New engine for Lake Zurich

From Lake Zurich meeting minutes:

  1. Authorization to Purchase a 2019 Pierce Saber Fire Engine from Global Emergency Products in the Amount Not-to-Exceed $539,214 (Trustee Shaw)

    Summary: The 2019 budget includes $572,000 to replace a 22-year old fire engine from 1997 with 135,000 miles on it. Currently, the Fire Rescue Department operates five engines from four stations serving approximately 37,000 residents over a 25-square mile geographic area. The replacement engine is proposed to be purchased from Global Emergency Products using the Houston-Galveston Area Council Purchasing Cooperative, a national joint- purchasing cooperative. The Fire District will contribute its share of the engine purchase, roughly $269,000, relieving some burden on Village finances.

    Recommended Action: A motion to authorize the purchase of one 2019 Pierce Saber fire engine from Global Emergency Products in the Amount Not-to- Exceed $539,214.
