City to buy 2 police vehicles for $27,258.30 apiece.
The Plymouth City Commission on Monday authorized the purchase of two police vehicles for $27,258.30 apiece from Lou LaRiche Chevrolet in Plymouth. The vehicles, both 2013 Chevy Caprice patrol cars, will replace a 2009 Chevy Tahoe and 2009 Ford Crown Victoria, the latter of which no longer is in production, City Manager Paul Sincock said. The price of the two cars falls within the $75,000 the city had budget under its vehicle replacement program, Sincock said. He said the city anticipates having to replace the cars within the next 3-4 months. Sincock said Lou LaRiche Chevrolet in Plymouth was able to sell the vehicles at state bid price, so the city is opting to buy the patrol cars locally.
