Peach State $679,942.00 each Custom Pumper
Fire Line $686,711.00 each Custom Pumper
Peach State $442.767.00 each Commercial Pumper
Fire Line $453.00 each Commercial Pumper

After reviewing the acceptable bids the recommendation is to award the bid to Peach
State based on the lowest price as well as other requirements not being met . The
committee feels the difference in price is justified by the inconsistencies and deviations
in the analysis of the Fire Line Proposal. Gordon County will be purchasing 4 pumpers.
This award will be funded from the 2018 SPLOST funds.
Please see the attached Fire Apparatus Committee recommendation.
