The Department will also be looking to sell three police vehicles with over 100-thousand miles on them. Recently the department made a vehicle purchase thanks to a grant they received.

The Department would also like to make a purchase to help out their K-9 area. Chief Reidy explains they would like to purchase a concrete pad for where they keep the dog. He feels this will make keeping the dogs area clean much easier.
