The Cedar Bluff Police Department will be getting four new patrol vehicles.
The current fleet is aging and in need of thousands of dollars in repairs, according to Mayor Martha Baker.
The new Chevy Tahoe’s come with a 5-year 100-thousand mile warranty and could be ready in December of January.
The Cedar Bluff Town Council approved the purchase during their Monday meeting.
The financing provided by Southern Bank is actually cheaper than the cost would have been to lease the vehicles.
The total cost is 116-thousand 136 dollars.
In other action, the council approved a resolution to bill for fire protection and related services rendered by the Cedar Bluff Fire Department.
This is something the town had already been doing for a while. The resolution just puts it in writing.
The council also approved the deannexation of property on County Road 131.
The action came at the request of Franklin K. Ford and Mark Pike, who claim their property was included in the town limits in error.
The council also approved the purchase of solar lights for the park.
The gas lights were shut off because the gas bills were running upwards of 800-dollars a month, according to Councilman Norman Burton.
The 12 lights will cost close to 12-hundred dollars, but there will be no more utility bills associated with lighting the park.
