§                     Aviation performed a test installation of new light fixtures at four pole locations and concluded that replacement of the existing light fixtures with the new fixtures will increase illumination on the terminal ramp and reduce lighting glare which affects visibility for pilots. Improvements to the lighting in this area will also benefit employees working in the terminal ramp areas.

§                     G.S. 143-129(e)(3) allows local governments to purchase from formally organized cooperative purchasing contracts.

§                     This contract will provide the pole harness fixture assemblies for the 92 existing light poles that need to be retrofitted. 

§                     Graybar Electric Company Inc. has a contract awarded through US Communities - OMNIA Partners that offers competitively obtained contracts to public agencies nationwide.

§                     The project is anticipated to be complete by the fourth quarter of 2020.

§                     This activity is occurring on Airport property located in Council District 3.
