McHenry County Buying Squad Cars from Decatur

Squad totaled on Greenwood Road this summer.

The State of Illinois allows local governments to purchase things state government buys at the same price the state pays.

So, local governments, in many instances, can find a cheaper price using the bulk buying power of Illinois largest employer than they can by themselves.

That is what is scheduled to be authorized on Tuesday at the Finance Committee meeting.

A resolution being considered will authorize county purchasing officials β€œto negotiate into a contract for sixteen (16) new police pursuit vehicles with Miles Chevrolet of Decatur.”

In this case, the State is piggy backing on a Cook County contract. The Sheriff and the Director of Purchasing is making the recommendation.

Presumably, the car above is one scheduled for replacement.
