 MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE
MAYOR AND THE COMMITTEE-OF-THE-WHOLE
OF THE CITY OF EAST MOLINE, ILLINOIS

ON 03/06/2000

ROLL CALL
Mayor Ward called the meeting to order and directed the City Clerk Bobbi-Sue Huntoon to call the roll. The following Alder People were present: Gary Kelley, Crotis Teague, Helen Heiland, John Thodos, Joe Moreno, Carol Doose and David Kelley. There were no Alder People absent.

GUTHRIE PARKING LOT (STEVE VERDICK/JOSEPH DUFFY)
The demand for downtown on-street public parking has exceeded the number of parking spaces available. In an attempt to address public parking demands in this vicinity, strong consideration should be given to purchase two lots west of the old Eagle's Realty Building (Lots 3 and 4, Block 158, Town of East Moline). The number of additional public parking spaces provided by this site would total 26. A recent appraisal (dated May 20, 1999) has been completed. The site's market value has been determined to be a total of $19,700 for both lots. The recommendation is to purchase lots 3 and 4, Block 158, Town of East Moline for public parking from REDEEM. Since the site is in a TIF District, the money could be borrowed from the General Fund and paid back from the TIF increment.
A motion was made by Moreno, seconded by Teague for the preparation of a resolution authorizing the preparation and execution of an offer to purchase lots 3 and 4, Block 158, Town of East Moline for public parking from REDEEM. Since the site is in a TIF District, the money could be borrowed from the General Fund and paid back from the TIF increment, pass on to the full council for consideration. Upon roll call the following Alder People voted in favor: G. Kelley, Teague, Heiland, Thodos, Moreno, Doose and D. Kelley. Motion carried.

UNIFORM BIDS (STEVE VERDICK)
The City of East Moline provides work uniforms for most of the AFSCME employees. Currently the uniform service is provided by Aramark, however, the 3 year contract expires on April 30, 2000. Bids for a new 3 year agreement were received from 4 vendors in February. Although G & K prices are slightly lower than Aramark, it seems that it is in the best interest of the City to accept the Aramark bid based upon their location in East Moline and the revenues they contribute to the City. The Aramark bid for 2000 is the same price as 1999. The second and third years are limited to a 3% increase each year
A motion was made by Thodos, seconded by Teague to concur with the staff recommendation and accept The Aramark bid for 2000 for the same price as 1999.
