WADSWORTH: City Council Tuesday approved the purchase of two 2013 Dodge Charger police specials for the city's police department.
Safety Director Matt Hiscock said the cruisers are expected to cost $43,633 and will replace two of the older cruisers in the department's fleet.
Hiscock noted the city has some of its own equipment that will be added to the cruisers after the city purchases them.
In other action, the council agreed to purchase a fire safety trailer with an expected cost of $58,000.
Acting Fire Chief Ron Likley said the trailer would be used as an educational tool to teach school children safety lessons.
