Consider/Approve Pre-K Playground/Exercise Equipment Bid


Preliminary Matters:

In addition to advertising, we solicited bids from Kidz Zone Play Systems, Travis School Equipment, BYO Playground, Custom Recreation, and Hammill Recreation for the purchase of Pre-K playground/exercise equipment for Lake Road, Hillcrest, and Ridgemont Elementary Schools’ Pre-K Programs. We received bids from Custom Recreation ($27,988.23) and Kidz Zone Play Systems ($27,278.44) for this purchase. Both bids are in compliance with bid specifications.

The purchase of the Pre-K playground/exercise equipment was specifically requested during the budget planning process for the current fiscal year and Pre-K funds are available in the FY10 budget as approved by the Board.

Staff Recommendation:

I recommend approval of the bid submitted by Kidz Zone Play Systems in the amount of $27,278.44 for the purchase of Pre-K playground/exercise equipment for Lake Road, Hillcrest, and Ridgemont Elementary Schools’ Pre-K Programs.
