The Board of Supervisors discussed the approval of the SERVICE AGREEMENT between Black Hawk County and Rapiscan Systems, Torrance, CA in the amount of $4,620.00 for the Courthouse x-ray machine effective December 1, 2018 through November 30, 2019. Little said that the cost of the agreement over the period the county owned the current machine would pay for a new machine (over $30,000). Superintendent of Maintenance Rory Geving said that’s why he had the item on the agenda for discussion. He said that he checked to see how quickly a different machine would arrive on site if the current one failed, and it would be two to three weeks if in stock, and ten plus weeks if not. Without an x-ray machine, security guards would need to search bags and packages with metal-detecting wands. Little asked how many service calls have been required for the current machine. Geving said that in 2018 there were three calls, including the annual preventive maintenance service call. Little asked how long the company took to respond to a call. Geving said within a week. Little said he feels the cost is ridiculous, but he sees no alternative. Geving agreed. Little asked how much a call would cost without the service agreement. Geving said about $6,000.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Little to approve the SERVICE AGREEMENT between Black Hawk County and Rapiscan Systems, Torrance, CA in the amount of $4,620.00 for the Courthouse x-ray machine effective December 1, 2018 through November 30, 2019. Motion carried.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
