Title
Resolution to Approve the Purchase of Vehicles from Signature Ford (State of Michigan MiDeal and Macomb County Cooperative Purchasing - $627,019.00)
Memorandum
The attached resolution authorizes the purchase of three 2023 Ford Police Interceptor Utility Hybrid patrol vehicles at $46,171.00 each, two 2023 Ford F-150 Extended Range Lightning SSV all electric pickup trucks at $55,047.00 each, two 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning all electric pickup trucks at $43,511.00 each, one 2023 Ford F-150 Extended Range Lightning all electric pickup truck with tow package at $58,397.00, one 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning all electric pickup truck at $44,726.00, one 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning all electric pickup truck at $43,656.00, one 2023 Ford F-150 4x4 pickup truck at $38,148.00, one 2023 Ford E-Transit 350 all electric cargo van at $56,749.00 and one 2023 Ford Transit 350 15 passenger van at $49,714.00 for a total of $627,019.00 from Signature Ford, Owosso, Michigan. This resolution includes both police vehicles and other City vehicles.

One of these thirteen vehicles has already been ordered at a cost of $38,148.00 because of manufacturer cut-off deadlines. That purchase did not require City Council approval. In adding the twelve extra vehicles to this order, the overall purchase increases above the $75,000.00 threshold for Council consideration.

While electric pickup trucks are now entering the commercial market, their suitability for municipal operations is limited based on the manufacturer's offerings. The only trucks currently being offered are crew cab, short box (5.5' versus the normal 8') configurations and they can't be used for plowing snow. Based on conversations with the major manufacturer's, the City does not expect to see a true "work truck" for several years. Achieving sustainability goals is important but ensuring that staff have the appropriate vehicles to provide services to the public is imperative.
