At a recent meeting, the Milton City Council approved a $1,175,700 contract for the purchase of the quint. According to city documents, “for fleet consistency and functionality, the quint will be built by Pierce Mfg. and will be provided by Pierce’s sole southeastern distributor, Ten-8 Fire & Safety, LLC. The Pierce Ascendant will take approximately 12 months to build.”
The approved contract takes advantage of a pre-pay program, which will save the city approximately $40,000 and avoid a price increase of up to 10% in June due to the increase in cost for component parts.
