HINCKLEY TWP. –– MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland will get a pair of new-to-them cots from Hinckley Township after trustees voted Tuesday to donate the items to the medical facility.
“We listed these on GovDeals.com,” said Fire Chief Jestin Grossenbaugh. “I believe the starting rate was $500 (each). They never sold … Metro, (which) is our medical director said, ‘Hey, we’d love to use these in our training lab.’ ”
Trustees approved Grossenbaugh’s request to donate the cots to MetroHealth.
Grossenbaugh also requested money for repairs to one of the garage doors at the fire station that was damaged when an ambulance accidentally backed into it.
“We did claim this through our insurance company from an ambulance that backed into it. There was a $500 deductible,” said Grossenbaugh.
The remaining cost of the repairs is $286.70.
Grossenbaugh also asked for the funds to do maintenance on the other doors at the department. The cost of the maintenance to the doors is $5,729, which was approved by trustees.
