The County of Wythe has determined that an appropriate use of CARES Act funds is to purchase crew-cab trucks for certain emergency responses by its fire departments, to minimize personal risk and disease exposure to first responders, their gear and personal vehicles. Wythe County, therefore, requests sealed bids from interested new vehicle dealers for the following:
Four (4) new ¾-ton 4x4 crew cab four-door pickup trucks, red, black or white in color (red strongly preferred); model year 2020 or newer; minimum 6.0L gasoline V8 engines; two short-bed, two long-bed. Desired features include, but are not limited to, backup cameras, tow packages, cab steps, bucket front seats, non-carpeted flooring, with power windows and door locks. Trucks must be delivered to the County no later than Wednesday, December 16, 2020.

Bids should include: vehicle make, model, year and description; pricing for each vehicle; features included; color; number of vehicles available; manufacturer’s warranty period; expected delivery date.
Bids must be received by Wednesday, November 4, 2020, no later than 2 p.m. Bids will be opened and read aloud at that time. Wythe County reserves the right to select more than one vendor based on pricing and availability, or to reject any and/or all bids.
