City Council Delays Toledo Police Car Lease

June 27, 2007

TOLEDO, OH – An ordinance offered by the Toledo Police Department to lease 35 new police cars was pulled from Toledo City Council’s agenda at a June 19 council meeting, according to the Toledo Blade newspaper. Chief of Staff Robert Reinbolt said he wanted to investigate whether the city’s costs could be reduced. The ordinance calls for the city to spend $350,000 a year for three years from its capital replacement fund to lease marked police sedans from Charlie’s Dodge in Maumee. After the third year, the city could buy the cars for $1 each. The deal works out to $30,000 per car.

The contract is under a standard state bid. The money would pay for Dodge Chargers with the police package, which includes lights, siren, screen separating the rear seat from the front seat, and computer.
