BACKGROUND:
Approved in the 2019 Capital Budget is $125,000.00 for the purchase of a heavy-duty fleet maintenance vehicle.  The vehicle will be used by the fire department’s fleet service personnel to address mechanical problems and to assist with performing preventive maintenance on the fire department’s fleet.
 
Fleet service personnel need a service truck with specialized equipment to service the fire department fleet.  Mobile service for the fire department fleet is often required.  The properly outfitted vehicle will help reduce out of service times associated with maintenance issues.  It will also provide a means for personnel to deal with mechanical break downs in the field.  The specialized equipment includes storage for parts and a variety tools needed to service the fleet.  The vehicle will also feature a PTO air compressor, 4000-pound heavy-duty crane, six-inch mechanics vice, and hose reels. See Attachment C.

The proposal was obtained from Chastang Ford and will be purchased through the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) government cooperative purchasing program.  HGAC’s purchasing program ensures that the costs for products have been bid properly, assisting local governments with product procurement.
