FRONT ROYAL -- Town Council approved at the their Monday night meeting, a bid from Jack Evans Chevrolet & Cadillac for the purchase of two 2012 Chevrolet Sonics at a total cost of $36,859.52.
The vehicles, both automatic sub-compact sedans and costing $18,429.76 each, will be used by town staff; one for the Town Manager and the other for the Finance Department.
Funding for the vehicles will come from the 2012 budget, and more specifically from a Town Manager budget line item and a Meter Reading budget line item.
Four local vendors were solicited for the purchase, but only one responded.
In other matters, council approved:
• Acceptance of the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant, which will be used to purchase a ruggedized computer to be used as a mobile data terminal in one of the police cruisers.
• Funding to wire the new town administration building in the amount of $77,596.95.
• A proclamation proclaiming April 28 as "Arbor Day" in Front Royal.
