Athens Police Get Back-Up in Green Fleet Debate

March 19, 2008

ATHENS, OHIO – Athens Police wanted to put off a possible switch to greener vehicles, recently gained some support from Mayor Paul Wiel and Paula Horan Moseley service-safety director. City Council members have been trying to work out an arrangement with the police department to switch to smaller, less gas-guzzling vehicles, according to the Athens Messenger.

The department is asking for two marked police cruisers (usually Ford Crown Victorias) and one unmarked vehicle (a Ford Explorer Sport Trac). The estimated cost for those vehicles is $75,730. 

The ordinance authorizing the purchase of the three vehicles will soon be up for approval.

Mayor Wiehl and Horan Moseley asked the Council to support the department’s choices this year.

Used police marked vehicles are passed down to other city departments.
