The auction of three former Charles City Police Department squad cars ends Wednesday.
Up for sale via online auction through Cedar Valley Auction Company is a 2005 Crown Victoria, a 2006 Dodge Charger and a 2009 Dodge Charger. Chief Hugh Anderson admits these vehicles come with high mileage.
Anderson says the department looks to rotate in a new vehicle every year, but the budget doesn’t always allow that to happen. When they can add a new squad car, one of the older units is often transferred to another city department to extend the use of the car while saving the city money. Anderson adds that the vehicles up for auction have received regular maintenance throughout their entire time with the city.
Proceeds from the sales go to the City’s general fund.
The former squad cars are available for viewing at Cedar Valley Auction in Charles City, but bids are only accepted online through 7 p.m. Wednesday. You can find a link to the vehicle auction here.
