To much money for something that is to be used for less than 10 days a year as explained in public several times. For example July 4th, Labor day and some real hot weekends when the beach is mobbed. A used or second hand one was not pursued ( at least not mentioned) and no creative thinking was used on this need, just buy a new one! It's essentially going to be a temporary storage container ( a big one at that ) while the existing containers are in transit to and from their respective disposal sites. Let them get creative and think on this. Vote no on this request.
