both City ambulance units currently out of service (motor and transmission
problems) the city commissioners authorized the city manager to either purchase
(or lease) a new ambulance as soon as possible. In the meantime the city is
using an ambulance on loan from Claremore and mutual aid from neighboring
communities. Continued repairs on the existing 1996 and 1998 units (both with
at least 150,000 miles) was deemed not a good investment nor a reliable option.
Approximately $20,000 was spent in the past year keeping the two units rolling.
One estimate for a new ambulance given the commissioners was approximately
$82,000. An estimate to remount one of the existing ambulance "boxes"
on a new vehicle was about $60,000 but the box would need to be brought up
to current regulations. -- Ted
