Discussion of License Plate Recognition Contract




Staff will provide information on License Plate Recognition (LPR) Request for Proposal (RFP) completed over the summer.  Staff recommends that the Town Council approve the purchase of LPR equipment at the September 24, 2020 Business meeting.



During FY 21, $350,000 was requested and approved to purchase and install new license plate recognition equipment at the current LPR sites. During the summer, staff issued an RFP that received 11 responses.  Staff requested presentations from two of the respondents, Motorola and PCS Mobile.  After the presentations, the evaluation team expressed that Motorola was best solution for the town based their qualifications and project submission.


After negotiations, Motorola submitted a quote of just under $310,000 to complete the project and support the purchase for five years of service.  The Contract is under legal review and will be ready for the September 24, 2020 Council session.


This presentation will provide the Town Council with the background information needed to decide on signing the contract with Motorola during the September 24, 2020 Business meeting.




During FY 21, $350,000 was budgeted for this Capital Improvement Project.
