The opportunity is there for the Huron County commissioners to improve the cruiser situation at the sheriff's office.
At a commissioners' meeting last week, Sheriff Dane Howard, along with Major Greg Englund and Auditor Roland Tkach, presented a plan where for about $48,000 a year for four years, six new cruisers can be obtained through a lease program.
Howard told the board nine cruisers have more than 170,000 miles on them, with a number more than 200,000. The new vehicles would be Ford Explorers.
Commissioner Gary Bauer said after the meeting the board would review this proposal for a couple weeks.
