Staff recommends approval of the purchase of the listed new and replacement vehicles from the Florida Sheriffs Association vehicle contract for $541,115.
The Public Works Department Fleet Division has identified the specific types of vehicles to be purchased for fiscal year 2007. The purchase includes 14 replacement vehicles and 17 new additions to the City’s fleet.
Attached is a listing of each type of vehicle to be purchased. At the end of the listing is a summary detailing the numbers and dollar amounts for each type of purchase.
The vendors to be used for the purchases are Garber Chevrolet of Green Cove Springs, FL; Tropical Ford of Orlando, FL; and Duval Ford of Jacksonville, FL.
The City will make these purchases using the Florida Sheriffs Association Bid No. 06-14-0821. Each year the Florida Sheriffs Association prepares specifications for a multitude of vehicles and equipment. The specifications are issued in an invitation to bid. The association then awards contracts to various vendors throughout the State of Florida. The process is an open and competitive process. The Sheriffs contract is available for use by municipalities and saves our City and other agencies considerable time.

2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The funds for the vehicle purchases were budgeted and are available in the Equipment Purchase – New and Equipment Purchase – Replacement accounts as indicated.
