Police to get 5 new patrol vehicles

Eunice Police Chief Randy Fontenot was given the green light by aldermen to lease-purchase five Chevrolet Tahoe police units.
It’s the third time since Fontenot has been police chief that the city has approved a lease-purchase agreement for patrol vehicles.
The Board voted on April 10 to approve the purchase.
The five Tahoes will cost about $65,000 a year. Like the other lease-purchases, at the end of three years the city buys the units for $1 each.
