Sturgeon Bay Police can proceed with SUV purchases

The Sturgeon Bay Finance, Purchasing and Building Committee has approved the Sturgeon Bay Police Department's request to buy two 2019 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor models for a total of $64,840.  The request was part of a planned replacement of two current vehicles. Sturgeon Bay, like other law enforcement agencies nationwide, have placed orders for the Explorer models with traditional gasoline-fueled engines.  Those models are being replaced and redesigned by Ford into a gas/hybrid engine this year.  The demand for gasoline-only engines has been so strong that Ford is limiting each department to two vehicles.  Committee chair David Ward says Sturgeon Bay was never concerned about being unable to get those models.



The purchase request for the Ford Explorers will now go to the full city council for approval.
