Chief Rich McLaughlin presented the recommendation to award the contract Red Light Camera Automated Enforcement, as outlined in a memorandum dated March 22, 2018. In 2013 the City of Laurel executed a contract renewal with American Traffic Solutions, Inc. (ATS) for five (5) years.  That contract expires on July 8, 2018.  ATS currently has a contract with the City of Annapolis, Maryland, which was executed in 2015.  This contract is available to the City of Laurel for the same terms and conditions for a period of five (5) years with a possible extension for another five (5) years.  The current processing fee per citation is $45.00 which will be reduced to $29.50, due to newer technology.  The contract has been reviewed by the City Solicitor.  After discussion, the Council was in agreement to award the contract at the Mayor and City Council Meeting on Monday, April 9, 2018 at 7:00 PM.

 

 

Joseph Ajayi, Assistant Director of Public Works presented the recommendation to extend Contract LA 17-03 Espina Paving, Inc. Add Citywide Asphalt Patching Repairs, as outlined in a memorandum dated March 23, 2018.  The project includes repairing and restoring asphalt on various streets around the City.  It was recommended the Mayor and City Council award the extension for Contract LA17-03 to Espina Paving, Inc. in the amount of $70,000.  Awarding the contract extension will save the City $7,000 in mobilization fees.  After discussion, the Council was in agreement to approve the extension of Contract LA17-03 to Espina Paving, Inc. at the Mayor and City Council Meeting on Monday, April 9, 2018 at 7:00 PM.
 
 
Joseph Ajayi, Assistant Director of Public Works presented the recommendation for Fleet Acquisition - Laurel Police Department - Three (3) marked police cars, as outlined in a memorandum dated March 26, 2018.  This purchase will not increase the fleet.  Before assembling the bid package for the purchase of these vehicles, the Department contacted several agencies to inquire if there wee any current contracts for models that equaled or exceeded the City's needs.  Hertrich Fleet Services Inc., was awarded the State of Maryland Contract (#001B8400161) for the purchase of three (3) Ford Police Interceptor Sedans.  Funding for the purchase is provided for with insurance proceeds.  The cost for one (1) marked Ford Sedan is $30,259.  It was recommended the Mayor and City Council award the purchase of these vehicles for a total cost of $90,777.  After discussion, the Council was in agreement to award the contract at the Mayor and City Council Meeting on Monday, April 9, 2018 at 7:00 PM.
