The Fire Chief recommends using some of the money received from the sale of the surplus ambulances to replace old furniture at the fire station.
At the April 16, 2020 Council Meeting, the Council declared four ambulances as surplus, and authorized them to be sold via online auction. After the online auction completed, the proceeds are as follows:
7200 2009 Chevrolet 3500 Ambulance - $3,937.00
7201 2009 Chevrolet 3500 Ambulance - $4,600.00
7203 2002 Ford E450 Ambulance - $4,300.00
7260 2007 International 4300 Ambulance - $4,750.00
For a total of $17,587.00
The fire chief and firefighter’s association would like to use some of the money to replace old and broken furniture in the station. The recliners in the day room are over eight years old. While still usable, they are covered with fabric which makes them hard to clean and sanitize.They have broken components with rips and tears in the fabric. These would be replaced with a more durable synthetic leather.
The dining room furniture needs replacement. The chairs have become worn and pieces have been glued back together multiple times. The department is wishing to replace the table and chairs with something more durable and industrial for fire station living. We would also like to replace the training room/EOC chairs.
1. Use the proceeds for other purposes.
V. FISCAL IMPACT:
The cost associated with the purchase of new furniture would be $4,543.00 for (7) industrial strength recliners at $649.00 each. $650.00 for a new, locally made, custom table that seats 8. $854.28 for (8) kitchen chairs. $4,511.37 for (18) office chairs for the training room/EOC. The total cost for all furniture would be $10,558.65.
