<br />sweepers had not been,too thoroughly considered because he and the Public Works
<br />Supt, had become convinced, after watching the Tennant last year, that the
<br />vacuumized sweeper is not what the Village needs for heavy street work; that the
<br />other four models had been considered; that the Mobil is a truck-mounted sweeper
<br />and has not proved to be satisfactory in gett+g around low radius corners; that
<br />the Village has had an Elgin for 4% years and has had trouble getting parts because
<br />the local distributor does not carry a complete line of parts and they must be
<br />shipped from Cleveland, thus causing delay in the repair. He stated that Phillippi
<br />Equipment, bidding on Wayne Models, does carry a complete parts stock, and recommended
<br />that bid be awarded to Phillippi at $10,180.00 for the Model 1-550 (4-Yd), stating
<br />that this bid is higher than that for the Elgin by about $285 but that with the
<br />Wayne a steel broom will be furnished, which will lessen the difference by about
<br />$150; that he believes the availability of parts and service to be a big advantage,
<br />and that this make has been satisfactory to both City of Minneapolis and Minnesota
<br />Highway Department.
<br />answered to the effect that this model is just not heavy enough for the type of
<br />work which must be done here.
<br />that the bid of Phillippi Equipment Go., for a Wayne Model No. 1-550, amount
<br />$10,180 .OO be accepted in viey of the Manager ' s recommendations iherefor .

<br />that of Handling Equipment Co., for a #850 GT Grapple Tilt nodal, at $3,090.00.
<br />Manager recommended acceptance of the truck bid of International Harvester Go.,
<br />stating that this will standardize our requipment, and that the bid of GMN Pioneer
<br />.mst be .increased by $150 because this truck's fenders are too wide for the mounting
<br />of the loader without additional work.for adaptation, Tupa's motion, that
<br />contract for truck be awarded to International Harvester Co., and that bid for
<br />Loader be awarded to Handling Equipment Go., was seconded by Dickson and carried.
