Agenda Report # 84


TO: Mayor and Councilors

SUBJECT: Purchase Authorizations

INITIATED BY: Finance Department


(A) REDEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR CLAFLIN SCHOOL – RFP NO. 14-0002

It is requested that Council authorize the execution of a lease agreement with Friends of Historic Claflin, Inc. (Columbus, GA) for the redevelopment of the Claflin School. Friends of Historic Claflin will redevelop and reuse this site by preserving the architecturally significant elements of the building, ensuring compliance with the deed restrictions and honoring the associated African American history.

The initial term of the lease agreement shall be for eighteen (18) months, with the option to renew for an additional 3 years. The initial contract period will allow Friends of Historic Claflin to accomplish phases II and III of the proposed restoration schedule. If phases II and III are successfully completed within the 18-month period, the agreement will be extended for an additional 3 years to allow Friends of Historic Claflin to accomplish phases IV, V and VI of the proposed restoration schedule. During the initial agreement period and the subsequent 3.5 year period, Friends of Historic Claflin must stabilize and secure the building, as well as, maintain the landscape of the property. In 1868 the property on which the current Claflin School sits was deeded to a group of trustees for the specific purpose of developing a school. A deed restriction was placed on the property ensuring that, should the school district cease utilization for educational purposes, title of the property would revert to the Mayor and City Council, and should the Mayor and City Council fail to utilize it for educational purposes, then the title would revert to the United States of America.

The Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands (the “Bureau”) was given the authorization in the same deed to erect a school on this site. The Bureau did construct a school on the site and, as a result, the site is a part of the City of Columbus’ Black Heritage Trail.

The original school burned and what you see today was built in the mid 1900’s. Even though the school is not original to the site, the main building that faces Fifth Avenue is still historic and maintains historical architectural features that must be preserved. Preserving the back building is optional.

On November 19, 2012, the Muscogee County School District issued a Notice of Abandonment. This relinquished the school district’s interest in the Claflin school site. On January 22, 2013, the Columbus City Council agreed to accept the property for a period of 12 months. Staff was charged with utilizing the 12 months to find a viable use for the property that would follow the deed restrictions.

On August 5, 2013, request for proposals postcards were mailed to seventeen (17) vendors and RFP specifications were posted on the web pages of the Purchasing Division and Georgia Procurement Registry. The RFP was advertised and opened. One proposal was received by Burt Development Company (Albany, GA) but the developer ultimately decided not to pursue the project due to the restrictions and the structure of the building.

A public meeting was held on April 22, 2014 to determine if there was additional public interest in developing the property. At the public meeting, a group of citizens requested the City retain ownership of the property for an additional six (6) months to allow the public the opportunity to pursue alternatives to develop the property.

Per Resolution No. 171-14, dated May 27, 2014, the City retained ownership of the Claflin School property for an additional period of six (6) months and established a new proposal due date of November 26, 2014. One proposal was received on November 26, 2014 from the following offeror:

Friends of Historic Claflin, Inc. (Columbus, GA)

The proposal was reviewed by the Evaluation Committee, which consisted of representatives from the City Manager’s Office, the City Attorney’s Office, the Finance Department and the Public Works Department. A representative from the Community Reinvestment Division and the Planning Department served as non-voting advisors.

The City’s Procurement Ordinance Article 3-110, Competitive Sealed Proposals for the procurement of Equipment, Supplies and Professional Services, governs the RFP Process. During the RFP process, there is no formal opening due to the possibility of negotiated components of the proposal. In the event City Council does not approve the recommended offeror, no proposal responses or any negotiated components are made public until after the award of the contract. A delineation of Friends of Historic Claflin’s proposal and projections have been submitted to the City Manager in a separate memo for informational purposes.

Funds generated by this lease will be deposited into: General Fund – Government Wide Revenue – Rental/ Lease Income; 0101-099-1999-REVN-4878.

(B) CHIPPER TRUCK – NATIONAL JOINT POWERS ALLIANCE (NJPA) CONTRACT

It is requested that Council approve the purchase of one (1) Chipper Truck [2015 Ford F750 Extended Cab Air Auto] from Altec Industries, Inc., (Birmingham, AL) in the amount of $82,920.00, by cooperative purchase via National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) Contract #031014-ALT.

An essential chipper truck (VMO 10292) was taken out of service a few months ago due to non-availability of parts for repairing the wiring harness. It was salvaged and sold in the last City auction. The user unit had to shut down a crew that cleans up debris on job sites after major storms. The chipper truck serves an important role in the removal and cleanup process. The vehicle will be used by the Urban Forestry & Beautification Division of the Public Works Department. This vehicle is being purchased via NJPA, rather than the normal bid process, due to the urgent need for this replacement vehicle.


The purchase will be accomplished via Request for Proposal (RFP) Contract #031014-ALT, initiated by the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA), whereby Altec Industries, Inc., was one of the successful vendors contracted to provide Public Utility Equipment with Related Accessories and Supplies. The contract, which commenced May 1, 2014, is good through April 30, 2019, with an option to renew for a fifth year at the discretion of NJPA. The National Joint Powers Alliance is a Service Cooperative created by Minnesota Statute 123A.21. This statute was created in 1978 and revised in 1995 to allow participating governmental and municipal agencies to reduce the cost of purchased goods by leveraging their combined purchasing power. The bid process utilized by National Joint Powers Alliance meets the requirements of the City’s Procurement Ordinance; additionally, cooperative purchasing is authorized per Article 9-101 of the Procurement Ordinance.

Funds are budgeted in the FY15 Budget: Paving Fund – Public Works – Right-of-Way Maintenance – Heavy Trucks; 0203-260-3120-ROWM-7723.

* * * * * *

(D) ANNUAL MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT AGREEMENT FOR THE OASIS SYSTEM

It is requested that Council approve payment to Tyler Technologies, Inc., Appraisal and Tax Division (Dallas, TX), in the amount of $98,795.00, for the annual renewal fee for OASIS Maintenance Support, covering the period January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015. Payment will be made in two installments in the amount of $49,397.50; the first payment upon approval of this resolution, and the second payment after July 1st.

This maintenance provides Information Technology Department, the Tax Assessor's Office and the Tax Commissioner's Office with software enhancements, documentation updates, Users Group Support and Hotline Support for the OASIS property tax and appraisal system. Maintenance has been budgeted and approved annually since the OASIS software system was purchased in 1985. The vendor is the developer of the software, and is therefore, the only known source to provide the maintenance support.

Funds are budgeted in the FY15 Budget: General Fund - Information Technology - Software Lease; 0101-210-1000-ISS-6541. The remaining funds for the second payment, due after July 1, will be carried over to the FY16 budget.

Per Resolution #193-14, June 10, 2014, Council approved the agreement for the web hosting services from qPublic LLC. There was no cost to the City.
