Request/Justification for Emergency Purchase
Bids were taken for the upgrade of the Town's WWTP Belt Press on February 24, 2017. The single submittal was from Evoqua Water Technologies, LLC. It was determined that they were a sole source of materials for the rebuilding of the press. Later in scheduling it was determined that Evoqua did not possess the equipment to move the existing press or set the rebuilt press. Coalfield Services, located in Wytheville, submitted a quote to remove the existing press, rebuild with materials purchased from Evoqua Water Technologies, LLC and install the rebuilt press. They are a sole source with this capability in the area. This has become an emergency situation for the continuing operation of the WWTP and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Therefore, the Town will purchase materials from Evoqua Water Technologies, LLC at the bid prices and have Coalfield Services move, rebuild and reinstall the press at their quoted price. Coalfield Services has estimated a time frame of 2-3 weeks.
