Selected local government issue: Police squad vehicle purchase
Description and opinion: Chief Mark Henzel of the police department has requested the purchase of a new squad vehicle for 2017. The Village of Pulaski approved the purchase and I believe that if I were in their shoes, I would too. It is very important that all of our vehicles are up to date to ensure the best service possible. Up-to-date equipment is crutial to the efficient protection of our people here in the village. Given the situation, I would've handled it the exact same way our local government did, both swiftly and effectively.
