Agenda Item Brief:

Equipment Services is requesting authorization to spend $139,940.25 to replace four vehicles for the Fire Department and one for TMWRF.


This request is for the replacement of four Fire Department vehicles #304D, #310C, #317A, #316A and one TMWRF vehicle #24A. These vehicles have reached the end of their life cycle. These five vehicles will be reevaluated and may be reused as a replacement for other older vehicles in the fleet or will be sold at auction.


In sourcing these vehicles, if approved, the City would be using the joinder provision allowed under NRS 332.195, and purchasing these vehicles utilizing the State of Nevada vehicle bid. Utilizing existing bids have historically been the most competitive. Utilizing the “joinder” provision allows the City to precisely define the vehicles needed while foregoing the need to formally bid the item.

  1. Council could approve this purchase as outlined by staff.
  2. Council could deny this purchase.
  3. Council could direct staff to provide alternatives to this purchase.

Recommended Motion:

I move to approve the purchase of five vehicles from Champion Chevrolet in the amount of $139,940.25.
