bank simply transfers ownership to the county.
County officials are often surprised at how
fast this entire process can occur. Due to the
quick responses of bid requests by ACCG and
depending on the county's meeting schedule,
it is not unusual for a county to complete the
application and have the funds within three to
four weeks.
A few quotes from county officials who have
recently used this program:
My experience with the ACCG lease
purchase program was very positive. It was
relatively quick and the process was smooth.
I would use this service again and I would
recommend it to other counties.
-Vickie Neikirk, Dawson County Chief
Financial Officer
We recently ordered a fire truck from E-One.
Even with their in-house financing through
Wells Fargo we saved money over the term
of the lease. ACCG and the bank were easy to
work with on the closing and setting up a draw
down schedule. Will look forward to working
with them again in the future.
-Frank Ethridge, Long County Manager
The program allows members to use the
statewide purchasing power of ACCG to
attract competitive rates. Financing can be
for a period of time not to exceed the useful

The ACCG Equipment Leasing Program
enables the association to lease equipment
purchased to counties using funds provided
by the program's participating banks.
Interested counties should contact ACCG

three to 10 years) and counties must meet
established credit tests to qualify for the
program. Counties will often group their
equipment purchases into one transaction
to get the best financing rate and to minimize
administrative work. Equipment and vehicle
sales companies normally offer financing
options and while these interest rates can be
competitive, we find that the rates received
by ACCG are often lower. Counties are under
no obligation to accept the bids received
by ACCG but often find the process to be
so much easier and the interest rates
more competitive.
ACCG's Financial Services Programs
continue to make capital equipment financing
fast and convenient, all while garnering very
competitive tax-exempt interest rates for
Georgia's counties.
Successful local government starts with
planning for the future. Let ACCG help you plan
for your future equipment purchases.
