Cruiser, Backhoe, Bridge Top Clarksburg Capital Requests
Clarksburg Town officials will be considering department requests for vehicles and equipment in the fiscal 2022 budget.
iBerkshires.com reports the Police Department, Highway Department and library presented their budgets and capital plans to the Finance Committee on Monday.
Police Chief Michael Williams's budget includes a request for a new police cruiser and police clerk.
Williams had asked for a new vehicle last year to replace the decade-old Chevrolet Tahoe but had been asked to put it off another year.
The sport utility vehicle has about 87,000 miles and has been running well, he said, "but you never know." It is expected to get new brakes, pads and rotors and tires in this year.
If a new cruiser was purchased, the Tahoe would become the backup vehicle and replace the force's old Chevy Impala.
