New undercover police cars gain approval in Nashua
The new vehicles will replace existing police units that each have accumulated around 100,000 miles. One of the current vehicles has failed inspection due to rust and repairs exceeding $5,500, while another vehicle has been out of service because of necessary repairs, according to a memo to Mayor Donnalee Lozeau, chairman of the Finance Committee.
Alderman-at-large Dan Moriarty questioned the trade-in value of the department’s current vehicles, noting the quotes of $500 and $1,000 seems quite low.
According to Robert Gabriel, the city’s purchasing manager, the Nashua Police Department is also considering replacing two parking enforcement vehicles in the coming months.
The vehicles will include all major standard equipment, as well as special features such as heated outdoor mirrors, vinyl floor coverings, spare tires and wheel covers.
