Staff Summary
* The Lake County Clerk's Office applied for and received a grant from the Center for Tech and Civic Life. These funds need to be used for the purposes of planning and operationalizing safe and secure election administration, voter education and outreach, updated training as well as support technology improvements for voting in Lake County.
* The Clerk's Office identified the need for a vehicle with towing capacity to safely facilitate transportation of a mobile satellite trailer designed to facilitate a variety of Lake County Clerk tasks. The 2022 Ford F-250 XL was selected to meet this need based on the Lake County Division of Transportation's (LCDOT) feedback that it would be safe and effective to the mobile satellite trailer.
* National Auto Fleet Group is a vendor associated with LCDOT and is currently used for purchasing trucks for county purposes.
* Pursuant to the Counties Code, Chapter 55 of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (55 ILCS 5/3-2003.2) the County Clerk has the authority to control the internal operations of his or her office and to procure the necessary equipment, materials and services to perform the duties of the Office.
* The Lake County Clerk has agreed that the award shall be expended on specific election administration needs which include non-partisan voter education, voting equipment or supplies and election administration equipment and she may allocate funds among those needs. Purchasing this vehicle will support the grant requirements in areas of both community outreach as well as voter education and other election services.
