Background and Discussion:

Fleet Services is requesting a contract to purchase new replacement batteries for County vehicles. Good quality batteries are expensive and having a contract in place will lock in the lowest possible price for us.

 

Expected Impact:

Batteries have a short life when used in severe duty applications, so having replacement batteries readily available is essential to keeping the fleet starting and running when needed.

 

Alternative Options:

There are no other options that I am aware of. Batteries are the key ingredient to having a reliable vehicle and the County fleet can’t be operated without them.

 

Alignment with Goal(s):

_ Justice and Safety

_ Economic Opportunity

_ Housing

_ Public Health

_ Transportation

_ Flooding

_ Environment

_ Governance and Customer Service
