Excerpts from

Tinley Park board members voted to chip in 80 percent of the cost for a new fire engine for Tinley Park Fire Department at last week’s village board meeting.

The new engine costs $830,000 total of which the village will pay $637,989 and $159,497 will be paid for by the Tinley Park Fire Department Association. Officials did not immediately respond to questions on who will pay the remaining $32,514.

According to trustees, the engine runs a high price due to the newness of the machine and the special design. The fire association formed a committee of firefighters to determine which features they would need most on a new engine before purchasing.

The average cost of a new fire engine ranges from $600,000 to $1 million, officials said.

The engine is being bought through the Houston Galveston Area Council Purchasing Cooperation, an inter-governmental sales program. The resolution approving the purchase noted the purchasing cooperation’s prices were subject to a competitive bidding process.
