Magistrates OK six new sheriff’s cars
The fiscal court voted unanimously Wednesday morning to allow Sheriff Troy Young to finance six new cruisers for his deputies.
The cruisers will cost just over $30,000 each when fully equipped, marking the first time the sheriff’s office has purchased new vehicles since 2007.
“We’ve got some with over 200,000 miles on them,” said Young. “They have average of 150,000 miles on them and are costing us too much for maintenance.
