Electric police cars

Seems odd the City Council can spend $400,000 for cars when the 4- or 5-year contract with the police is still outstanding. Arbitration will cost more than the $6 million that was in the budget for the contract. Probably closer to $10 million. But it is taxpayer money, not theirs. The citizens do not matter and as in the past, mob will rule the council. Seems high for an electric car. Mercedes cost less.
