Hybrid vehicles coming to Lakeland City Hall
The Board of Commissioners recently authorized Mayor Scott Carmichael to execute a grant contract with the Tennessee Department of Transportation for three hybrid vehicles. The federally funded grant will pay for 80% of the cost of three hybrid vehicles to be used in normal city operations and will replace three older vehicles. The City will operate the vehicles and examine whether the gas savings and reduced emissions justify purchasing additional hybrid vehicles.
