TRUSSVILLE –The Trussville city council approved several purchases last week including $23,798 for two Harley Davidson motorcycles to replace the current bikes used by the traffic division of the police department.
One had been damaged in a wreck and the other had reached the end of service. The motorcycle that is still operational will be declared as surplus and sold.
Approval was also given to accept the low bid for a new fire truck which will take about a year to build.
The city voted to give a 30 day notice to Alabama Correction Services that the contract for services would be terminated.
Several probation service companies have been under fire recently for questionable practices. Porter said there had been no problems with ACS, but the current legal issues with other probation companies led to the city’s decision to handle the services in-house.
