Nearly-completed corporate yard in need of furnishing equipment
Fleet Maintenance Facility
The Fleet Maintenance Facility otherwise known as the new corporate yard for the City of Ripon will look to add a mobile vehicle column lifts and support stands.

 The Fleet Maintenance Facility on Doak Boulevard is nearing completion.

What’s still needed is furnishing equipment for the new corporate yard, including that of a mobile vehicle column lifts and support stands.

“These lifts and stands will be used for the larger vehicles and equipment within the fleet including garbage trucks, buss, roll-off trucks, backhoes, dump trucks, etc.,” said Public Works Director James Pease in his report for tonight’s Ripon City Council meeting.

The monthly session will begin at 6 o’clock in the Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave.

As part of the Fleet Maintenance Facility Project, elected leaders approved at their Dec. 13 meeting $500,000 to be allocated for City furnished items.

Of that, $41,443 were approved at last month’s meeting for office and conference room furniture.

Other items on the list are computers/network/printer/phones/monitors along with miscellaneous shop storage/shelving.

Cost for the mobile vehicle column lifts and support stands, as quoted from Stertil-Koni – the market leader in safe and dependable heavy duty vehicle lifts – is $171,182.

Payment, once approved, would come from AB1600 Fund, Enterprise Capital Fund, and General Capital Fund.

Staff is recommending approval from the City Council on this purchase.

In other agenda items:

  • A change order is requested on the Fleet Maintenance Facility Project for additional electrical circuit, vinyl window tint, and gas piping, in the amount not to exceed $28,917.

  • A proclamation from the City will recognize Ripon Christian High athletes for their recent outstanding accomplishments.

  • A resolution to adopt the City of Ripon Fiscal Year 2024-2025 budget.
