Dundee accepts ambulance vehicle bid

DUNDEE--The village of Dundee voted to accept a bid on an ambulance during their meeting Tuesday, July 28 at the village hall. The board accepted a bid worth $140,750 from Gorman Enterprises out of seven submitted bids.
Dundee Fire Chief Steve Warriner said the department recommended accepting this bid, which was the second lowest one offered. He said it was the best value bid, as the lowest bid offered an ambulance that was just a few years younger than the one they are looking to replace. The vehicle included in the accepted bid is a Life Line ambulance, which Ray Miller added is the same type as the aging vehicle Dundee is looking to replace.
"The quality was evident just as soon as we saw the Life Line," Warriner said. "It was a huge difference, especially in the warranty."
Warriner said the old ambulance is more than 14 years old, adding the vehicle they wish to purchase should last much longer than the one that was included with the lowest bid. Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. agreed, saying there is no sense in buying an ambulance from 2005 when the one they want to replace is from 2001.
Miller also mentioned with the ongoing issues with the department's newest pumper truck they may be considering legal action against the company that built it. He said the builders were told to find a solution within a month or the department will have to seek legal action. The truck has had ongoing issues since it arrived at Dundee, including lurching forward whenever it accelerates. Cratsley said they spent $550,000 on the truck, adding "it still ain't right."
