SERVING THE

SOUTHWEST

All Tanked Up

LaMATS Purchasing Services assisted the City of Breaux Bridge in locating several pre-owned tanker trucks at affordable prices.  

"You provided six vehicles that we reviewed in detail. We decided on one that was delivered to us this morning… and will be put to use by the end of this business day. We appreciate your efforts and look forward to reaching out to you again soon."

Crawfish Capital of the World
 

Greener Grass

The City of Westlake affordably equipped its local treasure, the National Golf Club of Louisiana with financing for a new aerifier, John Deere turf sprayer, heavy duty debris blowers and other gear for greens maintenance. 

"The tax exempt lease purchase structured by Government Capital Corporation was the perfect solution. The financing options offered provided the budget flexibility we needed. Additionally, the process was quick, easy and enabled us to bundle purchases from multiple vendors into one financing, taking delivery of the equipment on our schedule."

To Protect and Serve

LaMATS contracted with Lafayette based Emerg-Equip to supply dozens of essential police department vehicle gear such as lights, sirens, alarms and steel window guards for city police vehicles. In participation with our "piggyback" purchasing program, New Iberia agreed to serve as sponsor of a cooperative purchasing agreement, allowing other Louisiana local governments to receive the same low pricing on emergency equipment they secured through LaMATS. 

“Other communities were there for us in our time of need, and we would like to do the same for others.”

Maxine Gonsoulin
New Iberia City Clerk 

Living a Little Easier

LaMATS partner Millage Management LLC boosted available revenue for the City of Crowley by nearly $50,000 through assistance with their Roll Forward and other millage concerns. 

"Millage Management stepped in and saved the day. [Owner Kristyn Childers] has taken my stress level from 100 to 0. Her services are amazing and free to members of the Louisiana Municipal Association. She is a God send for me!"
