The Grove City Council approved a motion to advertise for bids to equip four new police cars at a regular meeting Tuesday night.
City Manager Bruce Johnson said the Dodge Chargers were purchased through a program that allows cities in Oklahoma to “piggy-back” on state bids and obtain cars for the price the state pays for highway patrol and other emergency vehicles.
He said the new Chargers would be equipped with everything but cameras, which will have to wait till next year.
In other business, the council voted to hire a company called E.S.T., out of Norman, to handle the state-required bridge inspections for the city.
Johnson also reported that a significant amount of work is being done on Highway 59. Currently, he said, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation is working on storm drainage.
In addition, Johnson said the new Olympus North Cemetery has been completed.
“We are currently working on rules and determining what the cost for plots will be,” he said. “All that will be presented at the next meeting.”
The Grove City Council meets in Room 5 of the Grove Community Center, 104 West Third Street, at 6:00 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of each month.
