Versailles councilors approved the purchase of a new police vehicle at Monday night's meeting.

A 2013 Ford Taurus with a police interceptor package will be acquired through Tri-Star Ford at a cost of $28,423.17.

Council president Linda Sheedy said the borough's oldest police vehicle, a 2005 Ford Crown Victoria, was costing taxpayers more in repairs than a new vehicle would to buy.

“We really do need to have two police vehicles,” Sheedy said.

The new sedan will compliment the officers' 2010 Ford Expedition.

Paperwork for the Taurus was sent out Tuesday. There's no word on when the new vehicle will be put in service.

The Crown Victoria is up for sale. A formal advertisement will run in Thursday's edition of The Daily News.

A full council also unanimously accepted the resignation of part-time patrolman Jordan Angelo.

Sheedy said Angelo accepted a full-time position elsewhere.

Versailles now has three full-time and four part-time officers.

Council awarded a $3,000 bid from EZ Overhead Door to replace the public works garage doors.

Sheedy said the expense was a necessary repair and not previously budgeted.

Council plans to open bids for televising and dye testing of borough sewer lines on May 23.

Resident Dennis Keefe was appointed to the Elizabeth Township Area EMS board.

The EMS company plans to make a presentation about its subscription drive at council's workshop meeting on June 3 at 7 p.m. in the borough building.

Council's next regular meeting is June 10 at 7 p.m.
