- Be asked to approve the sale or scrapping of a 1992 Gillig Phantom bus for $2,000. Due to the age and condition of the vehicle, the bus is not marketable for its intended use. The bus will not be advertised and there will be no bidding. The city will not accept less than $2,000 for the bus, which is its scrap value.
The city also has several spare parts for the bus. Those will be offered to be sold with the bus or to other Illinois transit providers.
- Be asked to approve a resolution to allow the city to advertise certain vehicles and equipment for sale through eBay or trade equipment magazines. The equipment includes a 1998 International Harvester Vactor truck, 1992 Lee G440 Grader, 1981 John Deere end loader, 2005 Bacchus Model 14.28 windrow turner and a 2003 CUES transporter/winch sewer televising equipment.
- Be asked to approve the purchase of an emergency diesel generator for the public works facility on Voorhees Street. The sole bid was submitted by Cummins Crosspoint LLC of Normal for $79,180. The city feels the public works facility needs a back-up power source because it is deemed a critical facility for incident command center operations and as an emergency response center.
- Asked to consider a two-year agreement with Ameren Energy Marketing to provide electricity for city use at a cost of 4.395 cents per kilowatt hour.
- Be asked to approve a resolution to enter into a five-year agreement with Comcast to provide telephone and Internet services for the city. The cost to the city is $4,558 per month. The city currently uses AT&T for its telephone and internet service.
- Approve the acceptance of donated office furniture from Central Illinois Bank. The office furniture had been sitting in a warehouse and not being used. Downtown services superintendent Shelly Larson made an inquiry on the behalf of the city and Central Illinois Bank agreed to the donation. The equipment is in good shape and can be used in many city departments.
