Plymouth Police Chief, Dave Bacon told the board he sent requests for quotes to three companies: Oliver Ford Lincoln, Rochester Ford and Auto Park Ford in Bremen.
The only quote received was from Oliver Ford. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for a 2021 Ford Explorer Utility Interceptor is $39,905. Steve Keiser from Oliver Ford submitted a quote for the City of Plymouth at $33,603 each.
The chief will be trading in a 2014 Ford Taurus and Oliver gave the city $4,000 for the trade in. The final cost to the police department will be $63,206.
The chief said there is a delay in getting vehicles and the Board of Public Works and Safety approved his request to immediately move forward with the purchase.
