Harmony discusses car purchase

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

The Harmony Town Council met for its monthly meeting Tuesday night to discuss the purchase of a town marshal car and the paving of various town roads.

Council President Janice Gooch informed the council of the purchase of the new town marshal car.

According to Gooch, the car is a 2006 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, which was bought for $7,500 with 72,000 miles on it.

"It's a very nice looking car," Gooch said. "It had $3,000 worth of equipment already on it to begin with, and it looks just like a new one."

However, due to a mix up with the DMV, the car does not have the necessary municipal plates yet.

With Town Attorney Eric Somheil's assistance, the council is working to remedy the situation in an effort to get the car on the road as soon as possible.

The council said it is also looking into whether or not to put decals on the car.

Meanwhile, the council received a quote from Wabash Valley Asphalt for $6,662 to pave various holes in the town streets.

According to the council, the project doesn't have an exact start date, but it will start very soon.

Lastly, a motion was made to have the septic tanks for the restrooms at Harmony Town Park pumped.

The Harmony Town Council meets the first Tuesday of every month, at 7 p.m., in the Harmony Community Center.

If you ask me, I'd say no decals on the patrol unit if the lights are not visible (as in a light bar on top of the car). It is my understanding that as long as the officer is in full uniform, no decals are needed. No uniform = totally marked car, uniform = unmarked car.
