Fiscal Note
Metro Transit is in the process of transitioning vendors for its tire lease program. Leg File 59148 (adopted by the Council on February 25, 2020) authorized a competitively bid agreement with Goodyear to begin providing tires on July 1, 2020. As part of the transition, Metro has the option to purchase all tires provided under the current contract, estimated to cost $360,000. The proposed resolution authorizes this purchase and amends the budget to appropriate funding from Metro’s fund balance for the purchase.

Metro’s 2020 Adopted Budget includes $264,000 for the tire lease contract. If this resolution is approved, it is estimated total tire expenditures in 2020 will be $530,000. Following this transition year, Metro projects tire spending will return to budgeted levels.
