The Fleet Management Division will purchase and place into service ninety-one (91) Battery Electric (BEV) vehicles and Partial Hybrid Electric (PHEV) vehicles.  The purchase and use of these units will reduce harmful carbon emissions and Green House Gases in Central Ohio and is in accordance with the commitments to the Smart City Program. Of the vehicles to be purchased, the Division of Police will receive ten (10), Code Enforcement will receive fifty (50), the Division of Fire fifteen (15), and Facilities Management will receive sixteen (16).

 

The total cost of the vehicles is $2,005,955.76 of which $273,000.00 will be provided by the Department of Public Service through a onetime grant award from Vulcan, Inc. in the amount of $3,000.00 per vehicle. The remaining $1,732,955.76 will be provided by the Special Income Tax Fund pursuant to the City's 2017 vehicle acquisition plan.
