Toledo City Councilors Wednesday night agreed with Police Chief David Enyeart that it’s time to beging replacing the city’s aging fleet of law enforcement vehicles. Wednesday night they approved the purchase of a Ford Explorer SUV pursuit vehicle that will not only add speed to patrols but also the capacity to ensure that those arrested on criminal calls and traffic stops will be transported directly to the Lincoln County Jail. No need for back up vehicles.
Purchase price around $42,000. The price was already in the city’s budget. No surprises or impacts to other funds.
