City of Bainbridge gets new vehicles

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - The city of Bainbridge public works department has some new vehicles on the road.

The City now has 16 brand new vehicles from Enterprise.

Those 16 replaced 20 vehicles that were 17 to 25 years old.

City manager Chris Hobby said this will save the city around one hundred and 40 thousand dollars over the next 10 years.

" That's by getting better fuel efficiency and by reducing our maintenance costs. Obviously the vehicles were getting very old and costly to keep on the road." said Hobby.

Under the agreement with enterprise, the vehicles will be swapped out every five years.
