Emergency Resolution No. 11-2018. A Resolution accepting a donation of mattresses for the
Department of Fire and declaring an emergency.

Background.  The fire station mattresses are on a five-year replacement rotation due to wear, tear, 
and typical life expectancy.  We see less useful life in these items due to multiple staff members 
of varying size configuration utilizing them each night.  Dependent upon the brand and style most 
supportive of the budget at the time of purchase, the useful life can be affected.   We contacted 
Serta in an effort to keep the purchase local, and to determine if they could support a purchase 
from the Gateway Drive manufacturing location.   In processing the request, Serta management 
decided  that  they  would  like  to  offer  their  support  of  the  Fire  Department  by  
replacing  12 mattresses at no cost to the Department.   We would be responsible for purchasing new 
frames utilized with the specific type of mattress.

The donation would be in the amount of approximately $22,000, with the Fire Department budget
suppoeting the cost of the mattress frames at approximately $1,800.0.

Nice to see Serta Mattress donate to our Fire Department however funny it is for us to pay our people to use their product while on the clock.

Yes, I understand the fire department works several day's shifts, I just had to say this for fun. No offense meant. Our fire department is excellent.
