The contract ends on June 30, 2023.  Funding is available in the Solid Waste Division’s FY23 budget.




FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:  FY23 funds are budgeted in the Powell Bill Fund and the Solid Waste Division for these contracts.          


RECOMMENDATION: Approve a resolution (Attachment A) authorizing the Town to enter into contracts with Daniels Inc of Garner and GFL Environmental.
