Prairie Grove Pur­chases New Po­lice Cars

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - NEWS -

In a spe­cial meet­ing last week, Prairie Grove City Coun­cil ap­proved a res­o­lu­tion 5-0 to pur­chase two new po­lice ve­hi­cles for about $27,000 each.

The ve­hi­cles, 2018 Ford Ex­plor­ers, are in the city’s 2018 bud­get but state law re­quires the City Coun­cil to pass a res­o­lu­tion for pur­chases that ex­ceed $20,000. The ve­hi­cles had ar­rived in Lit­tle Rock but the po­lice de­part­ment could not pick them up un­til the pur­chase was ap­proved by the Coun­cil.

Mayor Sonny Hud­son said he de­cided to call a spe­cial meet­ing in­stead of wait­ing un­til the May Coun­cil meet­ing to vote on the res­o­lu­tion.

The Ex­plor­ers will re­place the de­part­ment’s old­est ve­hi­cles, a 2010 Chevro­let Im­pala and a 2013 Chevro­let Im­pala.
