The Phillipsburg Town Council approved a resolution authorizing a lease agreement with Ford Motor Company at their meeting on Tuesday night.
The Phillipsburg Police Department is in need of two additional police cruisers and Council approved acquiring these vehicles through a lease agreement with Ford Motor. The town will be leasing two 2014 Ford Police Interceptor AWD Sedan vehicles. Last year, Phillipsburg acquired Ford Taurus Police vehicles, but according to Acting Municipal Clerk Victoria Kleiner, the town was not in need of any other SUV police vehicles so Sedan vehicles were leased to fill the fleet.
The per month lease cost for these vehicles is $1,589.29 per vehicle for a 24 month period.
