3. Approval of a Bid from Applied Controls Inc. in the Amount of $79,858.00 for the
North Aurora Police Department HVAC controls
Motion for approval made by Trustee Guethle and seconded by Trustee Lowery. Trustee Curtis questioned the need for this $80,000 item due to the building being just 10 years old. Curtis asked why compatibility was not discussed when the building was originally built. Village Administrator Steve Bosco said that there used to be a universal control 10 years ago that would allow computers to talk to HVACs. It was discovered a couple of years later that there were a lot of issues with the universal control. Now there is something that is 100% compatible. The only way to fix the problem is to remove the entire control system and start from scratch. Trustee Faber asked if there is any recourse. Bosco said that too many years have passed and that the technology was reasonable at the time.
