Wrightstown - supplement

Issue Detail:

To: wrightstownclerk@comcast.net Subject: OPRA Request - clarification Dear Ms. Gorman: I just wanted to write to clarify my November 2, 2011 records request in light of information that you have recently provided. Specifically, you have provided the documents responsive to paragraphs 1 (computer run of Tom\'s Service Center payments) and 5 (audit report) and I have uploaded the fifteen relevant pages as a PDF to [link] Still outstanding are the following paragraphs of my request: 2. All contracts between the Borough and \"Tom\'s Service Center\" or \"M & T, Inc.\" that cover the period from January 1, 2010 through to current date. 3. All resolutions authorizing the purchase of goods and services from \"Tom\'s Service Center\" or \"M & T, Inc.\" from January 1, 2010 through to current date. 4. All solicitations seeking bids or quotes from other vendors of fuel and motor vehicle repair services. I\'ve tallied up the amounts paid to Tom\'s Service Center during 2010. I have determined those amounts to be $7,278.78 for fuel and $4,520.67 for vehicle repairs, maintenance, parts and supplies for a total of $11,799.45. According to page 59 of the audit, the bid threshold for Wrightstown increased from $21,000 to $26,000 effective July 1, 2010. Since the amount spent, in the aggregate, for both fuel and vehicle repairs, etc. exceeded 15% of the bid threshold (15% of the higher figure is $3,900), N.J.S.A. 40A:11-6.1 required the Borough to \"solicit[] at least two competitive quotations, if practicable [and] award [the contract] to a vendor whose response is most advantageous, price and other factors considered.\" The Borough is also required to \"retain the record of the quotation solicitation and shall include a copy of the record with the voucher used to pay the vendor.\" Accordingly, I\'d like to clarify that the records sought under paragraph 4 of my request should include the \"two competitive quotations\" solicited by the Borough for vehicle repair and fuel. Paragraphs 2 and 3, I believe, are not in need of clarification. Thank you. John Paff
