McDONOUGH — The city of McDonough unanimously deemed 11 police vehicles as surplus with little to no discussion Monday night.
Chief Preston Dorsey presented the board with a request to approve the vehicles as surplus because of high mileage and mechanical problems.
Some of the vehicles are as new as 2005, while others date to 1998.
Dorsey said the surplus vehicles will eventually be sold through govdeals.com
“They’re old, they’re either unrepairable or have too many miles,” Dorsey said.
According to the agenda, all vehicles in question appear to be Ford Crown Victorias or Chevy Impalas. Dorsey said the vehicles have already been replaced over the past two years.
“The money will go back into the city’s general fund,” Dorsey said.
The presentation and discussion lasted less than five minutes.
