2. New Business

(a) Community Centre Refrigeration Plant Tender

The arena refrigerant plant was included in the 2008 capital budget. Two bids were received from the tendering process. Cimco Refrigeration from Edmonton Alberta provided a bid of $629,986.00 and Startec Refrigeration Services from Calgary submitted a bid of $711,909.00. The budgeted amount for the project is $661,250.00 and is included in the $2.286 million dollar Loan Authorization Borrowing Bylaw recently adopted by council.

The Recommendation:

That Council motion to enter a contract with Cimco Refrigeration to replace the Arena Refrigerant Plant for a cost of $629,986.00-was carried.

(b) Elevator Maintenance Contract

The new elevator in the community centre has been open for public use since May 29th, 2008 after the final inspection. It is required that a certified elevator service provider maintain and service the elevator monthly. Venture Elevator was the contractor hired that supplied and installed the elevator in the community centre. They also service other elevators within the District of Tumbler Ridge and District feels it is more feasible to enter a contract with them rather than retaining the services of another company.

The recommendation:

That Council motion to enter into a maintenance contract for the Community Centre elevator with Venture Elevator for a monthly maintenance cost of $295.00 per month plus GST and to be adjusted on the anniversary date each year to reflect the hourly rate of the company for a period of five years.-carried.
