Assistant Chief Jeff LeDuc had made a recommendation to the Board of Selectmen regarding the bids, the

bid was for $225,211.00 with a $10,000.00 trade in (but was originally quoted
$15,000.00 for the trade in.) The Board of Selectmen recommended that we get
the original quoted amount of $15,000.00, The Town Administrator will contact
Pete Stuart at Sugarloaf to request that we receive the $15,000.00 trade in
with no other changes to the bid. With
the trade in at $15,000.00 the total bid of the new Rescue Ambulance would be
for $210,112.00. William J. Mageary had
asked if Sugarloaf's bid was with heavy duty suspension coils or if it was air
springs, Assistant Chief Lebuc stated that it was liquid springs. William J. Mageary asked what was available
for funds, as of 12/09/2020 there was $206,796.00; the Town Administrator will
follow-up with the Town Treasurer to obtain the current amount available. Scott E. Cudworth asked if this bid included
a new Stryker (Stretcher)? Assistant

now is interchangeable and would be moved over to the new ambulance. Will discuss further at the next meeting.
