Dog and Pest Control Contracts (Agenda item 17)

Report of the Executive Member for the Planning, Health & Housing Portfolio (Paul Claussen).

Additional documents:

  • Restricted enclosure 2

Minutes:

The Principal Environmental Health Officer provided Members with details of the outcome of the European Tender process for the provision of the Pest and Dog Control Services by private contractor.  The companies chosen would provide good services within the budget provision.

 

Options

 

1)           Not extend the existing pest and dog control contracts and run the risk of non-provision after April 2011.

 

2)           Accept the recommended contractors to provide the pest and dog control services to the Council for the next three years with an option to extend the contracts for one year.

 

Reasons

 

The contract specifications and tender submission by the recommended contractors would ensure enhanced services to the Council and Breckland residents and represented best value, with a financial saving for the dog warden service of just under £30,000.

 

RESOLVED that the pest control contract be awarded to Pest Express Ltd and the dog warden service contract be awarded to Animal Warden Services as detailed in paragraph 3.2 of the report.
