So I noticed something
The fire department has a red colored fire alarm truck from Malden, which is a hand me down
The police department had a ford police pick up truck from Somerville, which they then handed over to Dpw, which makes it a double hand me down
The old police animal control car went to Dpw, which is a hand me down.
The police atv went to the mount hood , which makes it a hand me down
The police detective cars go to the Dpw , which makes it a hand me down
Yet the fire dept and dpw now have hybrid cars? For what? Why not hand me downs, like in the past?
Why the fire dept need a hybrid car? The chief already has a city issued car, Why they need another?
Dpw , fire and police need their own new stuff, not hand me downs, and gear that should remain with them not passed along to someone down the food chain.
The internets say that the electric vehicles + charging station were partially covered by a pair of $15,000 state grants.
I guess this brings about the question, if they are ok to be handed down to another department, why couldn't they continue to be used by their original department?
