The Parks and Recreation Department is requesting the Council to approve an emergency replacement of the department 60" Z mower from the State Contract with Toro in the amount of $8,500.00.
This request is needed at this time due to hydraulic pump failure.
The Z mower has a suggested life span of 5 years.
The Z mower is currently 7 years old.
The cost to repair the mower is $3,200.00.
The cost to replace the mower is $8,500.00.
Based on the age and condition of the mower and the likely hood of additional failures the expenditure of $3,200.00 doesn't appear to be a wise investment.
Approve the funding of $8,500.00 to replace the Z mower from the State Contract with Toro.
