The East Wenatchee, Wash. City Council recently voted unanimously in favor of two separate resolutions concerning the procurement of police vehicles and the management of its fleet, according to Newsradio 560KPQ.
The first resolution reauthorizes the city to purchase and install all of its police vehicle equipment through Systems for Public Safety (SPS). SPS is the only company in the area that orders, installs, and certifies all the equipment needs the city has. The city’s fleet management has been transitioning out of its public works department.
The second resolution authorized the city to use a nationwide purchasing cooperative to buy police vehicles at a cheaper price.
The full proposal can be found on page 40 of the city council agenda bill here.
