Background Information:

The City of San Marcos is authorized by the Local Government Code, Chapter 271, to participate in cooperative purchasing programs. The Sourcewell Cooperative has awarded contract #032119-KOM for Heavy Construction Equipment and Related Accessories, Attachments and Supplies to Waukesha-Pearce Industries, Inc a distributor of Komatsu America located in San Antonio, Texas.

 

Through this Sourcewell contract, we are purchasing a new Komatsu front end wheel loader with a 2.5 yard bucket with coupler forks which will be used by the Drainage Division to haul dirt and debris from drainage channels or detention ponds in the City. It will also be used for loading street sweeping spoils into dump trucks which will then be hauled to Texas Disposal Service.
