New ambulance chassis for Caliente
Commissioner Adam Katschke reported the City of Caliente is looking into getting a new chassis for one of the ambulances and place the existing box on the chassis. Purchase of a new ambulance would run between $135,000 to $140,000. A used chassis could be found for about $60,000.
District Attorney Daniel Hooge said the City would need to go out for bid on the new box. Commissioner Paul Donohue recommended the City be very specific in how the bid is written so that the bid price remains fixed.
