Madison County Chairman Kurt Prenzler and County Board members Ray Wesley and Mike Walters have presented two former Sheriff Department vehicles to Mayor Mike McCormick for use in the village of Godfrey
The village purchased the decommissioned vehicles for $1.
“We are thankful for this,” McCormick said. “These vehicles will help bring down village costs.”
McCormick said employees would use the “new” vehicles rather than the village continuing to pay mileage reimbursement.
Prenzler said the county makes the vehicles available to governmental entities after being taken out of service due to high mileage or age. The county initiated the program more than 13 years ago for municipalities and emergency service departments.
