New Police Vehicles, Next Phase of Housing Project Before Commission Tuesday

SPRINGFIELD, OH (Feb. 11, 2019) — Springfield City Commission will hear a proposal for the purchase of nine new police vehicles and a resolution related to Phase II of the Community Gardens senior housing project on Tuesday night.

Commissioners will hear a first reading on the purchase of nine 2019 Ford Police Interceptors from Lebanon Ford, Inc. The new vehicles will replace those purchased in 2009.

“When we went to voters to pass the levy two years ago, we committed to put those dollars toward our first responders,” said City Manager Bryan Heck. “The purchase of these vehicles is an essential part of that commitment – having the best, most effective equipment so our men and women in uniform have the tools they need to do their job.”

Commission will also hear a resolution to support an application for funding by the Neighborhood Housing Partnership for Phase II of the Community Gardens senior living project. Fifty units already exist at the former Community Hospital site at Burnett Road and High Street. The next phase of the $10 million project would add 60 units.

“This project is a shining example of the great things we can accomplish when we work together toward a better Springfield,” said Heck.

City Commission meets in the City Hall Forum Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m.
