The Lynnwood City Council established an equipment rental program that included guidelines for replacing vehicles and equipment in the City fleet. Reliable vehicles and equipment in good working order are essential for City employees to perform their jobs effectively and ensure that public services are available to citizens.
This item seeks approval of the 2013 Equipment Rental Replacement Schedule. The replacement schedule includes seven vehicles for the Police Department - four traffic motorcycles, two patrol cars and one crime scene technician SUV. The schedule also includes nine items for Public Works - a 10-12 yard dump truck, a utilities van, two forklifts and five pieces of equipment. The aggregate cost for the 2013 replacement schedule totals $720,600 from Fund 510 - Equipment Rental Reserve.
The adopted 2013/2014 budget includes an appropriation totaling $750,930 in Fund 510 for equipment replacement expenditures in 2013. Therefore, this plan is within current spending limits.
