Police Chief recommends council approve one time money designated for the replacement of the Coalinga Police Department's Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) system as prioritized with Measure J revenue for the current fiscal year.
In 2018, the City Council prioritized, with the passing of Measure J, the one time money to replace the department's building wide UPS system that was damaged due to a fire approximately 15 years ago.
With the Council's priority in 2018 of the spending of one time money for the replacement and purchase of a UPS system, the department has reached out to Gruber Power Service to replace the UPS system. Gruber has provide a quote in the amount of $25,518.00 for the equipment, instillation and 1 year warranty on the battery and equipment.
This equipment is essential to the police department for continuous power to the building during a power failure or an event which may interrupt power to the police department which would have an effect on the department's computers and the ability to remain functional. The UPS system is designed to maintain power to the building until the back up generator kicks in.
The council may deny this quote and request the police department reach out for additional bids.
V. FISCAL IMPACT:
The fiscal impact to the general fund using Measure J money is $25, 518.00 and would be taken from account 101-413-9805.
