Title
Resolution to Approve the Purchase of Three Police Patrol Vehicles from Signature Ford (Macomb County Bid - $80,124.00)
Memorandum
The attached resolution authorizes the purchase of three 2016 Ford Police Interceptor - Utility vehicles at $26,708.00 each for a total of $80,124.00 from Signature Ford, Owosso, Michigan.

The police patrol vehicles listed on this resolution will replace vehicles that have reached the 80,000 miles or the 6 years in service limit in the next year. The City's labor contracts with the Ann Arbor Police Officers Association and the Ann Arbor Police Supervisors require that vehicles used by their members will not be driven more than 80,000 miles or 6 years, whichever comes first.

The Ford Police Interceptor - Utility vehicle is built specifically for sale to law enforcement agencies and is not available to the public. After evaluating a number of different patrol vehicles over the last few years, this is the vehicle that the Police Unit of the Safety Services Area has requested to become our standard patrol vehicle. The Utility style, similar to a Ford Explorer, has become necessary to accommodate the large amounts of equipment installed in a standard patrol vehicle.

This purchase follows the guidelines of the City's Green Fleet Policy to reduce the amount of fuel used and to pay a premium for "greener" vehicles if necessary.

The Fleet and Facilities Unit reviewed the bids of the Cooperative Purchasing Programs of the State of Michigan, Oakland County, and Macomb County. Signature Ford was the lowest responsive bidder to the Macomb County bid.

Adequate funds for these purchases have been budgeted in the Fleet Services budget for fiscal year 2016

Signature Ford complies with the requirements of the City's non-discrimination ordinances.
