Residents OK reallocating bonded funds

BEACON FALLS — Residents voted in favor of using leftover bond funds to purchase a police car and a Ford F-550 at a town meeting last week.

Residents voted 12-0 on three separate resolutions to reallocate money from a $4.35 million general obligation bond issued last year for the purchase of the vehicles.

Voters approved using $34,000 left over from the purchase of two SUVs for the Beacon Falls Police Department to buy a police interceptor sedan for the department.

The other two resolutions, which totaled $25,500, allocated funds for a new Ford F-550, which the town will use as a plow truck.

The money comes from the funds left over from the purchase of the police SUVs and money left over from the purchase of another F-550.
