• Hendricks County commissioners approve plan on replacing vehicles

    January 10, 2013 2 comments

    Hendricks County commissioners held their first meeting of the new year this week and approved the purchase of a new fleet of vehicles for various departments.

    Steven Penn of the Hendricks County Flyer reports that Hendricks County Sheriff Dave Galloway and Fleet Manager Terry Kennard were on hand to present the proposed vehicle purchases for the sheriff’s department.

    Galloway told commissioners that new vehicles were needed because many current vehicles are high in mileage and the department needs more four-wheel drive vehicles because it currently only has one.

    The pricetag for all of the purchases is a little over $294,000, and all vehicles will be from Indiana State Quantity Purchase Agreement (QPA) listings or Johnson County Commissioner Bids.

    The vehicles will also need items such as decals, bolts and wiring, equipment consoles, and stripping out the old cars, but the entire purchase will not exceed the county’s $340,000 fleet budget.

    County commissioners also voted to appoint Phyllis Palmer to serve as president and Bob Gentry to serve as vice president. The commission also welcomed Matt Whetstone to the board, who is taking over a seat vacated by Eric Wathen.
