Agenda Item Brief:

Equipment Services is requesting authorization to spend $92,754.75 to replace three vehicles for the Police Department.


This request is for the replacement of three vehicles. Depending on their condition, units 2200, 2111, 276A will likely be replaced by #2210 Chevy Tahoe patrol, 2138 Chevy Silverado, 2139 Chevy Impala detective vehicles. 2111 & 2200 have exceeded their scheduled life cycles. These units will be re-evaluated prior to replacement and may be substituted for vehicles with major failures. Due to fund restrictions, purchasing two detective vehicles is slight departure from our original plan to replace two patrol vehicles and one detective.


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 and provide direction to the City Manager.

Recommended Motion:

I move to approve the purchase of three vehicles from Champion Chevrolet in the amount of $92,754.75.
