According to coverage in the Trussville Tribune, the city's Streets and Sanitation Department is getting two Ford F-250 extended-cab pickups and one F-250 crew cab, and the Parks and Recreation Department will take delivery of one F-250 extended cab and one F-350 with a dump body.
The total investment in these vehicles, which will run on compressed natural gas (CNG), will be between $200,000 and $210,000. The Tribune notes that the city's police department is finishing up CNG conversions on three Chevy Tahoes.
Trussville Utilities and McCullough Oil recently completed the installation of CNG infrastructure at a Chevron station in the city. The municipal fleet will refuel here, and the CNG pump will be available to the public in March.
