Test Vehicles

Benton County Sheriff Kelley Cradduck has been authorized to buy 10 Chevrolet Tahoes for his department for patrol vehicles and other uses. Cradduck told justices of the peace he is interested in working with the county on the possible use of compressed natural gas fuel and could convert some of the new vehicles to see if it meets the county’s needs. At Thursday’s Transportation Committee meeting, Craig Hull of Fuels and Supplies said converting the vehicles could cost about $10,000 each.
