Wellsville buying police cars

By The Herald Staff | 3/17/2014

WELLSVILLE — It’s time to update the fleet, city officials said.

The Wellsville City Council recently approved the purchase of two new police package 2014 SUV Interceptors for the Wellsville Police Department. The vehicles are set to arrive in 60 to 90 days through a three-year, lease-to-buy program from Shawnee Mission Ford, which offered the lowest bid to the council, Tammy Jones, secretary for the meeting, said. The cost of the new SUVs is $9,065.92 per car per year, Jones said. The vehicles already have been ordered, she said.

The Wellsville Police Department also plans to send the existing vehicles in its fleet to a shop to see which are in the best shape to keep and which might need to be sold, Jones said.

“Other vehicles will be filled,” she said. “The police department is looking into that.”

The council also approved $968.97 for replacing three awnings on City Hall, 411 Main St., Wellsville. The project already is started and should be completed by April, Jones said.
