SUBJECT:  

Adopt Appropriation Ordinance Increasing Estimated Receipts and Appropriations in the Water and Sewer Capital Projects Fund in the Amount of $2,860,000.00 from Available Funds, for the Purpose of Purchasing Additional Vehicles, Capital Equipment and Facility Repair and Replacement Needs for the Water Department (ALL COUNCIL DISTRICTS)


RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council adopt the attached appropriation ordinance increasing estimated receipts and appropriations in the Water and Sewer Capital Projects Fund in the amount of $2,860,000.00 from available funds, for the purpose of purchasing additional vehicles, capital equipment and facility repair and replacement needs.

 
DISCUSSION:

The Water Department serves more than 1.2 million people across Fort Worth and 32 surrounding cities.† The utility maintains many large and expensive capital assets across the city including five water treatment plants, one water reclamation facility, three raw water pump stations, seven high service pump stations, 21 booster pump stations and 31 lift stations in the system.† As these facilities and pieces of equipment age, they become more expensive to repair. †Some of these assets cannot be repaired any longer or are obsolete.

The Water Departmentís adopted Fiscal Year 2019 operating budget included funds budgeted for transfer to Pay-As-You-Go capital.† As capital projects and outlays are identified, the Water Department brings forward Mayor and Council Communications (M&C) to appropriate the transferred dollars in the capital fund.† These funds are to purchase replacement pumps, cone valves, generators, motors and other capital equipment at the water reclamation facility, a lift station and various water treatment plants and pump stations across the city.† †The purchase also includes five additional vehicles and two pieces of heavy equipment that will be used for managing assets, assuring safety standards and repairing aging sewer infrastructure. This M&C will provide the funding for these purchases in the appropriate capital fund.

A Form 1295 is not required for this contract because:  This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.
