Coweta purchases new ambulance

Coweta County commissioners May 18 added to the county’s ambulance fleet with the approval of an $89,996 low bid by Peach State Ambulance. All bids included the trade of an older ambulance.

County Administrative and Operations Director Tom Corker in a May 5 letter informed commissioners that the low bid came from Peach State Ambulance, Inc. The $89,996 bid for a 2010 Chevrolet G4500 Type III ambulance with a retail of $109,996 came with a trade-in allowance of $20,000 for the county’s 2005 type III ambulance. The bid came with a 30-60 day delivery date.

Corker said the Request for Proposal generated two additional bids. Those came from Affordable Ambulance, LLC and Custom Works.

The bid by Affordable, including the trade-in, totaled $111,950 for a 2011 Chevrolet G4500 and came with a 120-180 day delivery date.

The Custom Works bid of $92,418 was for a 2010 Chevrolet G4500 that included a $7,500 trade-in allowance. The delivery date was 120-180 days.

The vote by commissioners was unanimous.
