Posted: Updated:

Billings is getting 10 new cars for city operations.

City Council approved it at Monday nights meeting.

City officials made a deal with Denny Menholt Chevrolet, and Archie Cochrane Ford to purchase city vehicles.

The departments most in need of new vehicles are the animal shelter, engineering, airport crews, fire, and, solid waste.

"We opted not to trade in our old vehicles - instead we're going to sell them out. We feel as if we can obtain more money for the vehicles if we sell them out," said Mayor Thomas Hanel.

They plan on selling them in an auction. They also approved replacing four park restroom facilities.

The locations include - Mountain View Cemetery, Sacajawea Park, and Sword Rim Rock Park. They plan on replacing two locations at Sacajawea Park.
