The Knox Board of Public Works approved the purchase of a Dodge Avenger SE for the Knox City Police Department.
Three quotes were sought for the car. The lowest bid of $17,894 came from Thomas Dodge in Highland, Indiana. The city has dealt with the company in purchasing squad cars for the police department in previous situations.
The money for the vehicle was transferred from several accounts and approved by the Knox City Council by a resolution to transfer funds Tuesday night. The vehicle will not be used for patrols. It will be utilized by the detective on duty.
The Board of Works members approved the lowest bid.
