RM Approves Contracts For Body Cameras, Tasers, Salt Dome Repairs, More

The Rolling Meadows City Council awarded four contracts for equipment and projects at the meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Aldermen agreed to a 10-year contract with Axon Enterprises, Inc., of Scottsdale, AZ, for police-related equipment. Axon will supply the city with body cameras along with cloud services to store the video data. The company will also supply Tasers along with maintenance and supplies for those devices. The contract will run from December 2023 until December 2033 at a price of $1,843,708.39. That amount reflects a savings of $585,972.63 off the list prices.

They also awarded a contract for salt dome roof repairs to Bulk Storage Inc. of Beecher. Bulk Storage, the original builder of the salt dome at 3900 Berdnick Dr., will repair 18 sections of shingles on the roof and the wood paneling at the entrance. The city had set aside $200,000 to replace the dome, but an inspection showed the building to be structurally sound, so the repairs were agreed upon for $30,625.

Another contract was given to Christopher B. Burke Engineering of Rosemont for professional design engineering services for the 2024 road reconstruction project. The company will perform those services for a price of $64,946. The projects planned in 2024 include street improvements to Silent Brook Lane from Quentin Road to Mill Creek Lane, Mill Creek Lane from Silent Brook Lane to Groveside Lane, and Groveside Lane from Fox Lane to Mill Creek Lane.

A contract for pipe lining of sanitary and storm sewers was given to Hoerr Construction of Goodfield, IL. The work, with a price of $146,647, includes more than 2,000 feet of 8-inch sanitary sewer, nearly 600 feet of 12-inch sanitary sewer, 53 lateral service reinstatements, and several other improvements.

Finally, the council awarded a contract for sanitary sewer manhole lining and rehabilitation to National Power Rodding of Chicago. The $94,235 contract provides for the company to rehabilitate 52 manholes, 17 manhole benches, and grouting repairs.
