The City Council now seeks to introduce its first compressed natural driven truck soon. The vehicle’s cost would be around USD 264,000. Moreover, the Electric Department is also trying to deploy a CNG powered bucket truck. Mayor expects that the NGV plan will eventually extend to city and county mass transit system. “We can complain about fuel prices and try to find ways to limit vehicle usage which could lead to cuts in services to our citizens, or we can be proactive. We have decided to be proactive and green,” the official pointed out.
Another project is connected with the possibility of constructing a fast-fill natural gas station, as part of the “CNG corridor” on Interstate 65. This initiative would involve an investment of up to USD 400,000 and is being advertised for bids.
