APPROVED: ATTEST: -iUCY—OR /V CITCRETARY Alter Industries, Inc. 7th of June 2106 South Riverside Road St. Joseph, MO 64507-9799 Our 60th Year (816) 364-2244 1989 Enclosed is the estimate you requested, Jim, . . . through Tom Twombly. This job would take approximately two weeks here at Altec's facility. As stated in the note, we would attempt to repair the lower left cylinder, but if it could not be '��G repa L I he c , to repla e all that cylinder WiL - -a r- uilt unit would th CD L' be $1100. The other repairs are constant in nature and would only change if more were found when the unit is disassembled. As is the case whenever a job of this magnitude is undertaken, there are other items that may require attention. Altec would recommend you replace the control lines in the boom with the new style 5/16" colored tubing. The cost for this would be about $750. When the cables and rods are pulled, the other hoses can be checked better and may also need replacement. If you have any questions about this estimate, please call me at (816)667-5493 or at the main office at (800)541-7723. We at Altec look forward to working with the City of Georgetown on this and future projects. Thank you for the opportunity to provide you with information about our services.

CITY OF GEORGETO] MEMOR TO: Mayor and City Council City Manager FROM: Jim Briggs�e' Director of Public Utilities RE: Electrical Bucket Truck Repairs Recently, the City of Georgetown received their Annual Inspection on all of their electrical equipment. During this inspection, two (2) particular bucket trucks within the fleet, were cited by violations of safety laws. These particular violations stemmed mainly from mechanical failures due to the extent of use over their life. After receiving notification of non compliance, the City request that manufactures of this equipment quote the prices for their repair. One of these pieces of equipment, a bucket truck manufactured by Altec Industries, is in need of repairs. Attached to this memorandum is a letter and break down of work needed in order to repair the bucket truck for safety standards. The total price for the repairs of this particular piece of equipment, could run as high as $6,645.00. This would be for the ultimate repair job if there was total replacement of the particular parts. Otherwise, the repairs could be as low as $4,795.00 for repairs. With the possibility of this work exceeding $5,000.00, 1 will need Council approval in order to authorize this expenditure. Since there is only one (1) manufacturer of Altec equipment in the United States, which is Altec Industries in St. Joseph, Missouri, the price quoted on this estimate is FOB, St. Joseph, Missouri. Therefore, there will be some expenditures above the maximum limit of repair in transporting the vehicle to and from the factory location. The expenditures for this travel were not budgeted in the Annual Operation and Maintenance account. Therefore I am requesting an additional $500.00 for travel expense. City staff is requesting your approval of the repairs to the Altec bucket truck in the maximum amount plus travel and authorize Altec Industries, as a sole source of repairs, to begin this repair as soon as possible. These repairs are expected to take 3-4 weeks. 11RHMIRM JB/ss attachments
