Huntington City Council to vote on the purchase of several new vehicles

Nov. 25, 2012 @ 10:19 PM

HUNTINGTON -- Vehicle purchases headline an otherwise light Huntington City Council meeting agenda.

The council meets at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26, at Huntington City Hall, 800 5th Ave.

On the agenda are four ordinances on second reading that pertain to the purchase of five new police cruisers, two utility police vehicles, 24 mobile data terminals for police cruisers and two crew cab trucks for the Public Works Department.

The police cruisers cost $113,570 and would be acquired through a three-year, lease-purchase agreement. One of the utility police vehicles would be added to the lease-purchase agreement, while the second vehicle would be purchased with insurance proceeds and money from the Police Department's budget. Each utility police vehicle costs $25,518.

The crew cab trucks cost $90,266, while the mobile data terminals cost $50,376 and will be paid for through a state grant.

Also Monday, the council will vote on Local Economic Development Assistance grants for the Rape Crisis Center, A.D. Lewis Community Center and Museum of Radio and Technology and will vote on the appointment of Mary Elizabeth Buchanan Kilgore to the Historic Preservation Commission. It would be her first term on the commission.
