NEW BUSINESS

 

6.1       DPW Truck Purchase

H. Dickerson explained the situation with the white DPW truck and the need to replace it. The subject was brought up some time ago but no action was taken. Signature Ford will honor the bid from last January if the Village acts promptly. Soon they will be going to 2015 models and prices. The Board discussed the purchase of a new truck vs. the purchase of a used truck, where the funds will come from, and financing options. The price of the dump box and snow plow was discussed. Gormley mentioned that with municipal financing a Resolution will be needed.

 

MOTION by Cameron, seconded by Mulholland to proceed with this quote to purchase a 2014 Ford

F-350 truck and equipment from Signature Ford at a cost of $38,935 with a $20,000.00 down payment and to have Gormley draw up the necessary paperwork for the next meeting.
