Purchasing

Purchasing is responsible for the centralized purchasing and warehousing functions for all City operations and to distribute materials on a daily basis for all City Department/Divisions. The warehouse personnel receive in inventory and non-inventory items. The Purchasing Warehouse stocks and issues items to all City departments/ divisions. Non-inventory items are delivered or picked up by the individual departments/divisions. Special project materials are also stocked. Inventory items include electrical, gas, water, office supplies, tools, sewer supplies, etc. The warehouse also issues City uniforms to employees (except police and fire departments). Certain items are delivered to individual departments/divisions. The warehouse operates on the AS400 computer system which simplifies the inventory process and daily operations. The AS400 assists the Purchasing Technician in ordering items on a daily basis. This is accomplished by daily input of issue and return tickets.
