Troy OK's police car purchase

Troy Borough is using part of its natural gas impact fee money to buy a police car.

At its last meeting, borough council agreed to use a portion of the money to purchase the vehicle, a 2009 Crown Victoria. It replaces the old police car, an Impala. The cost for the Crown Victoria was $16,295, plus delivery costs. It includes police equipment. The radios have to be transferred over from the old car. Troy Borough was allocated $79,922.34 in impact fee money.

In addition, council also agreed to advertise a tentative 2013 budget that doesn't raise taxes or sewer or water fees.
