BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The New Braunfels Park and Recreation and the Landa Park Golf Course are replacing an aging fleet of equipment that is well past its useful life.

 

The Parks and Recreation general operations has five (5) pieces of equipment to be replaced with an average age of 16 years.  These units are used daily for the mowing and maintenance of parks and other City properties.

 

The Landa Park Golf Course is replacing maintenance equipment that were purchased in 2014. All of these units are used on a regular basis for greens mowing, fairway mowing, chemical applications and general maintenance work throughout the Golf Course. These units are identified for replacement on the enterprise equipment replacement scheduled. The current units are all at the end of their life span and repairing them long term would not be financially feasible. 

 

The City will be utilizing BuyBoard Cooperative contracts with Deere & Company and Professional Turf Products for the requested equipment. The cooperative contracts have been vetted thereby supporting the City’s competitive bidding requirements.

The total cost for the following recommended equipment is $466,181.
