City of Gary to Add 100+ 'Green' Vehicles to Fleet

February 08, 2010

GARY, IN - The City of Gary has received a $3.1 million federal grant to equip its men and women in blue with up to 120 flex-fuel and hybrid vehicles, according to the Associated Press.

If qualified bidders can meet the request by the city's police department, the board could open bids by Feb. 17 and the vehicles could be on Gary's roads by this spring.

The bulk of Gary's order will be 86 four-door flex fuel sedans, but the city is also seeking more than 30 flex-fuel and hybrid sport utility vehicles and trucks with snow plows, reported AP.
