Texas City to Invest $20M in Police Vehicles

August 14, 2017

The City of El Paso, Texas, council has approved $68.75 million in certificates of obligation for city improvements. Approved August 7, about a third of this funding will go toward public safety fleet purchases, KFOX14 reported.

Of the nearly $70 million approved, $25.1 million will go toward public safety, including $19.8 million to replace the police fleet, $1.8 million for two new fire trucks and one ambulance, and a half million dollars for non-public safety vehicles.

The remaining public safety funds will be used for police and fire facility improvements, according to documents provided at the city council meeting.

    Sounds like El Paso is not interested in fixing there fleet but covering up it up with tax paying wallets.
