City of Covington, Ga. Purchases Bi-fuel CNG Trucks & Expands Police Take-Home Program

October 11, 2013

The City of Covington, Ga. purchased five gasoline and compressed natural gas (CNG) bi-fuel Dodge Ram trucks at a steep discount ($35,250 each) after another city's purchase of the trucks fell through, according to CovNews.com. The trucks will be fueled at the City's CNG fueling station once construction is completed.

Additionally, the City is purchasing 19 Dodge Chargers for its police fleet to complete its take-home vehicle program. The mayor hopes the take-home program will increase officer accountability for vehicles and extend vehicle life, the newspaper reported.
