She was told by some of the dealers that including in the specifications that the vehicles needed to have a five year/100,000 mile warranty was increasing the cost, and probably wasn’t necessary. She said it was a holdover from bidding diesel vehicles. She said that combining the bids of the two departments wasn’t gaining the expected savings.  Hendrickson said that Conservation wanted to get a 2017 model, but only 2018 models were available in this bid configuration, and he believes if he bids his single pickup separately he will be able to get a 2017 model.  AYES:  Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.  NAYS:  None.   Resolution adopted.  On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
