Project Description

To fund an aging fleet of patrol cars that are either approaching or beyond their useful life of active duty. Funds will purchase equipment inside patrol cars to allow for technological upgrades of onboard computers for quicker information exchange between local and federal law enforcement agencies while conducting on-site investigations.

Estimated cost:
12 vehicles with mobile office equipment $435,000

Bonds of the City of Heber Springs in the maximum principal amount of $435,000 for the purpose of financing all or a portion of the cost of vehicles and equipment for the police department and, in order to pay the bonds, the levy and pledge of a 0.625% local sales and use tax within the City, which will replace an existing 0.625% sales and use tax levied in 2006 for the sole purpose of retiring bonds.
