g. Disposal of Newbern Fire Truck - Permission to dispose of the 1965 fire truck, with the proceeds to be retained by the Newbern Fire Department, is requested. The Newbern Fire Chief, Miller Farris, is trying to dispose of a 1965 International Truck from that department. After trying several sales in order to obtain the best price, he has received an offer of $5,000 from an individual who wants to buy it for its antique status. Since these trucks are specialized, Mr. Doug Mayberry, Director of Fleet Maintenance, does not think auction or any other type of sale will result in more money. The department wants to sell the vehicle and use the funds internally. • Continued
Since, the volunteers bought this piece of equipment and just titled it through the County for insurance and maintenance purposes, disposal by the department and internal use of proceeds is recommended for approval by the Board. A truck in the Dublin Fire Department built the same year experienced a complete brake failure in the past two weeks. Mr. Mayberry recommends removal of the vehicle from County use, if at all possible, due to the lack of redundant braking.
