The Elbert County Board of Commissioners are moving forward with the purchase of two used vehicles for the Elbert County Sheriff’s Department.
During a called meeting earlier this week, Elbert County Sheriff Melvin Andrews went before the commission to request two more used cruisers, which would be purchased from the Georgia State Patrol.
When asked on how the previous three used cruisers were doing that were also purchased from the Georgia State Patrol, Andrews said they are holding up well.
“They are doing real good”, said Andrews. “The officers that drive them say they are performing well, and that they are doing good.”
The motion to move forward with the purchase passed with a unanimous 3-0 vote; Commissioners Harold Reynolds and Freddie Jones were not present at the meeting.
Total cost for the vehicles comes in at $10,870; and that money is coming out of the county’s SPLOST fund.
According to Sheriff Andrews, the only equipment that the recently acquired cruisers are going to require is a pair of radios.
