City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 10/01/2019  
Subject:    Consider Purchase of Fire Rescue Truck
From: Joan Lenzmeier, City Clerk

INTRODUCTION
Staff is recommending purchase of one fire engine through a contract for cooperative purchasing.
DISCUSSION
Staff is recommending the purchase of one (1) 2020 Rosenbauer fire engine utilizing a cooperative purchasing contract with the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) at a base cost of $675,379.  This will replace a 2009 Pierce fire engine.  Staff anticipates the existing truck will be kept as a reserve engine.  The 2009 Rosenbauer rescue truck will then be sold for approximately $50,000.

Staff is requesting that the order be placed on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 with anticipated delivery in October of 2020.

Funding for the replacement fire engine has been included in the proposed 2020 City budget. While the budget will not be approved until December, the City can realize a more timely delivery of the new fire engine by ordering now.
RECOMMENDATION
Authorize the purchase of one replacement fire engine.
