    Why in the world does the town need yet another new police car? Especially a Ford Interceptor? Why, they could do 100 mph in our little town chasing down hardened traffic violators! YEEHAW!

    Why can’t the police trade off at the beginning and end of their shifts? They go to someone’s home, get the police car, and at the end they return it. It is ridiculous for a town this small to have all of these high-dollar police cars. The town has pretty much run out the drug dealers, so why do we need so many police cars? Once upon a time there was one police car and they did the tradeoff thing. Back then there were way more full-time residents and yet they managed with one police car. This is not Virginia Beach. We don’t need all of these police cars and we sure don’t need anymore debt!
