Madison County commissioners unanimously approved the purchase of four vehicles for the sheriff’s office April 22.
Sheriff Kip Thomas appeared before commissioners and asked to purchase four vehicles for his department: three patrol cars and a truck to replace an old work detail truck.
The projected total cost is $112,000. The money will come from the county’s cash reserves, which are at approximately $5 million, according to BOC chairman Anthony Dove.
The three Dodge Charger patrol vehicles will cost $27,749 apiece. The estimated cost of the truck is $23,000.
