HILLSVILLE — The Town of Hillsville has approved a financing agreement with Carter Bank & Trust to buy two new police cars.
The lease-purchase agreement, which has a 1.5 percent interest rate, is for $58,271 and will pay for two 2016 Dodge Chargers. The new cars will replace older vehicles.
Town Manager Retta Jackson told town council members at their Oct. 24 meeting that this is the second phase of a new vehicle purchase for the police department. Hillsville bought two other cars in June, for a total of $57,000.
