Request for Expenditure-  Fire Dept. for Fire Truck

It was moved by Councilwoman Sharp to approve the expenditure request submitted by the Fire Department for a Fire Truck and 7 SCBA air packs, not to exceed $450,000.  Motion was seconded by Councilwoman Estrada.

Discussion:  Councilwoman Guzman asked about the timeline of getting the new firetruck.  Fire Chief Shipman said that we do have a place in line and he thought it would be April-May of 2022 when we would receive the new fire truck.   He also stated that he has had to adjust the cost of the fire trucks and the SCBA’s and the actual cost is $453,195.  He said his request was for not to expend more than $450.000.  He informed Council that the $3,195 difference could come from the Fire Department Reserve fund which has enough to cover this cost.  Mayor suggested instead of coming back that we just amend the motion to the full $453,195.

It was moved by Councilwoman Sharp to amend her motion to approve the expenditure for the Fire Department for the Fire Truck and the 7 SCBA air packs, in the amount of $453,195.

Motion seconded by Councilwoman Estrada was also amended.
