Within the Capital Investment Plan (CIP), the <br /> current compactor is due to be replaced in FY 2022-23. However, it has become necessary to <br /> move the purchase forward because of the cost to repair. The contractor is inoperable and the <br /> estimated cost to repair is $42,000 with no assurance that the repair will last because of the age <br /> of the machine. The compactor is used to reduce the volume of material being disposed at the <br /> C&D landfill, thereby helping to maintain the permitted airspace over a longer period of time. <br /> FINANCIAL IMPACT: The financial impact will include the purchase of a LC90 Wagner <br /> compactor for $648,250. This price includes a $50,000 trade allowance for the current compactor <br /> that is onsite. This Budget Amendment #14-A provides for the purchase of this compactor in FY <br /> 2020-21 with available Solid Waste Enterprise Fund reserves and then the Fund will reimburse <br /> itself from financing proceeds scheduled in FY 2021-22. <br /> SOCIAL JUSTICE IMPACT: There is no Orange County Social Justice Goal impact associated <br /> with this item. <br /> ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT: The following Orange County Environmental Responsibility Goal <br /> impact is applicable to this item: <br /> • ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND WASTE REDUCTION <br />
