City Plans Ahead and Saves a Bundle on Gas

Some quick thinking by Madison officials helped the city avoid hundreds of thousands of dollars in gas costs.

William Vanden Brook of Motor Equipment says, “We entered into a contract at the end of the year for all our needs for 2005, that's 850,000 gallons of fuel at an average cost of $1.615”

Vandenbrook made the purchase with the help of the mayor's and comptroller's offices late last year when prices were at their lowest.
It's currently saving the city 40-50 cents per gallon.
