Resolution of the City of Brookings to Enter into
a Purchase Agreement for a Fire Engine
Whereas, the City of Brookings is in need of a Fire Engine to replace Engine No. 2 of the Brookings Fire Department, and has determined through a thorough review of the submitted specifications, that the purchase of a Fire Engine from a contract with the manufacturer, Toyne Inc., that was competitively solicited and awarded within the previous twelve months is in the best interests of the City of Brookings; and
Whereas, the new fire engine will replace a 2006 Crimson Top Mount Fire Engine (“Engine No. 2”) that has exceeded its useful life and is experiencing increasingly costly repairs; and
Whereas, the cost to purchase the fire engine apparatus from Toyne Inc. is $601,154.56, with the purchase price reflecting a trade in value of $90,000 for the 2006 Crimson Top Mount Engine; and
Whereas, pursuant to SDCL 5-18A-22, the City is authorized to purchase from a contract with Toyne Inc. which was competitively solicited by the Houston-Galveston Area Council and Toyne Inc. within the past twelve (12) months; and
Whereas, because of lengthy manufacturing lead times, the purchase of the fire engine at this time will result in a budgeted expenditure in 2023 when the apparatus is delivered to the City of Brookings,
Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved by the City Council of the City of Brookings, that the City enter into an Apparatus Purchase Agreement with Toyne Inc. for the purchase of a Fire Engine, and that the City Manager, Fire Chief and Clerk are authorized to execute the documents necessary to complete the purchase of the above-described Fire Engine from Toyne Inc.
Passed and approved this 24th day of May, 2022.
