At Tuesday's County Commission meeting, Commissioners heard a request from the Planning & Zoning Department regarding the purchase of vehicles for Environmental Health. The department employs two environmental health sanitarians that provide services for a total of four counties. The purchase of two vehicles was pre-approved in the 2023 County Equipment Improvement Plan.

Bids were opened on April 17th and one bid was received:

Long McArthur Ford - $39,938.69 per vehicle for a 2023 AWD Ford Explorer for a total cost of $79,877.38.

Budget Impact
$70,000 was pre-approved in the County EIP for the two vehicles. The remaining $9,877.38 would still come from County EIP but from equipment purchases that have come in under budget and purchases that are no longer planned.

$13,600 was approved for various lab equipment for the Planning & Zoning department which has been purchased leaving $1,082.26 available. The Sheriff’s Office had intended to purchase 6 vehicles in 2023 and staff has advised they will not be purchasing a 6th vehicle which leaves $49,965 available.

The motion was approved 5-0.
