Title
Resolution to Authorize the Purchase of a 2022 Pierce Custom Enforcer Class A Pumper Fire Apparatus from Halt Fire Inc. (Sourcewell - $662,453.00)
Memorandum
The attached resolution authorizes the purchase of one 2022 Pierce Custom Enforcer Class A Pumper at a cost of $662,453.00 through the Sourcewell cooperative purchasing program (contract #113021) for use by the Safety Services Area, Fire Department.

Halt Fire Inc., Wixom, Michigan, is the approved local vendor for Pierce fire apparatus.

The Office of Sustainability and Innovation has agreed to fund the upgrade for the idle reduction technology in the amount of $27,743.00.
