A special meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Village of Delhi was held on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. in the Village Hall Boardroom.
Present: Mayor: Richard Maxey
Trustees: Jeremy Fitch, Robin Hultenius, Sridhar “Sam” Samurdrala
Christopher Maney - absent
The meeting started at 12:05 p.m.
Police Chief Michael Mills was present to report that the K-9 Vehicle has been totaled out by our insurance company after hitting a deer. It has been confirmed with the insurance company that the Village will receive replacement value for the car, up to the insured amount of $27,000. That money, combined with monies already in reserve for a police vehicle, will cover the cost of a proposed new vehicle, a 2016 Dodge Charger.
The new Charger will be unmarked, with lights, and will come at a cost of $37,652 which includes the lighting package, siren, interior partition, wiring harnesses and rifle mount, along with other options. The Charger will replace the Chevy Impala, which is going to be converted into the new K-9 car, since all of the equipment from the old K-9 car fits the Impala currently in service as a patrol car.
Motion was made by Trustee Samudrala to move forward with the purchase of the 2016 Dodge Charger from Robert Green Auto at a cost of $37,652. Motion was seconded by Trustee Fitch and passed unanimously.
Motion was made by Trustee Fitch to adjourn. Motion was seconded by Trustee Samudrala and passed unanimously.
Meeting adjourned at 12:15 p.m.
