SUBMITTED BY: Richard Dublinski, Director

BACKGROUND:
Units 326, 381, and 356 were reviewed and approved by the Fleet Economic Committee and Fleet Services Manager for replacement in the 2022 budget. Equipment is scored for replacement based on four criteria: age, usage, condition and repair costs. Recommending a vehicle for replacement requires a score of 28.0 or greater.
