REQUEST THAT THE CITY COUNCIL AUTHORIZE AN EMERGENCY PROCUREMENT AND THAT THE CITY MANAGER BE AUTHORIZED TO SIGN A CONTRACT WITH ALPHA SOUTHWEST, INC. IN THE AMOUNT OF $186,911.00 FOR THE REHABILITATION OF THE OLD WATER WELL, WHICH IS USED FOR IRRIGATION PURPOSES, AT THE EL PASO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT LONE STAR GOLF COURSE (CONTRACT NO. 2005-196).

THEREFORE, THERE IS A NEED TO REHABILITATE THE OLD WELL. IN THE INTERIM, THE GOLF COURSE CONTINUES TO UTILIZE A FIRE HYDRANT FOR WATERING PURPOSES.
