Five of Brentwood’s current vehicles were scheduled for replacement in 2013/2014. These vehicles were inspected and evaluated by Police and Fleet/Facilities Division staff; and after careful review of their maintenance records and condition, staff recommends replacing all five vehicles.
The City Council will vote tonight to approve the staff recommendation which will allow the City Manager to execute a purchase order and necessary documents in the amount not to exceed $166,465.
